This tournament had been especially tough for Gonzalez as he only had action for 9 minutes and just for the return of the Final had to be considered before the suspension of Stiven Barreiro by the red card he received in Ciudad Universitaria in the first leg.

As is often the case in stories with a happy ending, everything was lined up so that Nacho would leave football through the big door. After the victory against PUMAs of UNAM in the game back from the final, Nacho González could not avoid the tears, for such a special moment in the coronation of his team.
«I visualized this many nights, I dreamed of a scene like the one we just had. It’s a lot of things, the last three years I’ve been through complicated things. This tournament I wanted to quit because I didn’t play. It’s worth the effort, the sacrifice,» the captain of La Fiera externed.

Nacho González also explained how his captaincy took place in the most decisive match of the season for La Fiera in the Guardians 2020, where he had much to do with his partner Luis Montes, who gave him the stafeta, of course, prior to the technician’s permission, to carry the captain’s badge.
«Chapo gave me the captain’s badge and that’s brothers’s. That’s why there’s that harmony between all of us. He told me he talked to Nacho (Ambriz) and told me he’d be the captain. I told him that by no means that he was the best player in the league, but he tells me please do it for me,» the captain said.

Nacho González against Pumas: 90 minutes, 1 heroic sweep within the area, won 5 of 6 duels, 4 clearings, 4 innings (4 removes), 1 interception, completed 24 of 26 installments and 3 recoveries.
