“Bringing Cordova to Salt Lake was amongst our top priorities when we began discussing potential options for 2022,” said Real Salt Lake General Manager Elliot Fall, now in his 15th year with the Club. “We’ve seen him excel with Venezuela, both as a youth and senior national team member, and during his Bundesliga ascension as well. Cordova provides additional versatility to our attack, service from the wings, the ability to go at opponents and lethal finishing. He immediately makes us deeper with his quality, providing intensity, incisiveness and intelligence.”

The 24-year-old comes to Real Salt Lake after playing the 2020 and 2021 seasons on loan at Arminia Bielefeld. He has been under contract with FC Augsburg since the 2017 season.

He began his career at Caracas.

“My arrival to RSL has been very nice, everything is well-organized. We have everything to bring out the best version of us, to get in form for the best performances of your career,” said Cordova, nicknamed “La Pantera,” following his first week training with the Club at preseason in Tucson. “I think the Club is very good, the style of play, with a good group of guys. From day one I could see this group is a family by the way my teammates received me. I don’t want to talk too much about it, because as they say, ‘Those who talk a lot, do little,’ but I want to compete with my teammates, fight for the badge and make big achievements here in the MLS.

“I think anything is possible when you see the group of guys we have and their capacity. We know we can get very far this season.”
