On Thursday, America finally announced its new signing, Roger Martinez.
Piojo hopes the Colombian’s arrival will go some way to resolving the club’s attacking issues, but lots of fans are feeling underwhelmed after being linked with Luuk de Jong and Jackson Martinez earlier in the summer.
Supporters and pundits were divided on social media. Many thought the 24-year-old would prove to be a shrewd acquisition, but others were convinced he would be an expensive flop.
Here some of the best reaction. Make sure you let us know what you think in the comments at the end.
Villarreal bought Roger Martinez in the winter for 14M and it's hard to say anything else than that he has flopped. They have now sold 50% of his rights to Club América for 8.5M~ which makes it very likely that Bacca will stay at Villarreal

Well Roger Martinez was a weird one for Villarreal. Not even loaned out, sold, despite his loan only becoming permanent a couple of months ago.

@ClubAmerica a thousand more times Henry Martin over Roger Martinez. At this point it's really sad and disappointed how a big club like you guys and still we don't have our 9 .

Leí varias críticas de los aficionados de América hacia Roger Martínez. Lo conozco bien de su paso por Racing y puedo decir que es un muy buen delantero. Combina potencia, técnica, buen giro para ambos perfiles y cambio de ritmo. Tiene personalidad, es atrevido.
