The win saw Mons reach the first major final in the club’s history and the semi-final was a big occasion for the team and for the striker: “It was an important game in the club’s history and in the personal the possibility of playing a final is always rewarding; it was an amazing night for me on a personal note as I was able to get in the score sheet and help the team progress in the next round.”
Mons are also now one win away from the Europa League, with only Europa in the way of a big achievement for the club. Pibe, who featured in the competition on loan at Lincoln earlier this season, knows how big this would be: “Yes being in the final means going through to the Europa League it’s an incredible feeling to actually win a final and this opens the door for European competitions.”
The striker has formed a formidable partnership with fellow attacker Rubo, helping propel Mons to the final of the cup while also scoring their fair share of goals in the league too. We asked the Argentinean striker about his partnership with the Spanish striker: “Since the start of the league there was always a great understanding he is a young player with a great heart, but better a great friend in and out of the pitch.
On a personal level, Pibe is still in the running for the Top Scorer award in the league; his 11 goals only better by Europa striker Enrique Carreno’s 12 striker this season. We asked the striker his thoughts on finishing top scorer, and his season so far: “Yes in the personal it’s a great year so far , that with my goals it’s helping the team reach the objectives, the way I am I will fight for everything and it’s not an obsession of finishing goal scorer, but if I can I would like to achieve that in a personal level.”
