Salcedo, who has also turned out for Real Salt Lake and Fiorentina, followed compatriot Marco Fabian to the Commerzbank-Arena last summer on a 12-month loan deal, and is loving life at the club and in the city.
“As a footballer, you live with the fact that there’s uncertainty,” the 24-year-old told Sport Bild. “But I can only say that I’d like to continue to play for Frankfurt. I think I came here with the right attitude. I want to learn everything in Frankfurt, absorb everything that’s offered to me, both in football and beyond.”
Watch: Salcedo settled quickly at Eintracht, as bundesliga.com found out at the club's media day last summer!
Salcedo has started 10 of Die Adler’s 18 Bundesliga games this season, coming off the bench a further three times, to form a constituent part of a defence that has only conceded 19 goals – a record second only to league leaders and champions Bayern Munich. It’s a foundation Salcedo thinks the club can build upon.
“We’re allowed to be ambitious,” he said. “I like to work hard in training and we have a coach [Niko Kovac] who exemplifies this. We have big goals and know we have to fight in every game. Everything has to come together, but we’re always looking to improve.”
