On February 27, a historic moment was experienced with the presence of three Mexicans in The Great Derby from the capital of Andalusia. Newcomer Crown Tecatito and the Betis Diego Lainez and Andres Guardado they faced each other. Only Corona would finally have minutes in a game that ended with a victory for Sevilla F.C.but in which the increasing interest that Mexican soccer arouses among European and Spanish clubs in general and Sevillian clubs in particular was clear.
Monchi already spoke long ago in Mexico that the MX League It is a championship that he has incorporated into his scouting and that he follows closely. And Antonio Cordón has already shown it on occasion with players who have come from Mexican lands. In fact, the former Getafense José Juan Macías, Sebastián Córdova or Johan Vásquez They have been related to one of the two Sevillian clubs in recent years. And now the one who was a great star of Mexico in the last Olympic Games is back: Alexis Vega.
The forward of the Chivas from Guadalajara The contract ends in December of this year, it has not been renewed and the Mexican press has been talking in recent days that the ‘Sacred Flock’ would attempt a sale in the European summer market before it left for free. In fact, as published, they are already looking for a substitute for the next Opening 2022.
The player, key to the Mexican team achieving the bronze medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games by scoring three of the six goals for the Mexican team and providing two assists, has recently participated in Mexico’s qualification for the Qatar World Cup 2022 and playing on it would be his immediate goal. “It was a complicated qualifying round, we knew that this was how the qualifying matches would be, but the objective was achieved, which was to qualify directly and then, happy with the result. Now we have to work twice as hard, because we know that there is little time left to win a place in the World Cup and we have to continue working in the same way”, he pointed out on his return. That is the hope that Chivas has left, that the soccer player prioritizes continuing in a team where he is a starter before looking for a way out; although also, Vega has a contract until December and could wait, play in the World Cup and make the jump to Europe, as he supposedly intends.
That is where the option of the Sevillian clubs would come in.
