Liga MX has been growing a lot during the last years and had the possibility to sign some top-talented players. Some world stars arrived to play to Mexican soccer, seduced by a country in which soccer attracts great passion and where they can obtain an economic benefit when comparing to many other places in the world.

One of the most remembered players to ever play in the Liga MX is Brazilian legend Ronaldinho, who arrived to Querétaro FC on September 2014. He signed as a free agent after leaving Atlético Mineiro, and helped the team to qualify to their first final of Liga MX during 2015. On July of that year, he left and returned to play to Brazil, where he signed for Fluminense.


Another remembered case was the one of Pep Guardiola, who landed in Mexico many years before being one of the best head coaches in the world. He was a player then and decided to return to play and traveled to Mexico to join Dorados de Sinaloa on January 2006. He could just play ten matches, in which he scored one goal and his team lost the category that year.
