Carlos "Gullit" Peña went through one of the best moments of his career at Club León, where he played from 2011 to 2017. There, he scored 52 goals in 188 games and won the Liga MX twice (2013 and 2014). After a short period at Glasgow Rangers of Scotland, the midfielder joined Cruz Azul in 2018.
However, he did not perform well at La Maquina. In part, his poor performance was due to the fact that he liked to go out at night and spend his money at parties. In total, the 30-year-old Footballer played ten games for the Mexican team and did not score any goals or give any assists.
Although he won 25 million pesos at Cruz Azul, he is close to running out of money. According to the newspaper Cancha, the soccer player no longer participates in the training session of the Club Veracruzano de Futbol Tiburón because the club owes him a lot of money.
Due to the crisis, the team coached by Gustavo Matosas could not afford the higher salaries of the squad. As a result, other soccer players such as Néstor Calderón and Jorge "Chatón" Enríquez stopped receiving their salaries. It seems that no player is willing to play without being paid.
