Frenchman André-Pierre Gignac arrived at Tigres in 2015 and since then he has become one of the most important players on the team. The striker also won the love of the supporters thanks to his goals. However, the Frenchman will turn 35 years old on December 5 and his retirement is getting closer and closer.
There is a lot of speculation about what Gignac will do after finishing his career as a football player. It is believed that the former Olympique de Marsella player will stay in Mexico because he has become very fond of the country in recent years. However, he is also likely to return to his native France.
After being beaten 3-1 by America in the penultimate week of the Liga MX, Gignac gave clues about which profession he will choose after his retirement. At the next day's training, the Mexican club's official account uploaded a curious picture of him on his official twitter account. Will he stay at the club as coach?
Since his arrival in Tigres, Gignac has scored 136 goals and given 31 assists in 229 games.In addition, he won several titles: the Liga MX four times (2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019), and the Campeón de Campeones three times (2016, 2017 and 2018). He also achieved individual awards such as the best striker in the Liga MX in 2016 and 2019.
