rumors suggest that theVenezuela international didn’t want to arrive in Liga MX, which is why it took that long to convince him to agree to the trade but given that Soteldo knew that he didn’t have room in Toronto after they acquired Lorenzo Insigne, he decided that Tigres was his best option to continue his career.

And just six days after arriving in UANL, Yeferson Soteldo had his first minutes wearing Tigres colors, in the match against Mazatlán FC, where he jumped in the pitch at 80’ and helped Los Felinos to make up lost ground that led to the 4-2 victory.

He arrived in Tigres as competition for Florian Thauvin

When Florian Thauvin signed with Tigres, he arrived in Mexico with the highest expectations, given that he was part of the champion France National Team in 2018 FIFA World Cup and still on his prime, but so far, he’s had a hard time adapting to Liga MX, which is why Miguel Herrera decided to sign Soteldo, so he can compete with Thauvin for the starting role.
