The Rebaño Sagrado has already beaten the Zorros in an aspect that no one expected: Alexis Vega has already won the Club Atlas vs. Chivas duel in numbers because he is already better than Julio Furch and the fans love him.
More news about Chivas:
The renewal of Vega's contract with the Rojiblancos has been a great boost for the player, who has finally imposed himself as the team's goal scorer this season and is the one who gives more depth to the Verde Valle's attack.
And according to the review of his contract, at least in terms of numbers, the Chivas player has already beaten the Atlas player, who started this tournament as the most sought-after striker by other clubs.
But as time went by, his goalscoring instinct was diluted and now, it is the Rojiblancos' striker who prevails.
Why has Alexis Vega already won the Club Atlas vs. Chivas duel in numbers?
In Liga MX 2022, Julio Furch scored 4 goals in 12 matches and provided 3 assists, while Vega managed to score 6 goals and provide 6 assists in 15 matches, including the one he scored in the playoff against Pumas UNAM.
There is another aspect in which Alexis Vega has already surpassed Julio Furch and that is the salary since the Atlas player receives a little more than 832 thousand dollars a year, and with his contract renewal, the Chivas player will receive $1.59 million at the end of 2022.
In this way, the Rebaño Sagrado striker has already beaten Zorro's striker, although there is now another aspect in which Vega has surpassed Furch.
While Furch is not recognized on the street, Vega is loved by Chivas fans
Despite having scored the goal that gave Atlas the title, Julio Furch is not recognized on the street, or at least that is what the Rojinegro player confessed in an interview with Mexican media.
The lethal striker of the current Mexican soccer champion confessed in an interview:
"Many people don't manage to recognize me, but they tell me 'ah you were the one who scored the goal, weren't you?'; yes well, we all were, that's what I try to tell them because it was an effort by all of us.
"People are very happy, crazy, every restaurant I go to gives me desserts, I don't know how many kilos I'm gaining, but they make me feel very good".
And while this may seem like a sample of his fame, it does not compare with that of Vega, a player who is now practically the face of Chivas, one of the most popular clubs in Mexico, and as a sample, a button.
In a tweet from Club Deportivo Guadalajara in which the player appeared, he generated more than 2,000 likes and now the press is looking for him and he is increasingly consolidating his position as the club's star player.
Even to promote the Chivas vs. Atlas duel in the Liguilla, TV stations put his face on the side of the Rebaño Sagrado, but to represent the Zorros, Furch's face is not used.
