In the Liguilla, Cruz Azul is just realizing that it did everything to bring Iván Morales instead of Julio Furch, who charges less, scores more, and does not make the fans angry, as the Chilean does.
More news about Iván Morales:
In social networks and in the stands, it has become evident that Morales is not liked by Cruz Azul fans, since so far the Chilean has not performed as expected, since he arrived from Colo Colo with a goal scorer's reputation.
And throughout the tournament in the regular phase, Morales did not weigh on the scoreboard, so in the last rounds of the tournament it was common to see Morales always starting, but he was always replaced in the second half by Santiago Giménez.
As a result, the fans have lost their patience and from the stands have not stopped showing their annoyance with the player, and according to Mexican sports media, the board of directors is already looking for his replacement.
Cruz Azul did everything to bring Iván Morales instead of Julio Furch, who charges less, and scores more
At the time, the board of the Cementeros was forced to choose which player to get to replace Jonathan Rodríguez, who left for Saudi Arabia to play with Al-Nassr Riad of the Saudi Professional League.
With his departure, the directors of La Máquina looked for options to replace him and there were two clear options: Julio Furch and Iván Morales.
And because at that time Morales had a goal scorer's reputation and the team's directors decided to go for him, but now that the regular phase of the Clausura 2022 tournament has ended, the time has put things in their place.
And while Julio Furch is paid more than 832 thousand dollars a year and has scored 4 goals in the current tournament, Morales is paid 960 thousand dollars a year and so far has not managed to score a single goal in the tournament.
The information on their salaries was made public by the Mexican sports media, which also detailed that now that the tournament is nearing its end, La Máquina is once again looking for Julio Furch, but they are also after Germán Berterame.
Iván Morales has already angered Cruz Azul fans
In the first leg match between La Máquina and the Felinos in the Liguilla 2022, it could be seen that in a play in the first half in which Morales was supposed to make a wall, the player decided not to play as a team, which caused Cruz Azul fans to boo him in the middle of the game.
And this is not the first time this has happened, as social networks are already talking about how expensive the player is costing the club, and that he has failed to score a single goal.
