Andre-Pierre Gignac's coat surprised everyone at the Liga MX women's final, which also happened to be from Louis Vuitton.

The soccer player wore the garment in the duel in which Monterrey was crowned against Tigres through penalty kicks. 

The coat unleashed madness on social networks as soon as it became known that it was a designer coat and, above all, because of the cost of the luxurious garment. 

The lethal Tigres striker proudly wore this garment, although at the end of the match many social media users made fun of the coat, saying that Gignac looked like the "Grinch". 

However, the mockery turned to surprise when the cost of the luxurious garment was revealed. 

How much does Gignac's coat cost?

According to the Mexican digital newspaper Mediotiempo, the striker's luxurious garment has a cost of 7,816 dollars.

An amount that does not imply a great expense for the player, due to what he earns as a professional soccer player. 

Although his team did not do well this year, as they were eliminated in the semifinals of the Liga MX, the French player has not ceased to be one of the most important elements of his club.

His eye for goal has allowed him to consolidate his position as one of the most lethal strikers to ever set foot on Aztec soil; as a result, his salary has allowed him to afford a Louis Vuitton coat. 

How much does Gignac earn in Liga MX?

According to information from ESPN, Andre Pierre-Gignac is the highest-paid player in Mexican soccer, earning a salary of 4.6 million dollars a year

An amount that may sound excessive, but illustrates the player's value, which is underpinned by his performances on the field. 

Since his arrival in Mexican soccer in 2015, the Martigues-born Frenchman has done whatever he wanted in Liga MX.

For example, he has taken home the Golden Ball for the best player in the league, won two scoring championships and was twice named the best striker in Liga MX.

In addition, he has been recognized as the best striker in CONCACAF, top scorer, and best player in the CONCACAF Champions League, and has been included in the league's Best XI on five occasions.

What was Gignac doing with his expensive coat at the Liga MX Women's Final?

The player went to support the Tigres women's team, a club that, like the men's team, has become one of the most dominant in the Mexican tournament. 

But the team was not as dominant as usual, as they lost the final to fierce rivals Monterrey in penalty kicks

The score ended 0-0 in regular time and it was necessary to go to penalty kicks. 

"Today we got our second star, here it is and we must not lose focus, we have a little time to prepare for next season," said Rebeca Bernal, Monterrey's defender, in a press conference that Rayados gave briefly. 

For the player and her coach, Eva Espejo, this was a very satisfying moment because not only did they win the tournament, but they did it at the home of their fiercest rival, Tigres. 

This is how the Liga MX women's league is gradually consolidating itself in Mexican soccer, giving women a chance to make a name for themselves in women's soccer worldwide.
