Guillermo Ochoa returned to América for the 2019/2020 season after being away for 8 years on his European journey, where he played with teams such as Ajaccio, Málaga, Granada, and Standard de Liege. Since his return, he has not left the starting lineup and that affected one of his teammates, who arrived at the Águilas two years earlier.

As a result, rumors of possible additions and departures have spread throughout the institution. According to TUDN reporter Juan Carlos Cartagena, coach Ignacio Ambriz's priority is to sign a goalkeeper for Toluca. The list of candidates includes Óscar Jiménez, goalkeeper of Las Águilas, whose contract expires at the end of 2022.
Óscar Jiménez would arrive to a team in crisis
Should he join the Escarlatas, the Azulcremas' substitute goalkeeper will have a lot of work ahead of him: the Mexiquense team was the team that conceded the most goals in the Clausura 2022, with 36 goals in 17 games.
For now, the substitute goalkeeper and América are in their period of rest and analysis after having achieved a heroic qualification to the Liguilla directly (from last place to finish fourth in the regular phase). They now await Puebla in the quarterfinals, who will advance from the playoffs.
