One of those called up was 'el bebote' who, despite not having had a good tournament with Cruz Azul, Tata Martino decided to call him to be part of the players to be tested and have a chance to reach the World Cup.

During the Clausura 2022, the forward played 24 games between Liga MX and CONCACAF Champions League and only scored three goals and assisted on one occasion. The reality is that the striker's numbers are not extraordinary, but even so, the Argentine coach has faith in the forward.

With Juan Reynoso, he did not play as a starter and was always used as a change. In fact, different media claimed that there was a bad relationship between the Peruvian coach and the forward of La Máquina.

Will Diego Aguirre be able to boost Santiago Giménez?

With the arrival of Cruz Azul's new coach, Diego Aguirre, the Cementeros' directors hope that he will be able to improve the level of Santiago Giménez, who has undoubtedly shown great quality, however, in the last tournament he did not do well.

The 21-year-old player has already been champion with Cruz Azul, and the fans, as well as the directors, see the player as someone who can be a leader in the future and can contribute with many goals. The new Uruguayan coach will have the task of improving the striker and thus deliver better results as he does with the Mexican national team.
