Thiago Volpi, who played with Querétaro and was with Sao Paulo of Brazil, will return to Mexico but will do so with Toluca. This goalkeeper of great quality could have been an option for Pumas UNAM, which leaves a huge hole with the departure of Talavera and that is why the Pedregal club will have to look for a replacement to defend the goal as Talavera did in his time.

Volpi returns to Mexico

Toluca officially announced the arrival of Tiago Volpi as its first reinforcement for the Apertura 2022. Through a press release, the Diablos announced the news and welcomed the Brazilian goalkeeper, who will be living his second experience in Liga MX.

He came from Sao Paulo and the Escarlatas paid close to US$1.5 million for his services after the goalkeeper lost his first-team place in the Brazilian team.

Volpi already has experience in Mexican soccer, as he played for Querétaro from 2015 to 2018, a team with which he won the Copa MX in 2016 and the Supercopa MX in 2017, just before being signed by Sao Paulo FC.

The South American player made his professional debut with Sao José of Brazil in 2010 and from 2012 to 2015 played for Figueirense F.C.

In this way, Volpi became Ignacio Ambriz's first reinforcement for the Apertura 2022 so that both 'Nacho' and the team can reverse the sporting situation in which the team finds itself, which has just paid a fine of 33 million pesos for occupying the second to last place in the quotient table.
