Matías Almeyda's gratitude to ChivasThe coach didn't forget his time at the Rebaño Sagrado
Matías Jesús Almeyda left a mark on Chivas. With a unique style, El Pelado won five titles with the Guadalajara entity: a Liga MX, two Copa de México, a Mexican Super Cup and a Concachampions. In this squad, there was a player who stood out above all: Javier Eduardo López. Now, several years later, they met again in Major League Soccer (MLS).
Returning to meet again, as in his young years in Chivas, Mexican midfielder Javier Eduardo López became a signing for San José Earthquakes, in Major League Soccer (MLS), to meet with the coach who had his best performance, Argentine Matías Jesús Almeyda.
In fact, in conversation with ESPN, he took the opportunity to publicly thank Rebaño Sagrado for allowing him the loan of the Chofis for the entire 2021 season, taking into account that his current team does not have the great resources to buy his token.
"I'm grateful to Chivas because they have lent to Chofis, who almost came free. We have not made large purchases and we try to rescue players who have come from other places," said Almeyda.
Although in the first game of the 2021 season, in the loss to Houston Dynamo, the midfielder started and played 60 minutes, Pelado is emphatic in pointing out that, although he knows the player, he is not assured of his place in the eleventh headline.
