The decision to dissolve the Cruz Azul Hidalgo team was not an easy one; however, the leadership of the Cementera is convinced that the Fuerzas Básicas must return to their origins in order to shine once again in the First Division, just as they did in the glorious era of the seventies. Despite the complicated economic situation faced by most Liga MX teams.

 

 

Cruz Azul managed to maintain the base of the team that won the ninth star, but is already thinking more about the future.For this reason, during the preseason that began in Avándaro, Valle de Bravo, Juan Reynoso had the presence of eight players trained in Cruz Azul's youth divisions:  Alfredo Cabañas, Rodrigo Huescas, Rafael Guerrero, Christopher Benítez, Christian Jiménez, Antonio Álvarez, Pedro Pacheco and Said Morales, who have worked under the Peruvian tactician's watchful eye, with the intention of earning a place in the first team.

 

 

Rodrigo Huescas was the Apertura 2018 scoring champion with 13 goals, was already part of the Tri youth national teams and was even compared with a Spanish soccer glory like Fernando Torres. He was also defined by sources close to this media outlet as a "perfect false nine" due to his ability to play all over the attacking front with great dynamism.

 

 

Although the news of Luis Ángel Mendoza's incorporation to the Celeste Club was more than known, the team had not officially announced it until Thursday: "Look surprised with the following news. We already know that you already knew, but we have to make it official. Welcome to La Máquina, Luis Mendoza!", announced the cementero team through its social networks.

 


For the moment, Cruz Azul only has Luis Ángel as its reinforcement, while accumulating two official departures. Elías Hernández and Misael Domínguez. The Quick, arrived to the cementeros under the table and after an apparently normal day. The former Mazatlán midfielder showed off his light blue kit during a training session in the middle of the preseason. In fact, he scored the second goal with which Cruz Azul defeated Pachuca in a preparatory match. However, this match was not broadcast and it was not possible to see the first minutes of this player.
