Returning to America was surely one of the most difficult decisions of Guillermo Memo Ochoa in his extensive and brilliant sports career. Just after getting a community passport, with a family of four and the quality of life that residing in Europe represents, the prodigal son wanted to go home.
And it's that where it's seen, Memo ended up being the winner in this negotiation. In 2019 he arrived at one of the most reinforced teams in the Liga MX, forced to be a protagonist and with the pressure of having to replace an Agustín Marchesín who was key in obtaining the last title in the institution.
At that time, the leadership of the Azulcrema club ended up convincing Memo with a juicy salary that broke precedents and made him the highest paid Mexican player in the history of the League, and very close to the salary that André-Pierre Gignac earns at Tigres UANL .
How much does Guillermo Memo Ochoa earn in America?
According to reports from the Belgian media Nieuwsblad, Ochoa will earn 4.5 million dollars a year (88 million Mexican pesos), committing himself for three and a half years with the capital club.
Is Guillermo Ochoa leaving America?
In recent days, information began to circulate that Memo Ochoa was wanted by several MLS teams. And although it was not confirmed by the goalkeeper, the information was not denied either and it's something that increased the rumors of departure from the current team that Santiago Solari trains.
