In the last hour before the start of the tournament, Tigres lost Francisco Meza for the entire season after a severe injury, this situation made Miguel Herrera ask the felines to sign a central emergent character as soon as possible, placing the name by Ventura Alvarado on the UANL table.
Miguel considered the Mexican-American as the perfect man to fill the void of Meza while Carlos Salcedo returned from the Gold Cup and Hugo Ayala recovered from the Covid, in addition to being an old acquaintance of his in whom he trusted. However, this option has been completely ruled out, as the former central defender of America, has bypassed the feline project and has come up to Inter Miami.
Although economically the offers of both teams were similar, there are two factors that led Ventura to make the decision to go to MLS, in the first place, with the team from the south of the United States he will be the undisputed starter, while with the Tigers in some point would be resigned to the bank. Similarly, in case of maintaining a good level, Ventura will remain on the radar of his National Team, something that will not happen in the Liga Mx.
