America had a season full of ups and downs. It is difficult to take stock of the performance of the Azulcremas in the Clausura 2022 of Liga MX. The team was in the basement until Fernando Ortiz arrived to take the reins of the team. Under the direction of ‘Tano’, the Eagles reacted and qualified directly for the league. However, the Coapa team was clearly surpassed by Pachuca in the semifinals.
The Eagles have gone almost four years without winning the Liga MX title, which is why the fans are upset with the board and the team. Criticism against Santiago Baños, sports president of the azulcrema team, is accentuated more as the days go by and the followers request changes in the background for the following season. In this context, these are six players from América who could leave the squad for the 2022 Apertura:
America’s substitute goalkeeper has lived in the shadow of Guillermo Ochoa and Agustín Marchesín. Jiménez has the ability to compete for starting positions in other squads and his contract is about to come to an end. There would be several teams interested.
The Colombian has been a real disaster in America. Otero arrived from Santos Laguna without doing much merit. With the Eagles he has had few opportunities and has not counted for Santiago Solari or Fernando Ortiz. One of the worst hires in years.
No one can criticize the dedication and sacrifice of the eldest of the Lainez. However, these characteristics have not reached the extreme to establish himself as a starter in the Nest and he would be close to leaving the institution.
The defender arrived at America on loan after a lack of central defenders. Silva delivered on the field while he was required, but it will be difficult for him to continue with the Eagles next season. The soccer player would return to Tijuana.
Bruno Valdez has not been able to be the central defender that America needs. Despite his great characteristics and leadership, it seems that the Paraguayan defender’s journey with the Eagles has come to an end.
The cycle of Henry Martín in America seems to have come to an end. The striker has not lived up to expectations in recent tournaments and his goalscoring contribution is poor. Martín can find opportunities in other Liga MX teams.
