The club announced on Friday that French midfielder Florian Tovín will join his fellow striker André Pierre Guignac and will become the new Tigres player in the 2021 Mexican League Championship.
The 28-year-old Thauvin disembarked from the Olympique de Marseille (Olympique de Marseille), where he spent the last four years of his career.
Tigres did not disclose the financial details of the player’s agreement, but the French newspaper “L’Equipe” confirmed that it has agreed to it for five years.
Thauvin made his debut in Grenoble in his country in 2010, then entered the ranks of SC Bastia, Newcastle United, and competed with Olympique Marseille (Olympique Marseille). ) There are three stages.
After playing with an age-restricted team, he was a member of the French team, which won the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Tao Fen became the third player to win the sphere championship and compete with the Tigers. Prior to this, Edú in Brazil (Mexico 1970) and Sergio Almirón in Argentina (Mexico 1986).
This is the most media-significant signing since Gignac came to Mexico in 2015. The striker and former Frenchman was surprised to sign with Tigres, where he shined to consolidate his historical scorer.
Tigres has tried to replicate his success at Gignac by signing French striker Andy Delote (Clausula in 2016) in the past, but the player only scored 3 goals a year later. The ball left. The college student later hired Timothée Kolodziejczak (Apertura 2017), but he also had no money and left the team.
Another Mexican team that failed to bet on the French market was the American Jérémy Ménez, who arrived in Clausura in 2018 and left after only 18 games a year later.
After Brazil’s Ricardo Ferretti announced his departure and the Tigres leadership was looking for a new coach, Thauvin’s arrival changed. The latter led them to five league titles and in the Copa Libertadores. (2015) and the World Cup Football Club (2021) and minor tournaments.
If the team wins Clausura in 2021, Ferretti can still win another championship before leaving. Tigres will play the playoffs with Atlas this weekend.
The day before, Ferretti declined to comment on the rumors of Thauvin’s arrival because he promised that he did not ask for it and would not direct it.
Tigres represents the Autonomous University of Nuevo Leon (UANL) and works in the northern city of Monterrey, but is operated by CEMEX, a multinational company in the construction industry, which has more than 300 production sites in France.
