Necaxa’s Bombshell

The Thunderbolts no longer think about salvation, they want to be the champions

The team from Aguascalientes is already preparing for its next campaign, no longer willing to scrape by, and is aiming for higher positions within the league.

And for this reason, one of the biggest stars in South American soccer has touched down on Necaxan soil. Jonathan Álvarez is in his prime at 28 and is a native of Uruguay.

He arrives from the Ecuadorian league where he placed for the Barcelona Sporting Club. There, he was the club’s leading goalscorer with 20 goals and many assists.

It is hoped Álvarez makes the same impact for the team that the signings of Edson Puch and Marcelo Barovero did last season.

In the absence of official confirmation, Álvarez looks set to become the second recent arrival for The Thunderbolts, after the arrival of Chilean player Nicolás Maturana.

Álvarez’s arrival suggests exits from the club, as Necaxa currently has 12 foreign players in their ranks. When the Uruguayan arrives the tally will climb to 13. But with the 10/8 regulation — which indicates that there can be a maximum of 10 foreign players and 8 Mexican players on every match selection — and the fact that Necaxa will pay around two million dollars for the player, they are unlikely to be content with keeping him out of selection. Therefore, it is likely others will leave.
