European club soccer is back. Clubs are happy to have their players for the home stretch of their season but not all are happy in the condition they are coming back….
- Unfortunately, Nestor Araujo picked up an injury that will see him miss 2-3 weeks. Celta Vigo cannot be happy their starting center back picked up an injury in friendly.
- Hirving Lozano was coming off an injury and played all 180 minutes of El Tri over the international break. This included a start as the 9 which saw him get hacked down a lot. Napoli are probably not happy about any of that but at least he scored?
- A good thing that happened over the international break? Efrain Alvarez making his Mexico debut. FIFA rules are weird and fluid but by playing in this game, he is tied to Mexico for 3 years. Effectively, he has chosen Mexico over the US.
- Jesus Corona could be on the move this summer. His release clause is rumored to be at $30m but goes up to $47m in July. The club rumored to be after his services? Chelsea.
