Gonzalo Carneiro and Michael Estrada they still do not have the weight of the lethal striker they are looking for Machinebut it is expected that with more work and minutes they can exploit their qualities, although yes, it is contemplated to sign an element of greater weight to have that reference scorer with the cement fans.
Raul Gutierrez you have already analyzed the players that could be added to your scheme, for example Antonio Briseno; directed it with Under 17 in the 2011 World Cup and is totally trustworthy. Sebastian Perez Bouquet He is another of the players that the coach would have in his sights due to his quality, which could be taken up by El Potro, after the youth has lost prominence in Chivas.
