Having the Mexican club he knows best, Julián Álvarez, the forward sensation of the Argentine national team in the Qatar 2022 World Cup, did not stay with América, Chivas, Cruz Azul or Pumas UNAM.
Although he made it clear that he is aware that there are other very important institutions in Mexico’s top circuit, the Manchester City attacker said that he has known details about the Monterrey Football Club for a long time.
And the explanation he gave was very simple: Germán Martelotto, a player who came from the same town, stood out in an important way in Rayados.
WHAT IS THE MOST KNOWN MEXICAN CLUB FOR JULIÁN ÁLVAREZ?
“There are many Mexican soccer clubs that are very big, that are very beautiful, with a lot of history. But, well, I personally know a lot about Monterrey because a person (Germán Martellotto) from the same town, from Calchín, Córdoba, is an idol there in Monterrey. So, I’ve been hearing about them for a long time.” sentenced the former River Plate player, in an interview he gave to Diego Armando Medina for TUDN.
When there are so many international movements in a championship, this type of situation usually occurs. Julián Álvarez found out about Rayados because a player from his place of origin shone there, Arturo Vidal confirmed his sympathy for América due to the passing of Iván Zamorano and a world champion like Florian Thauvin was able to learn more about Tigres thanks to André Pierre-Gignac .
