The Liga MX is full of talented players currently and when a young upcoming player gets glorified at an early stage in their career it is important to follow those young players to see them progress throughout the next few years.
Let us get down to it and just talk about Chivas young player, midfielder Fernando Beltran who made his debut under Matias Almeyda on July 22, 2017, versus Toluca and has quickly made a name for himself as his abilities, are widely known inside the field. Although with the ups and downs, Beltran has had since his debut due to coaching changes to the team, the prolific midfielder has made it clear that he owns the entire field as he is useful in the defensive side and also becomes a creator in the offensive side of the field as well.
The 21-year-old has been categorized by Matias Almeyda as one of the top Liga MX players in the league, as the San Jose Earthquakes coach went on ESPN, ‘Ahora o Unca’ and said the following,
“Pizarro was the best player in Liga MX but today, it is Beltrán. Gignac has all the honors, but I would keep this young man, Beltrán. He plays football perfectly.”
A strong testament Almeyda stated and he could not be wrong as prior to the pause of the Clausura 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Beltran was one of the few young players under the age of 21 that had started all 10 games, played a total of 824 minutes with 2 goals registered under his name. Big numbers as it was clear that Chivas going into the Clausura 2020 they spent a well invested a well over $50 million on new player signings that could have left the youngster ride the bench but Luis Fernando Tena awarded Beltran with the full trust and it has shown on the field.
Lastly, Beltran has made the jump in being part of the national team of Mexico, as he was placed with the Under-23 roster, for now, postponement of 2020 Olympics that would take place next summer due to the pandemic ongoing. Hopefully, Beltran continues to excel with Chivas and hopefully soon be incorporated with the senior team of Mexico.
