The left-footed forward returns home after being loaned out to Puebla and Monterrey for a year in what now will be a battle for the starting positions at the top of the field for Chivas.
Forward Angel Zaldivar makes his way back to Chivas after spending an entire year with Rayados de Monterrey seeing little action as well with Puebla, where the left-footed forward did not shine as he did with Chivas in the past tournaments. On Friday, Zaldivar appeared in Verde Valle, Chivas practice facility taking measures by the medical doctors due to the control of the COVID-19, what it made clear that coach Tena will have various weapons in the attacking side of the field.
In the first stage of Zaldivar’s career with Chivas, the fury forward scored over 28 goals playing over 120 competitive games, making him one of the top players that Chivas had produced in recent years. Recently, Zaldivar made his first comments via ChivasTV and explained how he was waiting to return to Chivas where he had his most success in his career.
“I have been waiting for this for a long time, it was my priority to come back and for you to see this transformation on and off the field. I feel at my best, I want those glory years to return to continue, I am a winner and a positive leader who seeks individual and collective achievements!”
With the return of Zaldivar to Chivas, large speculations have started to swirl that plays in effect due to the possible exit of Jose Juan Macias to the European continent, as it has been explained by the sporting director, Ricardo Pelaez. Adding Zaldivar to the roster will be interesting to see how the Oribe Peralta, Alexis Vega, and Ronaldo Cisneros could possibly lineup for the upcoming Apertura 2020, making them a lethal threat in scoring goals for the team.
One thing is for certain, Chivas will be an interesting team to be aware of once the Liga MX restarts towards the end of the summer.
