Veljko Paunovic, coach of Chivas de Guadalajara, would have an alternative within his squad after Pumas’s refusal to part with Palermo Ortíz and the unsuccessful deal with Tijuana for Toro Guzmán.
The technical director of Chivas de Guadalajara, Veljko Paunovic, would have an ace up his sleeve by presenting an alternative within his squad after the refusal to reinforce the defense in this pass market for the Closing Tournament 2023 of Liga MX, after Pumas UNAM will avoid parting with Arturo Ortíz and Tijuana frustrating the deal for the promising Víctor Guzmán.
The main squad of the Sacred Flock, under the command of the Serbian coach, trains this Monday at the facilities of the sports city of Verde Valle, to refine the details of their next presentation against Atlas on the last date of Group B of the Sky Cup 2022 and continue with the summit stage of the extensive preseason, to the debut against Rayados de Monterrey at the BBVA Stadium, corresponding to Matchday 1 of the Clausura 2023.
Paunovic, along with his international coaching staff, carried out an in-depth analysis of his stellar squad this preseason and evaluated the possibility of reinforcing each of the lines, although one of the positions that it intends to shield is the central defense. In this sense, The sports board led by Fernando Hierro pointed several days ago to the incorporation of Arturo Ortíz and the BullVictor Guzman.
The response that Chivas received in the transfer market negotiations was not as expected, since the Pumas de la UNAM would not have the intention of getting rid of one of their best players, so the operation was unfeasible. While Tijuana, with whom they negotiated an exchange for the promising defender Víctor Guzmán and who included the pass of Ángel Zaldívar, in addition to an economic contribution, it did not prosper either and was frustrated after sending the left-handed striker to Atlético de San Luis.
Fernando Hierro and his team, in this sense, would insist on the idea of hiring a center back. However, Veljko Paunovic would have also proposed an alternative within the Guadalajara institution. According to the information provided by the reporter for Rebaño Pasión, León Iturbide, the Serbian strategist is pleased with the performance, dedication, commitment and level that he has shown in this preseason: Antonio Briseño.
The Chicken Briseño, it should be remembered, has a current contract with Chivas until June 2023, but his future has not yet been resolved, which will be defined in the coming days and would be renewed or would go to another club interested in this market after its performance in the preseason. If you don’t follow, Paunovic would give the opportunity to promote Diego Campillo, trained in the Basic Forces of Verde Valle. The 21-year-old central defender has impressed the coaching staff with his performances in the Sky Cup in preparation for Clausura 2023. Although, everything indicates that the Serbian would impose the renewal of Briseño.
