Marcelo Flores’ decision to leave Arsenal and move to Mexico with Tigres continues to be questioned, with many wondering why he has made the decision.
That continues on Fox Deportes today, with journalist Enrique Gomez wondering what the player’s motivations are for the move.
Flores as long been considered one of the potential stars of the future at Arsenal but is yet to live up to that reputation, especially during an unsuccessful loan spell at Real Oviedo last season.
They’ve now allowed him to depart on a permanent basis, with the midfielder electing to move to Tigres in Mexico in an €815,000 move.
Fox continue that, asking ‘what awaits the teenager’ at his new club, who have a history of trying to ‘repatriate promising young players’ but a mixed success rate at doing so.
They say there already ‘fears’ that the player could suffer a worst fate than previous attempts with Diego Lainez and Eugenio Pizzuto.
Each person and player is different, of course, but it’s debatable how many minutes that Flores will see after arriving from Arsenal with barely any minutes under his belt.
The belief is that he faces the prospect of featuring mostly as a substitute, which is fine “if he wants to show off from the bench” as he will be ‘paid very well to do so’. It would, though, be strange given he’s moved to Mexico in an effort to get his career back on track.
