Florian Thauvin is the most media hiring of Tigres and the entire MX League for the Grita Mexico 2021 tournament. The French attacker, world champion in 2018, came to Mexican soccer with very high expectations, but his performance after the first dates of the tournament has much left to owe.
Before making his debut in Liga MX, Thauvin had shown that he was not in good shape after his participation in the Olympic Games. In the Olympic fair, the French footballer was out of rhythm, clumsy and not very decisive in the plays. The Tigres hiring bomb has not been able to show off.
On matchday 3 of Grita México 2021, Thauvin started as a starter against Santos Laguna and saw a direct red card at minute 35 for a clumsy and violent tackle. The start of the former Olympique de Marseille player has not been as expected by the feline fans. In this context, Thauvin came out to offer a message to the followers of Tigres.
Through social networks, the French footballer came out to apologize to the fans after his red card against the Warriors. “I wanted to apologize for this clumsy gesture. I would have preferred it to be better tonight, unfortunately it is. You have to learn from mistakes and move on,” said the reinforcement of Tigres on Twitter.
The feline fans have been unhappy with the performance of their squad during the first games of the season. Tigres has collected four points out of 9 available in the first three dates. As if that were not enough, the team was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Leagues Cup against the Seattle Sounders.
Some fans have been disappointed by the handling of the team by Miguel Herrera and even miss his predecessor: Ricardo ‘Tuca’ Ferretti.
For some sector of the stands, the ‘Piojo’ is not technical for the UANL team and the team is too big for him. The first results of Miguel Herrera have not been those expected by the fans, which cast doubt on the ability of their strategist.
