Leo Fernández has not had the expected minutes since he arrived at Tigres de la UANL. The 22-year-old Uruguayan midfielder had a great performance in Liga MX while on loan in Toluca. However, in the feline group it practically did not count for Ricardo Ferretti and it is not being considered in the Miguel Herrera process either.
The talented Uruguayan midfielder has not played a minute in the first minutes of the Grita México 2021 tournament. Fernández did not play in the victory against Xolos de Tijuana or in the defeat against the Red Devils. The lack of activity of the charrúa would be generating a bad atmosphere in the dressing room of Tigres.
According to information from reporter Miguel Arizpe, the relationship between ‘Piojo’ Herrera and Leo Fernández is tense. “Before he was criticized because he did not get into Leo Fernández, they saw him as stubbornness and now neither in the absence of headlines or with five changes, ‘Piojo’ does not put him either,” Arizpe said in his column.
According to this report, the discontent of the Uruguayan footballer would be impacting the team’s spirit. “Things are not very good in that aspect in the dressing room. Leo wants to play, he is not happy, but not even with Miguel he has a place in the starting box. Nor will he have it. ‘Tuca’ was not wrong. In that of Leo he was right “.
Leo Fernández has played only 1,144 minutes spread over 25 games with Tigres. In his journey as a feline player, he has scored a couple of goals and given four assists. In contrast, with Toluca he played 943 minutes in 14 games. As a footballer for the Red Devils, he scored eight goals and provided three assists.
During the preseason, Miguel Herrera considered the departure of Leo Fernández. However, in the end it was determined that the former player from the University of Chile and Toluca would play the Grita Mexico 2021 tournament with the felines.
