The Tigers announce the departure of Florian Thauvin!

What’s next after this ad

In 2021, Florian Thauvin had chosen not to extend his contract with Olympique de Marseille to go and live a new experience abroad. Like André-Pierre Gignac, the attacking midfielder had chosen Mexico and the Monterrey Tigers. A choice of life, but also financial since “Flotov” had become the highest paid player in the Liga MX.

Except that the adventure across the Atlantic did not go as planned. With 8 goals and 5 assists in 38 matches in all competitions, Thauvin hasn’t really lived up to the huge expectations placed on him. And it was a point in the regulations of the Mexican championship that sealed his fate. Announced on the departure, Thauvin has just been released from his contract by his club.

To explain this sudden departure, in addition to the disappointing performances of the Frenchman, it was the recruitment of the Argentine striker Nico Ibáñez who started it all. The Tigers had to release a foreign player because he had filled his quota of places authorized for foreign players (10 in all). He therefore had to part with a non-Mexican player to register his new recruit. And it was Thauvin who therefore paid the price.
