Leonardo Fernández is shining in Toluca at the start of the Clausura 2020, a player who Tigers hobby claims the club for lending it when the team is missing goal and someone with those characteristics.
The offensive midfielder has three goals and two assists on four dates, more than the entire feline squad that barely adds two scores and with Jordan Sierra as the only one who has put a goal pass with the royals.
Leo could have stayed with the UANL team since last summer when he joined the club preseason in the Riviera Maya and although he filled the eye of Ricardo Ferretti, who tested it even with the headlines, the DT and the board decided to lend it to the lack of place for him to play, because on offense they had Javier Aquino, Jürgen Damm, Lucas Zelarayán, Enner Valencia, Eduardo Vargas, Luis Quiñones and André-Pierre Gignac.
So your pilgrimage
Thus He went to the U of Chile in summer after his participation in the Pan American Games, where he was a figure. In the Andean country it was only six months, and although he only played seven games, he immediately highlighted and closed the semester with one goal, two assists and hit in the free throws, but with the eight million clause they were unable to retain it.
Leo had to “report” with Tigers in December to define his future and there was an analysis of whether any borrowed item could be incorporated into the campus as reinforcement for the C2020, as was the case with Jordan Sierra; Nevertheless, Tuca told him again that ‘no’.
In the opinion of the Bigotón, the establishment was still complete with the same list of names already mentioned, it only changed with the incorporation of Nicolás López, a man who tied from September for the departure of Lucas Zelarayán to the MLS, so they decided to merge into Mexican football with the opportunity that was in Toluca.
The questionable thing is that continue to maintain confidence in elements such as Enner Valencia and Eduardo Vargas that are far from their level; the first does not score since April 2019 and the second since October, while Aquino remains without competition in the left wing and the hope is the return of Julián Quiñones, who was operated in July of the right knee and barely rejoined the group work.
With Toluca you are on loan for one year without a purchase option, with the opportunity to finish it in six months, depending on what they think would be best for the club or the player, who has shown a lethal left-handed and is shown as a different and unbalanced element to the Devils offensive.
The good step of the Uruguayan takes place in a bad moment of the Auriazules, whom they criticize for not having kept it in the squad this semester, especially since there were no more reinforcements apart from Nico and Sierra, and they looked for players like Sebastián Villa (Boca Juniors), Franco Cervi (Benfica), Pione Sisto (Celta) and Andrés Ibargüen (America), something they could Avoid since December.
The truth is that if Leo had stayed there would have been no criticism for lending it, but it seems unlikely that he was shining with the whole of the UANL as he does with the scarlets, because by the style of Ferretti, who respects hierarchies, it was hardly incumbent With the Regiomontans.
