Rayados de Monterrey have signed midfielder Jordi Cortizo from Membership Puebla, forward of the 2023 Liga MX Clausura.
He joins the Guadalajara staff on a four-season contract, based on Diego Armando Medina of TUDN.
“I’ve been delighted because the alternative to return right here was given, I at all times knew that I needed to make a leap to those large leagues with one of many greatest golf equipment in Mexico,” Cortizo mentioned of his switch.
Cortizo kicked off his skilled profession with Queretaro in 2017, recording 4 objectives in 76 appearances over the course of three years earlier than seeing stints with Tijuana and Puebla. He managed properly in Liga MX, but it surely wasn’t till the 2022 Apertura that he grew to become a standout.
The offensive midfielder recorded 5 objectives in 20 general matches to encourage Puebla to eighth on the desk and the Liguilla quarterfinals.
General, Cortizo has 12 objectives in 149 Liga MX appearances.
“They’ll see a participant who at all times tries, that may by no means fail, who will go for the ball, will attempt to play, suggest offensive play, go ahead and who will at all times give himself up for the membership. It’s my dream to be champion of the Liga MX, there isn’t a higher choice at the moment than to be sitting right here and with this squad to attain it,” he mentioned.
Cortizo stands as the primary signing below new Monterrey president Jose Antonio Noriega, who changed Duilio Davino following the staff’s elimination from the 2022 Apertura. Upon his arrival, Noriega insisted he wanted to judge the staff’s wants earlier than making drastic modifications.
However the arrival of Jordi Cortizo will now set off the a number of strikes already deliberate.
The 2023 Liga MX Clausura kicks off on January 6.
