André-Pierre Gignac arrived in Mexico in 2015 to join Liga MX side Tigres UANL and since then he hasn’t stopped scoring goals and winning titles. The 35-year-old has become the top scorer in the history of Tigres surpassing Tomas Boy (139) who held the record for many years. Gignac is in the talks of being the best striker in the history of the Liga MX and his numbers speak for himself.
