In a very attentive manner, Lainez gave his first photos with the fans and then spoke briefly to the media. In his first words, the 22-year-old soccer player was happy and excited to return to Liga MX, a competition in which he has not played since 2019 when he was a member of the Águilas del América.

What he said about the move

“Very happy, very happy, excited about the project that exists, I’m very committed to the team, happy and hopefully soon I will be working on what I want the most,” he said.

Lainez, who will first undergo medical examinations, will become a player of the university team on a one-year loan with a mandatory purchase option and a contract for three more years.

The Feline target

The Tigres project is an interesting project, they have always shown interest from Mauricio (Culebro), I have known him for a long time and they have always been there with interest since I practically left for Europe; I’m very happy to be back.”
