Immediately, the collaborator of ESPN, David faitelson, took advantage of the news to give his opinion on the passage of Peralta by the club. “What about Oribe Peralta, respectfully, It must be the worst hiring in Chivas history… We will have to ‘congratulate’ José Luis Higuera … “, wrote the journalist in his account of Twitter.
Likewise, your partner Leon Lecanda provided a piece of information that can be used to confirm Faitelson’s words. “Each Oribe Peralta goal in Liga MX cost Chivas about $ 6.25 million (more or less 132.5 million pesos), which he received in his 2.5-year period at the club. Alluding to the poor performance of the striker, who was only able to shake the nets twice (with 33 games played), one goal in the League (from a penalty kick) and another in the Copa MX.
The hiring of Oribe caused much controversy in Mexican soccer, as the forward came from the staunch rival of Guadalajara. Yes, before wearing the Chivas uniform, Peralta defended the shield of the America, a team with which he managed to lift the Liga MX and a Copa MX on two occasions.
His signing was highly criticized by fans, some cataloged it as a panic purchase, others gave him the benefit of the doubt, but in the end, time proved those who were wary of signing him right. There is little comparison, but with the eagles he achieved 60 goals in 182 games, while with Chivas he barely scored twice in 28 matches (counting friendlies).
“That Oribe Peralta is the one who wins the most in the club, it can’t be! That’s why Chivas is the way it is... ”said a fan on twitter.

At the time, Oribe Peralta was the best striker in Mexican soccer. When he was with Santos he was a key figure to obtain a championship, with America he also did the same. Not to mention the Mexican team, where he scored the goals that gave him the gold Olympic to Mexico in 2012, or a goal of his in the World Cup 2014 in view of Cameroon. However, it seems that his young years are behind him, he is now a veteran on the circuit and his future is a mystery. No team has been linked for the next season.
