Players who were expected to contribute goals, assists, solid defense, but rather they passed by without many remembering them
The end of the third era of Ricardo Ferretti with Tigres is approaching and since their arrival at the Apertura 2010 to date the club has made different signings and several of them have been left behind despite the high expectations with which they arrived.
Given this, some hires that went through the felines without much success are listed:
The French defender arrived with high expectations as a reinforcement of Tigres for the Apertura 2017, but his participation was practically nil. He played six games and the following year he went on loan to Saint Etienne in his country, which later made the purchase option valid for the player.
After passing through Cruz Azul, with which he featured for his scoring ability, and discreetly passing through Pumas, for the Clausura 2013 the striker arrived at Tigres, where he scored three goals against Jaguares and later the injuries marginalized him, he went to less and only lasted a year with the UANL team.
Emanuel “Tanque” Herrera
Coming from Montpellier in France, the Argentine striker arrived at Tigres in 2014, participated in Copa MX matches, where he had an acceptable performance, but in the top circuit he could do little, scored six goals in 17 matches and ended up leaving the team to go to Emelec in Ecuador.
In the Clausura 2012, the player came to Tigres to try to replace Danilo Verón “Danilinho”, but his success was little, he was until the Clausura 2013 with the team with which he achieved only four annotations, to later emigrate to León, with the one that remained five years and later it was transferred to Cruz Azul.
With the firm objective of making a duo with Alan Pulido, the Argentine forward joined the UANL in the 2014 Apertura as reinforcement after his time in European football after he played for teams like Villarreal and Evian, but he could do little since he scored a goal in 10 matches, so it became another of the disappointments of the felines under the command of Ricardo Ferretti.
One more of the attackers who disappointed in his arrival at Tigres as reinforcement was the Spaniard, who achieved five annotations in 28 games, two of them against Cruz Azul in his debut, but did not transcend and ended up returning to Zaragoza of Spain.
Hoping to reach a similar level to his compatriot André-Pierre Gignac, the forward joined the team in 2017, but played nine games in which he scored three goals and left Tigres to emigrate to Toulouse in 2017.
The Nigerian arrived as a reinforcement in 2015, in which the felines played the Copa Libertadores in which they lost the final against River Plate. The player, who arrived from Villarreal in Spain, was injured and only scored one goal in the Apertura while passing through the felines.
For 2012, another of the great disappointments was hired under the command of Ricardo Ferretti and it was the Brazilian striker, who was with the team for a short time, played 22 games in which he scored four goals. After that he emigrated to Japanese soccer.
The Brazilian midfielder was another of the hiring that remained due, by virtue of the fact that he joined the team in El Apertura 2010, he remained two tournaments in which he only played 685 minutes, due to the injuries that afflicted him and ended up leaving the squad .
