Jonathan Bornstein’s search for playing time will see him stay in Mexico. Just not with Tigres UANL.
Tigres announced late on Wednesday that it has loaned Bornstein to C.F. Atlante in a deal that could lead to the veteran left back earning consistent minutes for the first time in years. Bornstein has seen just 368 minutes in league play since transferring to Tigres back in January 2011 and did not make a single appearance for the club during the recently-concluded Apertura campaign.
The 29-year-old Bornstein has also struggled to see time for Tigres in other competitions. He played in just three Copa MX games during the past half-season and started a CONCACAF Champions League match earlier this year against the Seattle Sounders.
Atlante finished in second-to-last place in the 18-team Liga MX table in the Apertura. The Iron Colts open their Clausura campaign against defending champions Club Leon on Jan. 5.
What do you think of Tigres sending Bornstein on loan to Atlante? Do you see him finding consistent minutes there? Wish he would have returned to MLS?
