Michael Orozco looks to be making a switch to yet another Liga MX club.
Ruben Omar Romano, the manager of Club Tijuana, has stated that Orozco is now a member of the Xolos. While there has been no official announcement of the signing, the U.S. Men’s National Team defender has reportedly been transferred from Chiapas to Tijuana for a fee that is upwards of three million dollars.
Orozco, who helps fill the Xolos’ American void left by Greg Garza and Joe Corona, had been on loan at Puebla since 2013. He made 57 appearances and scored once for the Sweet Potatoers.
The 29-year-old centerback was recently included in the U.S.’s 35-man preliminary CONCACAF Gold Cup roster. He made his way onto the pitch in the recent friendly victories against the Netherlands and Germany.
What do you think about Orozco reportedly joining Tijuana? How do you see him doing there? Was another American needed at Xolos after the departures of Garza and Corona?
