Goalkeeper Óscar Jiménez from Club América has not had the best results in the cream-blue cabin, which is why aims to be a bench in the next match reason for which Luis Malagón would make his debut starting goalkeeper in the match of Day 11 of the Clausura 2023 of the Liga MX.
The match in question would be against Tigres de la UANL, and according to information released by journalist Julio Ibáñez from TUDN, the idea of the coaching staff was to give Jiménez one last chance, opportunity that was not taken advantage of because he conceded three goals in the defeat against Pachuca at the Azteca Stadium.
The mistakes made by the goalkeeper, and all the criticism made by the fans of the cream-blue team, mean that Fernando ‘Tano’ Ortiz made a decision against Óscar Jiménez, who would remain on the substitute bench.
“I will analyze it cold, the fans have every right to express themselves however they want, I am the coach, but rather someone come to direct. I am calm, I know the decisions I have to make and I will see what is best for the team and the institution”, said the Argentine coach after the fall that meant losing the undefeated during the Clausura 2023 of the Liga MX.
The goal Jimenez has 23 goals conceded with the Eagles since 2019 in 23 games in Liga MX, Furthermore, in the Copa MX had 7 goals in 8 games and in international tournaments 8 goals in 6 games. As a result, the goalkeeper leaves a total balance of 38 goals conceded in 37 games played.
Only time will tell us if ‘Tano’ Ortiz will leave Jiménez on the bench and if Malagón will take responsibility for covering the goal in the best possible way during the next match against the André Pierre Gignac’s Tigers on Saturday, March 11.
