Best Mexican players in La Liga

Mexico has been producing some of the most exciting players in the world for the last decade. Some of the biggest clubs in Europe have been looking to Mexico to sign fantastic young players that can offer great value in the transfer market, as well as great football on the pitch.

La Liga clubs are no different and many Mexican players are making the journey to Spain to enjoy a language and culture that is similar to their home nation, and to enjoy some top-level football in one of Europe’s biggest leagues.

Here we are going to look at three of the best Mexican players in La Liga, players that are ones to watch this season as the team fight it out to reach the top of the table and European football next year.

Hector Herrara – Athletico Madrid

Hector Herrara is a midfielder for both Athletico Madrid and the Mexican National side. After six successful years with FC Porto, including serving as the club’s captain, he made the switch to Athletico Madrid this year.

Hector has had a very successful international career, winning an Olympic gold medal at the London 2012 games, but now seeks to take his club football to the next level with Athletico.

Andrés Guardado – Real Betis Balompie

Andrés Guardado is one of the most experienced left backs playing in La Liga. He moved to Spain for the first time in 2007, signing for Deportivo La Coruna from Mexican club Atlas.

After five years and nearly 140 appearances with Deportivo, Andrés made his next move to Valencia to cover the long-term injury of Valencia left back Jeremy Mathieu. Although he impressed the Valencia fans, he made a loan move to Bayer 04 Leverkusen in 2014 and followed this with another loan to PSV Eindhoven the next season.

In 2017, he signed a three-year deal with Real Betis Balompie and quickly became a fan favorite and a mature influence on the squad. Real Betis start this season with a new-look squad and a new sponsor on their shirt, Easy Markets, and will be looking to tap into Guardado’s experience as they make a push to the top end of the table.

Nestor Araujo – Celta de Vigo

Nestor Araujo is a defender who made the journey to Spanish football by signing to Celta de Vigo in the summer of 2017.

Nestor is an experienced defender and has enjoyed success with the Mexican National Team at the London Olympic games in 2012 and the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup and is now looking for club football success with Celta de Vigo.

Celta de Vigo have got a tenacious and hungry defender that has picked up a habit of scoring important goals for his country and can hopefully find the net for Celta as they climb up the table this season.

Mexico has been producing some fantastic footballers that are now becoming some of Europe’s biggest players in some of the biggest clubs. These three Mexican players are definitely worth keeping your eye on as we start the new season.
