    1. Rivera is still young(26) and this seems like a good move for him. The Finnish league isn’t one of the most competitive and if his goal is to get back to Mexico or to make the national team, this might be the way to do it. Great example of how playing with a European team doesn’t always mean you’re playing at a higher level.

    1. My only concern is that Vela is like Welbeck: fast, good ball control, and great shot range. Watching Chicharito play with Welbeck you can notice the competition with giving the ball to each other for the final touch. I hope when we see Chicharito and Vela play they quickly get into sync and their is no greed between them.

  1. I heard that Tito Villanova is going to send Jonathan dos Santos on loan whether he likes it or not. I think this would really help him and potentially get called up to the national team again. Possible destinations so far is Espanyol.

      1. Yeah. It be hella ironic if he goes to Espanyol. He would be coached by none other than Javier Aguirre. The same coach that cut him from the 2010 World Cup. Lol. Either way he would be better off getting playing time on loan than on the bench at Barca.
