Florian Thauvin's adventure in Mexico is already over.
For several weeks, the days of the former Marseille player had been threatened on the side of the Tigres, a club in the Mexican Ligue 1.
In question, first of all the performance of the Frenchman, who has not really succeeded in imposing himself since his arrival in 2021, but also a regulation which imposed on the Tigers to free themselves from a non-Mexican player in order to be able to recruit.
If André-Pierre Gignac managed to win in Mexico, Florian Thauvin never managed to walk in these footsteps.
In 38 games played in a season and a half, the midfielder scored only 8 goals.
A total deemed insufficient for the leaders of the Tigers, who formalized the departure of the Frenchman in a press release:
“Club Tigres informs that the decision has been taken to end the contractual relationship with the player, explains this press release.
We thank Florian for the efforts and professionalism he has shown throughout the year and a half he has spent with us and wish him much success in his future projects.
The 2018 world champion, whose contract with the Tigers would run until June 2026, is therefore on the market.
Announced on the side of OM, Florian Thauvin could return to the French championship faster than expected.
