Tata Martino goes out of his way to praise Edson Álvarez

On Tuesday, Tata Martino, manager of the Mexican national team, talked about which player he sees with the potential to go to play in Europe.

21-year-old centre-back Edson Álvarez, who plays for América, has been very impressive this season and Tata sees him as one of the best players that Mexico has to offer.

“If I had to choose a player who is ready to make the jump, it would be Edson Álvarez,” Martino said.

“He is a starter in América, has a World Cup experience and is versatile.”

América will face Tigres in a huge match on Saturday.
