Darwin Machis came to Mexican soccer to play with FC Juarez of Liga MX
Víctor Sánchez Valdivieso @vesanchezv – After weeks of negotiations that took into account its legal situation in the Iberian Peninsula, the Venezuelan player Darwin Machis will move from the LaLiga of Spain to the Liga MX of Mexico, when his transfer to the Ciudad Juarez Braves that they have the red wine to face the 2022 Opening Tournament of the First Division.
The now former team, Granada CF, announced in a public statement the disassociation of the deltan who wore the Nasrid jacket “during three stages” disputing “156 official games with the first team; being the one started in 2019 where he was part of the recent successes such as qualifying for the UEFA Europa League dispute” where they reached the quarterfinals of the 2020-2021 campaign.
156 games was the total number of commitments made by the player of the Absolute Red Wine Team where he shared game time and multiple titles with the compatriot Yangel Herrera, where they were part of Granada that was only stopped by Manchester United in the prelude to the semifinals of the tournament.
Last season, Machis saw action in 25 games with the rojiblancos, where he scored 4 goals and made 3 assists in 1,380 minutes, which could not prevent the team from losing the category in the First Division, making him an attractive piece to be traded to the clubs from Europe and South America.
Even before FC Juárez, the Águilas del América and Rayados de Monterrey asked about his file before. He was also close to going to Charlotte FC in the American MLS, but the negotiations could not come to a happy conclusion with Granada.
The transfer of the Venezuelan to Mexico was conditioned by his legal situation in Spain, after the alleged request made by the Granada Prosecutor’s Office to grant the player 18 months in prison, after allegedly being immersed in crimes of injuries and threats to two employees in a fight that arose in a bar in the Andalusian city in April 2021. Two other people have been investigated for this fact.
Directed by the Argentine Diego Cristante, the Ciudad Juárez Braves will play the Opening Tournament of the First Division MX League, which is about to start on July 1. The border team finished in the last box of the Closing Tournament – and in the 2021/2022 general classification – which, although it will not lower them in category, will force them to pay a fine in money to help the expansion league teams Mexican.
