Pachuca’s 4-2 victory over Leon to begin the 2017 Clausura was about one man, and one many only: Hirving “Chucky” Lozano. The 21-year-old attacker has long been touted the most promising player in Liga MX, and his play has largely evidenced that fact since his debut in 2014.
But Lozano looks to have reached a whole different level in 2016-17. His stunning hat trick against Leon on Saturday showcased his range of talents: speed and quickness, technical ability, an incredible shot and an increasing knack for goals from the wing.
The interest of European clubs like Manchester United shouldn’t shock anyone, and it now appears only a matter of time before they submit an offer that both Lozano and Pachuca cannot refuse.
For now, let’s enjoy Chucky in Liga MX while we still can. Here are his three goals from Saturday.
