Arsenal dealt a serious blow to the young Mexican soccer player Marcelo Floresthis after making official that The footballer will not be summoned to the preseason with the “gunners”. It should be noted that it was for this reason that the soccer player born in Canada did not dress up with Mexico in the past Under 20 World Cup where the “Tri” was eliminated by Guatemala and with no chance of qualifying for the World Cup.
The Mexican under 20 team did not have its top figures, among which Flores stood out. The fact is that Arsenal would not have given permission to the Mexican national team to join the concentration taking as a reference the team’s pre-season tour of the United Statessomething that finally did not materialize since the Spanish DT Mikel Arteta did not include the young man among those summoned.
The future of Marcelo Flores
For now Marcelo Flores is removed from Arsenal’s preseason and excluded from the first team with which he has not yet debuted. He was only called up once in a game against Crystal Palace but never saw action. With the U18 he has played a total of 26 games, scoring 10 goals and giving a total of three assists.
The absence of the soccer player remains paradoxical because the “gunners” truncated the possibility of representing their team in the World Cup that unleashed a disaster and a cleanup of charges in the Mexican teams. It remains to be seen if after said incident Marcelo Flores will be taken into account to represent Mexico again.
It is noteworthy that other homegrown players like Reuell Walters and goalkeeper Bernd Leno if they were called by Mikel Artetaalthough it is said that the latter has everything ready to uniform in the colors of Fulham.
Arsenal tour in the United States
Arsenal have shown slight improvements last season in which they finished fifth just two points from entering the Champions League places. In this sense and with a young team the “gunners” hope to continue improving this campaign and for this they have incorporated the Brazilian Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City.
Arsenal has a young payroll so it was believed that Flores would be a good bet. Arsenal’s games in the United States will begin on July 16 against Everton at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
Later on July 20 they will face off against Orlando City SC at Orlando’s Exploria Stadium and they close the tour on July 23 at this same stadium by facing Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea.
