Last weekend Tigres paid a small tribute in El Volcán to Tomás Boy, the second highest scorer of the feline club, only below Andre-Pierre Gignac; however, the board considers that the historic player deserves even more, so they are planning something bigger during a special match.
At the press conference for the Clásico Regio, the president of the club, Mauricio Culebro, and the sports director, Antonio Sancho, broke the news:
“Thomas Boy He is a historical figure in the institution and in Mexican soccerwas the team’s top scorer for 2 or 3 decades, we are seeing how we will pay tribute to him,” Culebro said.
Immediately afterwards, Antonio Sancho complemented the plan by saying that they would like it to be during the game they are trying to close, the rematch against Bayern Munich in the middle of the year.
“Against Bayern hopefully it can be donewe are excited about this, hopefully, we all want to play against Bayern and hopefully it can be done in the summer, “he said.
If this duel that the feline directive has pursued for several months is achieved, it would be the most important friendly that the club would face during 2022, so it would have a special meaning that the tribute to the legendary number 8 of the Nuevo León club would be paid there.
It should be remembered that The Aztec team has already faced the German giant in the final of the 2021 Club World Cupgame that the Mexicans lost 1-0, so now they will seek revenge at home.
