Tigres de Mexico gave the stroke with a series of high-level signings who broke the American market but certainly, the signing that attracted most attention was that of André-Pierre Gignac, French striker very contrasted in European football and who had just been the second top scorer in Ligue 1. Against all odds and despite having very important deals in European leagues, Gignac decided to take a trip to a Mexican football as if it helped by the extraordinary salary paid Tigers. A top salary for a top player.
born 5 from December to 1985, Gignac spent his entire career in France until his arrival in Mexico to wear the jersey Tigres, the team with the best fans in Mexico. Lorient, Toulouse and Marseille were their teams where all, scored goals. Especially in the latter where Marcelo Bielsa was among the top scorers in the French football.
But this, It earned him not to renew the Marseillais box and decided to start his adventure in Mexico where he was welcomed as an idol for the fans of Tigers. For France, He went to South Africa World Cup 2010 although the role of France in the World Cup was far from the best.
Either way, French was the stroke of the transfer market in America and especially in Mexico where he arrived to strengthen the staff's face Mexico. His first goal was swift and was in his second game when he headed the first goal of his team in the semifinal round of the Copa Libertadores in a match that gave Tigres the pass to the final.
The final of the Libertadores against River were not his best games although the player had just arrived a few weeks before the cat box. His first goal in the Liga MX not take long after scoring against Chivas but the bell was his first hat-trick scored against Jaguares hardly have played 10 games with Tigers. Moment with your game, French makes the difference, not only for his goals but for his qualities well above the average of the Liga MX obviously something that is expected of him. Andre Pierre Gignac, a French scoring goals in Mexico. A player who has fallen like a glove in Tigres.
This was the first hat-trick of Gignac with Tigers
