Peralta’s contract with Chivas ended in December, a time when both parties sat down to negotiate but from the red and white offices they had another plan: offer the one born in Torreón a position in the organization chart of the club to help in the work of the basic forces.
But nevertheless, Peralta rejected the proposal considering that he still had football left in his legs, but after the announcement of his official withdrawal yesterday, from El Rebaño they have insisted again to reconsider joining the work team that seeks to strengthen the basic forces of Chivas, occupying the place that Michel Leaño previously had.
According to information from the newspaper El Universal Deportes, in Chivas they do not want to give their arm to twist and are still waiting for the “Brush” to accept the proposal. “The leadership of the Sacred Flock holds him in high esteem and has proposed that he rejoin the basic forces, where their job would be to teach the kids how to take notes, as ironic as that sounds.“, reads part of the text.
The irony of the lines above is explained by Oribe’s low scoring contribution while defending the Chivas shirt. And it is that despite the fact that he arrived as one of the most reputable and most experienced gunners in Aztec football, the ‘Hermoso’ only scored one goal with the Guadalajara in two years.
