TIJUANA – The Brazilian naturalized Mexican Leandro Agusto Oldoni was let go from Puebla and his future is now in doubt for the upcoming Apertura 2013 season of the Liga Bancomer MX.
The Puebla directors have denied the fact that Leandro Agusto has been cut from the team, but it is a fact that he is not registered with the federation as part of the Puebla squad.
According to local press in Puebla the reason for the conflict between Agusto and the Puebla is due to Agusto’s wage requirements; they are to high for the Puebla team to cover.
His Tijuana Xolos teammate Alfredo “Chango” Moreno has already been registered with the federation as part of Puebla. Agusto on the other hand is not in the system yet, but he did take the official team photo.
According to Maria Perez of FutbolPasion the goalkeeper Armando Navarrete said “The entire team is united so we can get the issues between players and directors resolved. We as a team support each other and hope and agreement can come soon. We’ll probably meet with the directors again.”
Leandro Agusto arrived in the Tijuana Xolos squad in June of 2011 for $2 Million from Pumas UNAM. It is rumored that if Agusto and the Puebla directors don’t reach an agreement that he will be returning to Xolos and be put in the second division affiliate Dorados de Sinaloa.
