Miami, Florida (January 1, 2018) – Futbol Marketing Group (FMG) is proud to announce that FMG has successfully completed the permanent transfer of USA Men’s National team Defender Ventura ‘Ventuz’ Alvarado to Club Necaxa (MEX) from Santos Laguna (MEX). Ventuz has been apart of the Santos organization since January of 2017. The Phoenix, Arizona born Defender, made over 20 appearances with Santos Laguna in Liga MX (Mexican League) over 12 months.
Alvarado, 25, a product of Club America’s academy system made his professional debut with Club America in 2012. Ventuz was loaned out to Necaxa for one year from 2013-2014 and permanently moving to Santos Laguna on January 1st, 2017. Ventura made his USA international debut on March 25th, 2015 vs Denmark under Jurgen Klinsmann. Ventuz has expressed his desire to return to the national team stage and said “My goal is to become the starter at Necaxa and play as many minutes as possible and consequently, hoping to get called back into the USA camp”.
Futbol Marketing Group’s CEO, Cris Barbosa, shared his thoughts on Ventura’s transfer, “We are extremely happy of the way Ventura has kept a positive mindset throughout all the injuries he suffered in 2017, which ultimately, limited his playing time. I have told Alvarado his goals for this season needs to be the starter at Necaxa, staying healthy, and being consistent. Alvarado has all the tools of a modern defender. He can play out the back, superb aerial game and can cover a lot of ground with his pace. I am confident he will soon be called back into the USA camp and will have the chance to compete for a starting position at the national team level”.
