Gimenez moves to Cruz Azul from Pachuca

Cruz Azul, runner-up in the Mexico Apertura last weekend, has

purchased Argentine midfielder Christian Gimenez from fellow Mexico

club Pachuca.

In announcing the transfer of Gimenez on Thursday, Cruz Azul

signaled its intent to capture Mexico’s 2010 Clausura championship.

One of Mexico’s big four clubs, Cruz Azul has not won a title in 12

years and lost the 2009 Apertura title on Sunday to Monterrey.

Gimenez has played in Mexico for Veracruz, America and

Pachuca. He played for Boca Juniors, Independiete and Union in

Argentina.
