The Ecuadorian striker joins the list of failed transfers in the recent history of the cement institution.
Jonathan Borja is part of one of the most embarrassing lists for Cruz Azul managers in recent years. The Ecuadorian forward joins the big flops of the transfer market that cementers have tried to exhaust in South American football. Borja is unemployed today.
The gunner came from Ecuador as one of the biggest promises of football in that country. However, just one year later he packed his bags after failing to adapt to Liga MX or the coach; then, Robert Dante Siboldi. The Uruguayan was critical of the attitude of the footballer who did not take his career in the cement factory so seriously.
Borja returned to Ecuador in search of playing time, which he did not have in Mexico. However, the Ibarra-born player refused to play with CD Nacional – the owners of his record – due to the low fees he received, so he waited for the contract with the institution of the tricolor to reach its final point to receive the letter of freedom.
In the meantime, Always Ready from Bolivia appeared as a “salvation”. The team from the Andean country added the Ecuadorian as reinforcements for the Copa Libertadores contest. Months after the elimination, Borja was left without a team again and is currently unemployed and waiting for better opportunities.
There were not a few who spoke about the talent of the South American with the ball at his feet. His technique and physical display made him a lethal weapon for any team that made use of his services. But those skills on the field didn’t go hand-in-hand with a winning mentality off it, something that ends up being just as important or even more important.
