Most soccer fans are anxiously waiting to see the year’s most anticipated games to be played this summer at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Millions of Spanish-speaking fans in the United States will tune-in to ESPN Deportes to get the latest up-to-date coverage that will be offered, but who will be the voices they will hear?
ESPN Deportes has announced that Hugo Sanchez, a former Real Madrid and Mexican national team striker, will be added to their lineup as one of the correspondents who will analyze and share his expertise on the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Soccer fans may remember Hugo Sanchez as a player who scored many goals for club and country, winning La Liga’s Pichichi (top goal scorer award) five times in the later ‘80s. Sanchez was also a manager for teams such as UNAM Pumas (MEX), UD Almeria (ESP) and the Mexican national team. During his career as a player and a manager, Sanchez is always a person that has a way with words. He is not afraid to speak his mind, right or wrong, which offers an interesting perspective on the game and could also be very entertaining.
Hugo Sanchez will be teaming up with other former players, such as, Mario Kempes (leading goal scorer for the 1978 World Cup for Argentina), Jared Borgetti (all-time leading scorer for the Mexican national team), and expert soccer journalist Jorge Ramos (ESPN analysis for Jorge Ramos y Su Banda). ESPN Deportes believes that with such a mix group of contributors they will offer the fans an all-round coverage of tactics, strategies, opinions, and predictions of the games. The coverage of the games will be available across television, radio, online and mobile, giving the fans the most up-to-date information.
ESPN Deportes can count on Sanchez to get his point across when analyzing the month long soccer event and giving viewers a different aspect of the game. Sanchez will be a valuable asset to the contributors’ booth and will mix well with the other correspondents.
