New flagship recruit of the Tigers, where he signed up for five years, Florian Thauvin was greeted like a rockstar at Monterrey airport!
The announcement of his transfer to Mexico had caused a sensation, and the reception he received in Monterrey lived up to the expectations he arouses. Arrived last night in his new home, a little over a month after the formalization of his signature for five years with the Tigers, Florian Thauvin has already had a good idea of what he is going to experience in this crazy football country.

Several hundred supporters of the UANL had indeed made an appointment at the airport to welcome the former Marseillais, already deploying banners in his effigy. After being assaulted by photographers and journalists, the tricolor world champion (28) was therefore entitled to his first Mexican walkabout. Impressive!
Thauvin ” shocked “ !
A fervor that has already touched “FloTov” to the heart. “Thank you for this welcome, it was incredible, I am still in shock! Proud to be a Tiger ”, he posted on Instagram, before inviting his new audience to join him “In the volcano” this Friday, for formal presentations. With, no doubt, his friend and teammate André-Pierre Gignac by his side.
