Fans In Holland Show Love to a Mexican Soccer Star

Mexican soccer star Andres Guardado has found a home at PSV Eindhoven of the Dutch pro league. After several ups-and-downs during his time in the Spanish league, the 28-year-old was loaned to PSV where his standout performances have made him a fan favorite. PSV is doing so well this season they’ve virtually locked up the league championship.

Guardado, who is “owned” by Spanish team Valencia CF, is only on a one-season loan, which means he could be leaving PSV to rejoin Valencia. PSV fans do not want Guardado to go, so they’ve gone the extra mile to show how much they want him back.

This weekend, during a recent league match, a section of fans created a mosaic with the colors of the Mexican flag to show their appreciation for Guardado.

They also hung huge banner:

It reads: “Andres Guardado nuestra aguila de Oro Mexicana. Tiene que estar en el PSV Eindhoven. Nuestra casa es su casa.” That’s love.

Guardado called it the “most beautiful thing he’s ever experienced on a field.”

It’s not the first time Guardado has received an ovation from PSV fans.

They’ve created a chant for Guardado that’s sung to the melody of “Cielito Lindo.”

Will Guardado stay?
