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.”

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

Will Guardado stay?

Guardado says he’s happy at PSV and hopes he can stay, but he understands the decision is not in his hands.

Five months after the disappearance of 43 students in Ayotzinapa, Mexico, 12 parents have gathered to seek support for their cause in the U.S. The three-part, 30-stop Ayotzinapa Caravan made it’s first appearance on March 16, at a panel in San Antonio and rallied to the Mexican Consulate in Austin.

Over 160 groups throughout the nation including Alabama, Michigan and New York are preparing to to welcome the parents and their advocates to help inform and demand that investigations continue until justice is served. Felipe de la Cruz, one of the tour organizers and father of one of the missing students, announced they expect to meet with representatives of human rights groups and politicians.

After completing their three separate routes along both coasts and central states, all three caravans will meet in Washington, D.C. and end the tour in New York City on March 20.
