ESPN Deportes is adding Mexican soccer star Hugo Sánchez to its on-air roster. Starting January 15, Sánchez joins ESPN Deportes as a full-time analyst for “Fútbol Picante” and other network platforms.
He’ll be on the show at least two days a week and he’ll also participate in the network’s coverage of Mexican soccer and the Mexican national team.
Sánchez first debuted on ESPN Deportes as a guest analyst during the network’s coverage of the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Sánchez, a top-scorer in Mexico’s Primera División early in his career, has played in three World Cups, won a European Golden Shoe and was named one of Real Madrid’s eleventh all-time greatest player.
