Lisandro López, one of the greatest idols of the Academy’s fans, is one step away from returning to the club after establishing a verbal link with the head of the Racing Club leadership, Victor White. It should be remembered that the forward will return to activity after a brief stint at Atlanta United of the MLS, a club in which he broke his bond after three months due to a complex family situation.
The attacker will be a new reinforcement for the cast of Juan Antonio Pizzi and it will be available for the restart of the activity in the CONMEBOL Libertadores and the Professional League. The agreement reached by the emblem of the Academy is a six-month link with the possibility of extending it for another semester at the end of 2021.
López had left Racing in January to join the team he now directs Gabriel Heinze in the United States league and there he only played two games for the CONCACAF Champions League, where he accumulated 91 minutes in the round of 16 series against Alajuelense and the first two MLS dates against Orlando City and Chicago Fire , where he started in both games.
In his previous cycles at the ‘Licha’ Academy, he accumulated 205 games and 75 goals with the Albiceleste jersey, where he also became champion of the 2018/19 Super League and the Champions Trophy in 2019 where Avellaneda’s team faced Tigre , winner of the Super League Cup.
