The amazing coincidence of Mateo Chávez and Armando González

The Red-and-White blood line is laudable : the passion for Guadalajara passes from father to son and is carried with pride. On Saturday against Santos, the Rebaño's past and present came together on the field of Akron Stadium in the jerseys of Armando 'Hormiga' González and Mateo Chávez: wears going to tell you why.

What was the coincidence in the Chivas-Santos match?

In addition to the fact that both Red and White youth players saw their first minutes in the First Division, their jerseys referred to two Chiverío players in the past. Both the 'Hormiga' with 34, and Mateo with 50, wore numbers that their fathers wore with Guadalajara in their time.

When did Armando González and 'Tilón' Chávez wear those jerseys?

Both former Rebaño players wore those numbers during their active time with the team. The first was Armando González Bejarano, who debuted in the 1988-89 season and wore the 34 that his son, Armando González Alba, wears today.

Then it was Paulo César Chávez, who in 1993 made his debut in the maximum circuit with the 50 on his back, which is now worn by his son Mateo.
