Gignac is Tigres’ third champion goal scorer

SAN NICOLÁS DE LOS GARZA | Monday, May 9, 2016.- André-Pierre Gignac  is the champion goal scorer of the 2016 Winter Tournament (Clausura) with 13 goals, earning a place, in his second tournament with the team, in Tigres’ history and sharing this honor with Andrés ‘Cuqui’ Silvera and ‘Divino’ Walter Gaitán.

Only the Argentine duo, Silvera and Gaitán, had been able to achieve this honor of being Mexican football’s top scorers. However, they both shared their title with other players:  ‘Cuqui’ with Bruno Marioni, from Pumas, and ‘Divino’ with Kléber Boas, Matías Vuoso and Sebastián Abreu.

Gignac was able to secure the title of top scorer with 13 goals, surpassing his closest rivals by four and even bettering the 11 goals he had scored in the previous tournament.

Since his arrival at Tigres, the French player already has a total of 32 goals in 45 matches played, with an average of .7 goals per game, although the Playoffs are still to come.
