After his time at Borussia he returned back to Mexico and joined Club Tijuana . He currently plays for Club Tijuana but is not in the mix.
According to Meridiano Everything is almost ready for the New York Cosmos to sign Juan Arango. Juan is best known for his ability to strike and bend the ball and is recognized as one of the best ball strikers off set pieces. He is an attacking midfielder , and will bring a lot of experience to the team.
