The midfielder began his career before transforming into one of the strongest box-to-box midfielders in the game, and currently pulls the strings for both club and country.
MEXICAN NATIONAL TEAM
Guardado made his debut for El Tri in December 2005 and has been a critical part of the national team ever since.
After starting his career with Atlas, Guardado was acquired by Deportivo La Coruña in Spain's La Liga in 2007. A year after the club was relegated to the Segunda Division, a season in which he was named the division's best midfielder, Guardado was transferred to Valencia in 2012. After a mostly successful one and a half years, he was loaned out to the Bundesliga side in January of 2014. He now plays for PSV Eindhoven and is a regular in the team.
