Fierro burst onto the scene as one of Mexico's key players that won the 2011 U-17 World Cup. Breaking into the Chivas first team shortly after. He's had loan stints at Queretaro and more recently Morelia, and he's won the 2015 Copa MX and the 2017 Clausura Liga MX title at Chivas with Almeyda in charge.
San Jose have rounded into form in recent weeks, sitting just below the playoff line in the Western Conference after losing four straight games to open Almeyda's tenure.
