After struggling to get playing time in Scotland last season, Mexican international right back/right winger Efrain Juarez has moved on loan from Celtic in the Scottish Premier League to Real Zaragoza in La Liga. Zaragoza surprisingly went down a couple of seasons ago, then bounced right back up. Last season, with the team struggling, they brought in former Mexican national team manager Javier Aguirre, who saved them from the drop. He's trying to strengthen his team on a budget, and he's done that with the addition of Juarez.

Juarez only made 13 league appearances at Celtic last season, so it's no surprise that he went in search of more regular first team football. Aguirre has also brought in Mexican international right winger Pablo Barrera from West Ham United. The two formed a formidable tandem down the right for Mexico this summer, and it should be fun to see them re-united as a pair down the right in La Liga this season.
