For Hirving Lozano, the chance to play in the English Premier League is there, but ht still has a lot to learn in PSV Eindhoven

Mexican international Hirving Lozano is having the time of his life in PSV Eindhoven in the Dutch Eredivisie.

Not only he has scored 25 goals in just 40 matches since 2017, but he also was reunited with his long-time friend from Pachuca Erick Gutierrez.

But the youngster was Mexico’s best player in the 2018 FIFA World Cup and wishes he could play in the English Premier League in the future.

“I hope that God, someday, gives me a shot at playing in the Premier League. I like it very much,” he was quoted by ESPN.

“I think the Premier League is great. I think that it would be fabulous to play with any of the clubs, but I would love to play for one of the big clubs. I hope that God gives me the chance.”

“The truth is that our group [which also includes Barcelona and Inter Milan] was a complicated one, with great players and great clubs,” he added.

“We fought hard at each match to try to do our best. It is a pity that their last goal went in after all that rebounding, but that is football. We have to keep improving and keep learning a lot from these beautiful tournaments. It’s a wonderful experience.”

“My takeaway is that I have gained a lot of experience and a lot of learning. I think I’ve enjoyed it to the max and I’ve given my best, and that is the most important thing,” he concluded.
