The Mexican winger Hirving Lozano has had a great season so far with the Dutch Eredivisie team and praised his former league.

Hirving Lozano joined Dutch Eredivisie club PSV in the summer of 2017.

Since then he has played 66 games, scoring in 37 occasions.

He is loving his first time playing outside Mexico, but he said that if he would ever stop playing in Europe, he would prefer the Mexican Liga MX over the United States’ Major League Soccer.

“I would not rule out MLS, right now things are going well for me here though. I am young and I hope to have a long career here,” the 23-year-old told ESPN.

“Hopefully that would be a long way away, although no one knows what the future holds. I would never rule it out, although [if I did have to leave Europe] I would lean more toward a return to Mexico.”

“All the Liga MX clubs are good and [if I had to return] I would opt for the one that would be the best option for me,” he added.

“Lozano, who said it was always his dream to play in Europe, added he would love to sign with a club in England or Spain someday.”

There were many rumours over the summer about him leaving the Netherlands to join a team in other European competitions.

“I like both leagues and I would not rule out either one. I would love to play in both [Premier and LaLiga],” Lozano explained.

“It would be great if something really nice were to happen and then I would take the decision that was best for me and my family.”

“But I have a way to go. I have to see what will happen in this season. I always try to think about what would be best for my family and for me,” the Mexican footballer added.

“The rest is a long way away, but those would be my main reasons [in any decision].”

“To be here, to be improving, to have this dream for my future and to try to be the best I can be – and yes, I am aware that this was a big jump for me. All I can do right now is to live in this moment. The future, it will come and I have faith that it will be good. But right now I am living each day at this moment,” he concluded.
