Diego Lainez and his dramatic physical change; the former Club América is no longer the same

With little more than two years of having left the Nest of the Club América to try his luck with the Real Betis on the Spanish League, the Mexican midfielder, Diego Lainez, begins to gain regularity with the team of Manuel Pellegrini, being a constant in the Chilean coach’s starting lineup with the Betic team.

Lainez stole the palms of the albiverde fans in the last game of The Spanish League against Real Madrid, where the Mexican showed his best form making Nacho, Modric and Casemiro suffer in the midfield, contesting melee balls and showing that his imbalance and speed are still his main weapons.

In addition to his good performance on the field, Lainez was a trend in social networks due to the viralization of an image where you can see the impressive physical change he has had in these two years in Europe, as the academy player from America has won an important muscle mass that allow him to play face to face against the ‘giants’ of the old continent.

With his 1.67 height, it is evident that Diego Lainez is no longer the boy who weighed 58 kilos when he was 18 years old and played for the Eagles of America, managing to gain an important muscle mass that is evident in the comparison of images.

The case of Lainez shows the difference between the types of training carried out in Europe, because in addition to Diego, Edson Álvarez has also shown a physical evolution in his first years at Ajax in the Netherlands.
