The American is headed for the Ascenso

After bouncing around Northern Europe, briefly being out of contract, and then finally catching on with Club Tijuana, Rubio Rubin is once again on the move. This time the American attacker is headed to Ascenso MX side Dorados de Sinaloa.

Rubin’s time in Tijuana saw him struggle to find consistent playing time as he mostly appeared off of the bench. The move means that Rubin won’t get a chance to fight for playing time under new manager Oscar Pareja. The new Tijuana manager has a reputation for giving young players a chance to make an impact on teams he’s led, but Rubin will be looking to find more starts under manager Diego Maradona.

Needless to say, this is something of a disappointment, but riding the bench was not an ideal situation for the youngster. Still, Dorados may be a team that is on the rise in the Mexican second division. The club managed to reach the Ascenso Apertura finals earlier this month only to fall to Atletico San Luis 4-3 on aggregate.
