A Mexican youth champion

Stint at Leicester

At 16, he had a short spell with English club Leicester City. “When a European team sets its sights on you, that’s a really big deal, a dream come true for many people,” Tame has said.

“European soccer, particularly the English game, is really physical – and I think I can be a player who’s uncompromising, who competes hard, who goes all out. That’s why Leicester were interested in trying me out.”

During Puebla’s Under-20s’ Clausura 2023 campaign, Tame played 17 games, starting 11 times.
