Diaz Returning for 2022 Season!

Alejandro “Wero” Diaz will be returning to Pacific FC for the 2022 Canadian Premier League season.

Diaz, 26, joined Pacific from Mexican side Atlas Guadalajara where he was a highly-regarded talent. Since joining the club, Diaz has scored 15 goals in 41 appearances. In 2021, the clinical centre-forward finished with 10 CPL goals, tied for fourth in the league, and 12 goals in all competitions. The Mexican striker scored only the second hat-trick in Canadian Premier League history when he put three goals past Atletico Ottawa on July 21st. While Diaz has grown into a complete centre-forward, his instincts in the six-yard box haven’t gone away; his poacher’s goal against Vancouver Whitecaps proved to be the winner in the club’s 4-3 victory.

Diaz is the fifth returning player announced to date. Wero’s announcement will be followed by more returnees in the coming days and weeks.
