Puebla.- The name of Dieter Villalpando was heard again in the fields of Liga MX and curiously it was to shout the goal with which the Puebla defeated Mazatlán FC 2-0.
This week the former Chivas and Pachuca player had a second chance in football and in life after he was separated for almost a year due to a complaint against him where they accused him of having abused a young woman.
Chivas, the team he was with in 2020 when the complaint was revealed, immediately fired him without leaving him the opportunity to explain things. His last match with the Guadalajara team in Liga MX was on October 25, 2020 against Cruz Azul, after that the indiscipline of Javier López, Alexis Peña, “Gallito” Vázquez and his was uncovered.

Since then Dieter Villalpando remained in the shadows awaiting the resolution of his complaint, which apparently has reached a good destination that a team could find in the MX League almost a year after its scandal. Puebla was the group that accepted the challenge and at the moment many criticisms for giving it work.
Villalpando was registered for this Apertura 2021 but after 13 days he had not had minutes by decision of Nicolás Larcarmón since he was not in shape for so long standing still.
This Wednesday in his match against Mazatlán he entered the 52nd minute of the second half and it was until the 90 + 4 minute when in a counterattack from Puebla he had the ball in front of him and with a touch of reason he beat Nicolás Vikonis for the final 2-0.
Immediately on social networks his name became a trend since they reminded him of the past with Chivas, there were even those who claimed the Liga MX for allowing a player with a complaint of abuse against him to play again, just as it happened with Renato Ibarra of Club América who attacked his ex-wife and was separated from the team for a time but then played with Atlas and in this same tournament he reappeared with the Eagles.

Dieter Villalpando adds just 38 minutes, and with his help he made Puebla get to 9th place in the general table with 18 units and gives him chances to fight for a place in the Repechage and is only one point away from the zone to receive the home game. This Saturday they will return to action against Club León and they will play once again at home.
At the moment Dieter has limited himself to talking on social networks about his return to Liga MX, his main accounts for now have nothing related only to family moments with his children and his wife.
