Xolos' key player

Miler Bolaños. He changed his jersey's number, now carries the 10 and fulfills exactly that function, is the creative offensive and one of its advantages is the ability to play anywhere in the attack, whether on the right wing, left wing or behind the forward, additionaly, has a good definition.
