Mexican media sources are reporting Alan Pulido is missing after reportedly being taken by armed kidnappers outside a restaurant in his hometown of Ciudad Victoria, where the Olympiakos striker had returned following the end of the Greek league season.

Pulido, a former Mexican national team member, had reportedly been left off the Copa America roster due to a dispute with his former team, Tigres.


Pulido’s brother confirmed the kidnapping to Medio Tiempo, saying the soccer star had disappeared in the early hours after attending a party. Pulido’s girlfriend was also reportedly taken, but later released by the alleged kidnappers.
