Soccer Player Antonio Salazar Dies At The Age Of 33

The “Hulk” Salazar had two stages with the rojiblanco team before beginning his journey through various clubs in both Liga MX and Ascenso.

What news that occurred this Tuesday morning in Guadalajara is that the former Chivas soccer player, Antonio Salazar better known as “Hulk” was reported as deceased, without knowing further details about his death at just 33 years old.

It was through the Leaders of the Flock account on Twitter that the sensitive death of the former rojiblanco attacker was reported, who began his career with the Guadalajara squad in a National Classic against America in 2007 when making his debut, although he barely played three minutes in that duel.

After his appearance a year later, he managed to score his first goal in the maximum circuit on April 26, 2008, when he did it against Puebla just 23 seconds after entering the field. His stay in Guadalajara lasted until 2010 when he was loaned to the Jaguares de Chiapas for a year.

Who was Antonio Salazar?

Antonio Salazar Castillo was born on February 7, 1989 in Ciudad Madero Tamaulipas. After his debut in the First Division, Antonio Salazar had a round performance in the Chivas Cup where he became champion and also the top scorer of the red and white squad, therefore he was considered for the first team.

But his performances did not end up convincing and for this reason, he was transferred to the Chiapas in 2010, he returned to the Flock in 2011, but a year later he left again for the Jaguares. Later he had a stint in Altamira and Zacatepec, both in 2013 and in 2014 he played in Costa Rica with Santos de Guápiles together with Francisco el Kikín Fonseca. He returned to Mexico in 2015 where he played for Cimarrones de Sonora, his last club as a professional.
