Jurgen Damm is set to make a return to Mexico after an arguably unsuccessful season in Major League Soccer. Atlanta United officially confirmed that Damm will no longer occupy a spot on the team’s roster or count against the 2022 salary budget.
Club America is set to be the club interested in signing the 29-year-old winger. Jurgen Damm mentioned on his social media that he was not interested in a renegotiation of his salary with Atlanta United, which means a move back to Mexico is very likely. There has been no other Major League Soccer club interested in Damm’s services as his salary is extremely high and no club was willing to take on that financial commitment.
Jurgen Damm began his professional career with Tecos at age 18. He made his debut in the Liga MX on 25 March 2012 in a 0–4 loss against Monterrey under coach Héctor Hugo Eugui. After his first season with Tecos, they were relegated to the Second Division where he remained for several seasons.
Damm completed a permanent transfer to Pachuca on 30 June 2013. During his first season with his new club, he appeared in every game and scored the first goal of his career against Guadalajara on 20 October 2013. In his second season with the club, Pachuca made it to the final of the Clausura 2014 season. He played in all of Pachuca’s playoff matches, reaching the final against León, where Pachuca lost 3–4 on aggregate score.
Damm started off the 2014 Apertura season with an injury in the second match against Monterrey. After having missed 8 games he made a full comeback on 1 October 2014. Jürgen also participated in the 2014–15 CONCACAF Champions League with Pachuca scoring a goal against Municipal on 24 September 2014.
At Tigres, Damm was a part of four Mexican championship teams winning the Liga MX Apertura in consecutive years from 2015 to 2017, while adding the Liga MX Clausura title in 2019. The midfielder was a mainstay for Tigres totaling 172 appearances in all competitions. He completed his Tigres career with 13 goals and 23 assists. Damm also played in 22 CONCACAF Champions League matches and made 4 appearances in the Copa Libertadores when Tigres was invited to the competition in 2015 and reached the final against River Plate.
