Keeper Sanchez ends seven-year Guadalajara stay

MEXICO CITY, Dec 19 (Reuters) - Mexico goalkeeper Oswaldo Sanchez is leaving Guadalajara after seven years at the club and will join Santos Laguna.

Sanchez, regarded as one of the best goalkeepers Mexico has produced, announced his departure one week after the Chivas won the Mexican championship for the first time in nine years.

Guadalajara are Mexico's most popular club and the only one not to field foreign players. The club formed the backbone of the Mexican team at this year's World Cup, where Sanchez, playing shortly after the death of his father, was ever-present.

'That's life, it has its moments and cycles and I think my cycle (at Guadalajara) has finished,' Sanchez told reporters.

Santos Laguna, based in the northern city of Torreon, finished with the worst record of the 18 teams in the Apertura championship, winning only one out of 17 games in Group Three.

The club are investing heavily in the team for the Clausura championship in the second half of the season.

'Santos have offered me a very attractive package,' said Sanchez.
