The 19-year-old California-bred midfielder, in his 51st Liga MX appearance, scored Monterrey's second goal in a 5-0 win over Pachuca in Los Rayados' 2019 Clausura opener. Jonathan
Gonzalez, an attacking playmaker for Monterrey's youth teams since moving to Mexico at age 14, has been Monterrey's defensive central midfielder since debuting for the first team in July of
2017. After being sidelined for Monterrey's run to the 2018 Apertura semifinals, he recovered in time for this year's season opener and scored his first Liga MX goal in fine fashion. Early in 2018,
Gonzalez, who had played for the USA's youth national teams, switched to Mexico and debuted for El Tri in February of 2018.
