Squad informationEdit

Liga's squad for the season is allowed a maximum of four foreign players at any one time, and a maximum of eight throughout the season. During the off season, Norberto Araujo changed his nationality from Argentine to Ecuadorian. At the start of the season, Liga was mandated to start one under-18 player in each match. Since the Ecuadorian national U-20 team qualified to the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup, that was changed to have an under-20 player start in each game. The jersey numbers in the main table (directly below) refer to the number on their domestic league jersey. The under-18/under-20 players will wear a jersey number of at least #50. For each CONMEBOL competition, Liga must register 25 players, whose jerseys will be numbered 1–25. Because of this, some players may have different jersey numbers while playing in CONMEBOL matches.

Winter transfersEdit

During the off-season, Liga saw a number of high-profile players leave the squad. Veterans Carlos Espínola,[1] Renan Calle,[2] and Christian Lara[3] left the team to look for more playing time, while Juan Manuel Salgueiro returned to Estudiantes after Liga could not secure a permanent move. Víctor Estupiñán and Joao Plata and went to the United States to take part in the MLS SuperDraft.[4] They were drafted by Chivas USA and Toronto FC. Franklin Salas attempted to move abroad, but failed to find a suitor. After a prolonged process, he was loaned to Imbabura.[5] Other loaned out players were Pedro Romo[6] and Manuel Mendoza to Aucas and Universidad Católica, respectively. Ángel Cheme, better known as Gonzalo Chila, was suspended for two-year due to aggravated identity theft.[7]

To reinforce the squad, Liga signed former stars Luis Bolaños[8] and Enrique Vera,[9][10] with Daniel Viteri returning after a season on loan.[11] Argenis Moreira,[12][13] Fernando Hidalgo,[11] and Geovanny Caicedo[13] were also signed. Liga's highest profile transfer was Ezequiel González from Fluminense.[14][15] This also filled their squad's foreign player quota. Ángel Ledesma was loaned form Macará should the squad need U-18 down the line.[16]

Summer transfersEdit

On May 16, 2011, veteran goalkeeper José Francisco Cevallos announced his retirement from professional football.[17] He played his last game on May 22.[18] In late July, the club announced that Carlos Luna was loaned to a club to be determined at a later date. Youth-player Nelson Martínez was loaned to Aucas in mid June.[19] That was followed by the late-July loan of forward Luis Batioja to Universidad Católica.[20]

In late July, Liga reinforced their squad with two players transferring from Argentina. Forward Claudio Bieler returned to the club after a year-and-a-half on a loan from Racing. In the time in between, he became a naturalized Ecuadorian, freeing up a foreign-player spot in the team.[21] The remaining foreign-player spot was filled by midfielder Lucas Acosta, who was transferring in from San Martín de San Juan.[22]
