MEXICO CITY -- Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa is set to return to Club America from Standard Liege, the Liga MX side announced on Tuesday evening.

Ochoa was thought to be intent on staying in Europe, but offloading Agustin Marchesin to Porto last week left America in need of a starting goalkeeper and the 34-year-old has chosen to return to the Mexico City club he made his professional debut for in 2004.

Mexico international Guillermo Ochoa didn't show up for training at Standard Liege on Sunday due to travel complications to Belgium, sources close to the player have told ESPN FC.

Ochoa had been criticized on Sunday by Standard Liege's CEO Alexandre Grosjean for "lacking professionalism" in not turning up, which came as a surprise to Ochoa's camp, as the 34-year-old had made head coach Michel Preud'homme and club president Buno Venanzi aware of his delayed return to preseason, according to the sources.

"We've already spoken with the club and there are things still to resolve, but I think it is the time to leave."
