Marquez was accused of having ties with alleged drug trafficker Raul Flores Hernandez and was one of 21 people and 42 organisations singled out by the U.S. treasury department.

Specifically, Marquez is alleged to have ties to the "Flores DTO", a drug trafficking organization led by Raul Flores Hernandez.

Julio Cesar Alvarez, more commonly known as Julion Alvarez, is a popular "banda" singer.

Mexico national soccer team captain Rafael Marquez has been accused by the U.S. authorities of being a "front person" for a drug trafficking cartel.

Marquez returned to Atlas in December 2015 after brief stops with Leon and Hellas Verona.

"I deny categorically any type of relation with this organization", he said. Flores Hernandez has worked independently in Guadalajara while painting relationships Sinaloa and Jalisco New Generation cartels. The entities include restaurants, bars, tourism, music production, the Grand Casino in Guadalajara, the Mexican Football club, and Club Deportivo Morumbi.

They are all accused of having ties with alleged drug trafficker Raul Flores Hernandez.




Mr Vigil said: "His forte has been navigating between cartels".

Rafael Marquez denies that he was ever involved with a drug trafficking organization and has vowed to clear his name.

Hernandez has operated for decades due to his longstanding relationships with other drug cartels and his use of financial front persons to mask his investments of illegal drug proceeds, Smith noted. Indictments against Flores Hernandez came in March, and since then the investigation has been trying to turn up his associates.

A spokesman from the president's office declined to comment on why the photo was deleted. The singer, Alvarez, posted a video to his Facebook page saying "absolutely nothing is going on". The Treasury Dept. didn't indicate whether Marquez will face charges from a USA criminal court.

Marquez is famed as a tenacious defender whose crunching tackles have sometimes seen him sent off in high-profile matches.

Marquez is also renowned as one of the greatest players in the history of the Mexican national team.

A former FC Barcelona star has been accused of being a "front person" for a Mexican drug cartel.
