Jesús Alberto Dueñas Manzo (March 16, 1989) is a Mexican professional footballer who plays for Liga MX club Tigres UANL and the Mexico national team.[1]

Dueñas is a box-to-box midfielder who is equally adept at halting advances from opposing players as he is creating opportunities by distributing the ball or shooting on goal. He is usually deployed as a central midfielder but he is currently playing as a right-back in Tigres and in the Mexican national team. He can also play as winger.

Club career[edit]

Jesus Dueñas was from Petroleros de Salamanca but later moved to Tigres UANL, the team with which he debuted.[2] Since 2014, Dueñas has become the starting central midfielder of Tigres. He played a key role in the Copa Libertadores 2015.

International career[edit]

In March 2015, Dueñas was called up to the Mexico national team by Miguel Herrera to compete in friendly matches against Ecuador and Paraguay. Dueñas played as starter in the 3-1 victory over Jamaica of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup finals at the Lincoln Financial Field of Philadelphia on July 26, 2015.
