Monterrey fired his coach: Antonio Mohamed. "We appreciate the commitment shown by Tony and his coaching staff in this stage that is ending and we value their contribution to the achievements of the club since his return as coach, We express to our fans the commitment to find a technical body that allows us to meet the permanent objectives of the institution", said the institution of the Sultana del Norte.
According to Vladimir García, a journalist for W Deportes Radio, Almeyda would be the ideal candidate to lead the team. One of the issues that striped managers must clarify is the Argentine's salary.
There is talk of 2.5 million dollars a year, a contract very similar to the one that Turco Mohamed had in the Nuevo León team. It is worth remembering that when Almeyda directed Chivas he came to charge 400 thousand dollars, a very low figure for what he now claims that Monterey is interested in his services.
Almeyda represented Argentina, appearing with the national team in two World Cups. After retiring in 2011, he was coach of River Plate, Banfield (Argentina), Guadalajara (Mexico) and the San Jose Earthquakes (United States). He won six trophies (five with Chivas).
