Matías Almeyda wrote his name in Chivas history. The Argentinian head coach was the last one to gain a title at the Mexican side and the fans remember him as a true hero, in a very dedicated moment of the team. And, after some years, he may be having a huge revenge that he is looking forward to.
Even though Almeyda is currently San Jose Earthquakes head coach, rumors pointed out that Palmeiras Brazilian side may be offering him a contract. If he accepts, he will be having his revenge. Almeyda couldn't play the Copa Libertadores with Chivas even though he deserves it.
After winning the Supercopa MX 2015/16, he should have qualified with his team to the continental competition. But rules change and Mexican teams decided to leave the tournament, leaving Almeyda and Chivas with no chances for the title. After several years, the coach may have the change to chance the Copa Libertadores once again.
Palmeiras has kicked their coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo and the name of Almeyda appears with some others as Gabriel Heinze or Quique Setién to assume at the club. The "Verdao", as the club is known, will play the round of 16 of the competition against Delfín from Ecuador and, if qualifying, will be facing Jorge Wilstermann, from Bolivia, or Libertad, Paraguay.
