Miguel Herrera has just been fired from Club America, after his team lost against LAFC the semifinal of the Concacaf Champions League. The MLS side was then defeated on the final game against Tigres UANL, but that has no importance for Herrera, who lost his position after the defeat.
Just a couple of days after his departure, the name of the head coach appears in the radar of another Liga MX side. Cruz Azul, that has recently fired Robert Dante Siboldi is looking for a trainer and presented an offer to Herrera to occupy the position, as local press announced.
Herrera has asked some conditions in order to accept and one of those was the signing of Johan Vásquez, central defender from Pumas UNAM who revalorized himself during the last Guard1anes and had such a level that fans on social media joked and compared him with the historical Rafa Márquez.
Vásquez was formed in Cimarrones and moved to Monterrey on July 2018. He then returned to Cimarrones and on January of this year made a permanent move to Pumas UNAM, side that paid $3.5 million to sign him. With a contract remaining until December 2021, Herrera wants Vásquez in Cruz Azul as a condition to accept the position.
