The Cruz Azul team continues to work tirelessly in order to get its new coach after the resignation of Robert Dante Siboldi. One of the main options is the former champion coach with Chivas de Guadalajara Matias Almeyda, who currently manages the San Jose Quakes in the MLS.
As Matias Almeyda still has one more year contract with San Jose, the arrival to Cruz Azul would be somewhat complicated, however the desire of the Argentine to return to Mexico is enough for which he would be willing to listen to the proposals of the Cruz Azul board of directors.
According to information from the local media, despite the year of contract that Matias Almeyda has left with San Jose, the coach would already be in talks with Cruz Azul to ensure his arrival for the following summer 2021. This situation complicates the Azul team, as they would have to hire an interim coach in order to lead only the Clausura 2021, a situation that looks unattractive for any coach, as it is difficult to sign a contract for only one tournament.
For now, Cruz Azul has the interim coach, Armando González, his assistant Joel Huiqui, and Óscar Pérez, who is the goalkeeper coach for the team's participation in the Concacaf Champions League. Matias Almeyda led 147 games with Chivas de Guadalajara, getting 64 wins, 40 draws and 43 defeats, he won 1 League, 2 MX Cups and 1 Concacaf Champions League. In MLS, Almeyda has a negative balance with the San Jose Earthquakes of 63 games played, 23 won, 11 tied and 28 lost.
