In a matter of a few hours, Club Cruz Azul will be making official the arrival of the technical Director Hugo Sanchez for the Guard1anes 2021 tournament, who would return to the country to manage after 12 years, when he was with Club Pachuca. The only drawback for the moment is that Cruz Azul wants a one-year contract and Hugo Sanchez wants two. Hugo Sanchez is in Spain but as soon as the hiring is made official, he would return to Mexico to do the corresponding Covid tests and take command of the team as soon as possible, as the regular season is less than a week from starting.
The technical body of Sánchez Márquez would be with Sergio Egea and one more assistant, there being the possibility that Joaquín Moreno can be the other assistant, everything will depend on what the new team strategist decides. As always Cruz Azul does bad business, this time it was not the exception, as they spend a lot of money, around 23 million dollars in players that he does not use. The managers of Cruz Azul trust that Hugo Sanchez is a very good option to recover the team mentally after the painful elimination of the last tournament.
The departures that the coach would request to leave the club as soon as possible are those of Pablo Ceppelini, Jonathan Borja and Bryan Angulo, who spent their time with the team completely at night. However, Caraglio and Jesus Corona, having still a contract, would stay for 6 more months
If the contract with Cruz Azul is closed, this team would be the fifth that Sánchez Márquez directs in his career as a coach in Mexico, as he has been in charge of Pumas UNAM, Necaxa and Pachuca, while at the international level, he was with Almería of Spain and the Mexican National Team.
