Ricardo Ferretti has been leading Tigres since 2010 and has been part of one of the club's most successful cycles. His contract with the Mexican team ends in 2021 and that is why the club's directors are already thinking about his replacement, in case the Mexican-Brazilian coach decides not to renew his contract.
Seeing Ferretti's possible departure, the club has been following Javier Aguirre, who has declared that he wants to coach a club where long-term projects are respected. Because of that reason, what other club would be better than Tigres, which has had the same coach for the last 10 years.
Javier Aguirre is well-known in Spain: he has led Osasuna (2002-2006), Atlético de Madrid (2006-2009), Real Zaragoza (2010-2011), Espanyol (2012-2014) and is the current coach of Leganes (2019-present). Although he has never won a championship with a Spanish team, he is admired by many people.
Current Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has confessed that Aguirre was one person who taught him many things about football. The Frenchman said that Aguirre's advice helped him become a better coach. As a head coach, Zinedine Zidane has won two Spanish LaLiga and three Champions Leagues with Real Madrid.
