Club América will face Club Puebla in the second leg of the quarterfinals of Clausura 2022 in Estadio Azteca for a ticket to the semifinals, after the first leg ended in a 1-1 draw, a result that gives Las Águilas a slight advantage due to the position on the table and the away goals.

The Azulcremas will try to improve their unbeaten streak, as they haven’t lost a game since the roundnine of the regular season against CF Monterrey, the game in which Fernando “Tano” Ortíz debuted as coach of the first team.

Since then, Club América has played nine games, winning six of them -all of them back-to-back from the round 11 to the 16th- and tying the remainder three, including the first game of the knockout stage, numbers that speak well about “Tano” Ortíz capabilities of managing a team like Las Águilas.

That’s why Emilio Azcárraga and Santiago Baños didn’t wait until after knowing the result of the game against Club Puebla, and already took a decision about the future of Fernando Ortíz in Club América after the current season is over.

Will “Tano” Ortíz remain as Club América’s coach?

This is the first time that Fernando Ortíz coaches a team in a first division, let alone one as big as Club América is, but during the short period of time that he’s had in front of Las Águilas, he’s showed that he has a clear plan to follow and that has been able to convince the players to follow him.

According to reports from TUDN, Emilio Azcárraga is satisfied with the performance that Club América has had since Ortíz took over, which is why he wants him to remain as Las Águilas coach once Clausura 2022 is over.

On the other hand, Santiago Baños said during an interview for ESPN that they will analyze the performance of the team as well as the planification of Ortíz when their participation is over to know if he can be Las Águilas’s next coach, although there’s a possibility of ensuring it before Clausura ends.

What’s the chance that Ortíz has?

According to Baños, if Las Águilas manage to win Liga MX title, Fernando Ortíz will automatically be renewed as the coach of Club América for two years, something that seems attainable if they manage to beat Club Puebla first.
