The game between Club América and FC Juárez not only can mean the ratification of Fernando “Tano” Ortíz as the coach that helped them leave the crisis behind, but also could mean a bigger paycheck for him once Clausura 2022 is over, as if he keeps up with the good results, he will remain as coach for the next season.
More Club América news:
Before he took over the team prior round 9, Las Águilas had won just one game -against Club Santos in round 5- and tied three more games for a total of 6 points. But ever since, Club América has earned 7 points in 4 games.
Although they still have a long way before returning to the top spots of the league, with a victory over FC Juárez, who are the last standing team in Liga MX with only two victories this season, the Azulcremas will return to Repechaje positions, aspiring to lock a playoff spot.
On the other hand, if Los Bravos lose their six games in a row, Juárez management could finally decide to part ways with Ricardo “Tuca” Ferretti in what will mean his first destitution while a season is still being played.
Ricardo Ferretti will be facing Karma
But the clash will also have a revenge tastefor “Tano” Ortíz, as he could become the coach that puts an end to Ferretti’s stint in FC Juárez after “Tuca” erased him from Tigres when he played there in the 2009-10 season.
When Ortíz arrived to Tigres, he played a total of 26 games wearing Los Felinos colors, and even if he wasn’t able to score, he was a regular in Tigres lineup. But when Ricardo Ferretti took over the team at the end of the season, one of his first decisions was to part ways with the Argentine defender.
After that, “Tano” Ortíz had to leave Liga MX and return to Argentina, where he had his last years as a professional player, but now he will have the opportunity of being responsible of the end of Ferretti’s stint if Las Águilas manage to earn the three points in Estadio Azteca.
Ferretti’s numbers with FC Juárez
Ricardo Ferretti arrived in Bravos for the current season just two weeks after he parted ways with Tigres after coaching them for 11 seasons. So far, “Tuca” has coached 29 games, from which he’s won six of them, saved six draws and lost the remained 17.
