Club América is having one of the worst tournaments in recent years, as they have managed to earn just 10 points in 11 games played on Clausura 2022, although for over a month they were the team standing last given the 6 points they earned after 9 rounds.

The lack of good results made Emilio Azcárraga and Santiago Baños sacking Santiago Solari after eight rounds, as the Argentine coach was never able to establish a good system despite knowing most of the players for over a year and making them Liga MX leaders just a season before.
For the past three games, Las Águilas have had Fernando “Tano” Ortíz as their coach, although he’s waiting for América to hire a new coach so he can return to his position with the U-20 squad, even if he knows that he’ll end the season in the Azulcremas’ dugout.
Azcárraga and Baños have been looking for potential replacements to arrive once Clausura 2022 is over, and even if a lot of names have been linked to Las Águilas, one of the coaches that stands out the most is Hugo Sánchez.
Can he arrive in Club América?
During one of his participations in ESPN, Hugo Sánchez confirmed his interest in coaching a team like Club América, as he knows that what Las Águilas needs is a coach that knows the institution and is willing to change things no matter how hard the challenge is.
Arriving to Las Águilas could also mean having one of the biggest showcases of his life, alongside Mexico National Team, in order to resume his coaching career, after pausing it since 2012, when he last coached Club Pachuca.
But Sánchez was clear about thing: the locker room of Las Águilas needs to be rebuilt, as the current roster hasn’t showed that they have what it takes to help Club América return to their former glory, that’s why he’ll request the departure of four players.
Who are the players that will leave América?
Baños is known for negotiating with PitZGroup to acquire most of the players América has added in recent years, that’s why Hugo Sánchez will part ways with players represented by this group, including Henry Martín, Jordan Silva, Alejandro Zendejas and Mauro Lainez.
