Tigres UANL was defeated by America 3-1 this Sunday in the anteultimate week of the Liga MX. In that way, the team led by Miguel Herrera has qualified directly for the next stage of the tournament. On the other hand, the team coached by Ricardo Ferretti will have to play the play-offs.
After the heavy defeat, the Tigres fans strongly criticized the 66-year-old coach on social media. According to the fans' explanation, "Tuca" Ferreti had put together an overly defensive team. In addition, they claimed that he did not start the center-back Hugo Ayala.
The coach might have made a mistake in his game plan because he is thinking about leaving the club. He apparently received an offer from Palmeiras, which is looking for a new coach after firing the former manager of Real Madrid Vanderlei Luxemburgo on October 14, after losing three straight games in the Brasileirao.
Ferretti has been leading Tigres since 2010 and he is linked by contract with the Mexican team until 2021. He has won the Mexican Liga MX five times (Apertura 2011, 2015, 2016, 2017 and Clausura 2019) and the Copa de Campeones three times (2016, 2017 and 2018).
