After getting the Olympic bronze with the Mexican National Team, Jaime Lozano’s bonuses have risen like foam. The 42-year-old manager has drawn the attention of clubs in both Major League Soccer (MLS) and Liga MX. After his participation with El Tri in Tokyo 2020, ‘Jimmy’ announced that he would not continue to lead the tricolor sub-24 team.
According to some reports, Lozano would have at least a couple of important options in Mexican soccer: Chivas de Guadalajara and Pumas. Both teams face problems at the start of the Grita México 2021 tournament. The Sagrado Rebaño fans have requested the departure of Víctor Manuel Vucetich after the poor results this season and last.
The UNAM as a whole faces a crisis: it is in the last place of the general classification and, given the poor results, the departure of Andrés Lillini from the institution is rumored.
The Mexican Soccer Federation (FEMEXFUT) will also make an attempt to retain the talented Mexican coach in its structure. In this scenario, an opportunity would also open up in American football. According to certain journalistic versions, Jaime Lozano would be in the immediate plans of the Houston Dynamo of the MLS, a team that marches in the penultimate position of the Western Conference and has practically no chance of qualifying for the postseason.
Jaime Lozano already has experience as a coach for a first division team. The former player of Pumas, Cruz Azul and Tigres led the Gallos Blancos de Querétaro in the Clausura 2017, replacing Víctor Manuel Vucetich. The coach was dismissed on matchday 14 of the Apertura 2017, after a poor performance with the feathered ones.
In the event of reaching Chivas de Guadalajara, Lozano would once again replace ‘King Midas’ on a first division bench.
