The future of Víctor Manuel Vucetich as a Chivas coach is hanging by a thread. The Sacred Herd has started the Grita México 2021 tournament with several stumbles and after six dates it is in position 13 of the general classification.
In case of achieving an adverse result this Saturday against Necaxa, at the Akron Stadium, the rojiblanca directive will dispense with the services of ‘King Midas’. In recent weeks the name of Antonio Mohamed has sounded as one of the strongest options to take the reins of the team.
According to reports, El ‘Turco’ would be the preferred option for Ricardo Peláez, Chivas sports director, to try to rebound and get into the league. In the event that the Argentine technical director arrived at Guadalajara, he would seek to make some changes. Antonio Mohamed is distinguished by having a good relationship with his footballers and creating very close and united groups. The rojiblancos need these characteristics to aspire to turn their current crisis around. This would be one of your main letters of introduction.
In the same sense, Mohamed is characterized by being a technician who offers immediate results. The arrival of the former strategist of Monterrey, Celta de Vigo and Huracán can change the chip to certain footballers who are not presenting their best version with Chiverío. ‘Tony’ is a coach with great power of conviction and is one of the most successful winners in Mexican soccer in recent times. In his record he has three Liga MX championships: with Xolos de Tijuana, América and Monterrey.
The ‘Turk’ can provide a more balanced football proposal to Chivas. While Vucetich’s style of play is normally classified as defensive, the Argentine’s teams tend to be more balanced: they defend very well and are frontal in attack.
In the event that Antonio Mohamed arrived at Chivas, he would look for footballers like Fernando Beltrán, Cristian Calderón, Alejandro Mayorga or Gilberto Sepúlveda to regain confidence and have more minutes. These footballers didn’t count for much in the Vucetich process.
