ESPN presents the technicians in Liga MX whose performance has disappointed in the Apertura 2021 and keeps them on the ‘tightrope’
Héctor Altamirano became the first coach to be dismissed so far in the 2021 Apertura of the MX LeagueHowever, the list of coaches who are on the ‘tightrope’ has other names written on it, since Chivas, Cougars, Tijuana, Puebla and FC Juárez They march in the lower zone of the competition after six days.
Victor Manuel Vucetich
With a third of the tournament passed, Vucetich goes through low hours on the Chivas bench, because the Flock has not won since the second date – against Puebla, another team with a debacle – and is located in thirteenth position with six points.
As if the pressure were not enough, the team’s sports director, Ricardo Peláez, said that he does not rule out changes in the near future, since it gives him “impotence to win at home” in everything that goes on in the tournament.
“It bothers me to see how we cannot be constant. We play a good game and two bad ones. It is incredible, however, and beyond criticism, I am convinced that this squad has enough quality to be competitive,” he said in a video released through social networks.
The Pumas strategist released pressure with the victory this Saturday 2 to 0 against Puebla, however, he is far from what he achieved with the team in Guard1anes 2020, after reaching the final of the tournament.
The departure of key players in Pumas such as Juan Pablo Vigón, Facundo Waller, Juan Iturbe Luis Fernando Quintana, Bryan Mendoza and Brian Figueroa have conditioned the Auriazul team, which supplied their figures at almost zero cost.
“We dedicate the triumph to the people and there is a great job from all of us with the board and it is a gift for them. It doesn’t bother me in the least and they are amateurs. I am not a person to be in everyone’s judgment and turn every positive thing in revenge. We need them and hopefully we add and give them joy ”, said the Argentine strategist after the most recent triumph of the team.
The ‘Tuca’ suffers to find the step with FC Juárez, after a successful management close to eleven years in TigresWell, he has not won so far in the tournament – he has four defeats and two draws – and is in the penultimate place in the table with two points.
In the Apertura 2021, FC Juárez has fallen against Toluca (1–3), Atlas (2-0), América (1-2), Necaxa (1-0) and tied against Chivas (2-2) and Tijuana (1-1), however, Ferretti defends their style of play and points out that the situation they are going through is due to the lack of forwards.
“Today I could not use any forward center, we lacked ‘punch’, but I think that oversights make a difference, or the ability of a striker to reverse the situation … I think we deserved at least the draw,” he said after the defeat against Necaxa.
Robert Dante Siboldi
The Uruguayan coach is located in the basement of the classification with Tijuana, equaled by two points with FC Juárez, product of two draws, four defeats and no victory in sight since his arrival at the Mexican border with the United States.
Xolos has fallen against Tigres (1-2), León (2-1), Toluca (0-2), América (2-0), and tied with FC Juárez (1-1) and Puebla with the same score.
“The feeling is of sadness, of helplessness because the results are not given to us. On the other hand, satisfied with the delivery of the boys, America was controlled and at the end of the match due to a mistake, there was a penalty and they scored us”, He mentioned after the stumble in front of the Eagles.
The Puebla coach became the surprise of the last tournament, as he led the team to the semifinals, in which he fell face to face with the Sun against Santos Laguna, however, this semester has turned into a negative of said postcard, since he has not won after six dates, he has three defeats and the same number of draws.
The ‘Strip’ suffered three significant casualties, with the departure of Santiago Ormeño and Omar Fernández to León, as well as Salvador Reyes to América. In the area of transfers, they only signed Ramón Juárez and Fernando Aristeguieta.
“It seems stupid to me that I considered that (his dismissal), but it would not seem like that to me. You would have to talk to the people in charge and I don’t think they make that question,” he said at a press conference and also stressed that “it is very necessary “one more reinforcement before the transfer market closes, because” there were casualties “in the pillars of the starting eleven.
