Juan Carlos Osorio Leaves El Tri

Juan Carlos Osorio has parted ways with the Mexican national team. The Colombian manager has turned down contract extension offers from the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) following the 2018 World Cup, where El Tri bowed out in the Round of Sixteen.

Under Osorio’s direction, Mexico amassed a record of 33 wins, 10 losses, and nine draws in 52 games. While Osorio led Mexico to some famous results, such as a 1-0 win against Germany to open the World Cup, there were also some heavy defeats, including a 7-0 loss to Chile in the 2016 Copa América.

Osorio’s penchant for tinkering with the lineup and rotating players into different positions often put him at odds with fans and the Mexican media, regardless of individual results.

The new FMF president, Yon de Luisa, will now lead the search for a new head coach for the national team.

Meanwhile, rumor has Osorio linked with the USMNT coaching job as well as Colombia, should José Pekerman step down.
