Antonio Mohamed Returns to Monterrey

Monterrey has announced Antonio Mohamed as their new head coach, replacing Diego Alonso.

Mohamed previously coached the Rayados from 2015-2018; he led them to the league final twice, but couldn’t win them a Liga MX title – although he did win the Apertura 2017 Copa MX with Monterrey.

The Rayados have been struggling in league play this season; they’re currently sitting 14th with five wins, seven losses, and one draw, and a home loss to rivals Tigres UANL in the Clasico Regio was the last straw for Alonso’s tenure.

Enrique Meza Resigns as Veracruz Coach

After falling 5-0 to Querétaro on Tuesday, Enrique Meza has tendered his resignation as head coach of Veracruz.

The beleaguered club is in the midst of a 33-game winless run, with their last league victory coming more than a year ago (a 1-0 win against Tijuana on August 25, 2018). In the current Apertura 2019 season, they have just one point from six games and have lost their last five in a row.

Meza, who took over as coach in June, was unable to right the ship. In a press conference, he said he had done everything “humanly possible” to get the Tiburones Rojos back on track.
