A former MLS head coach is now officially the manager for Mexico.
The Mexican Football Federation (FMF) made Juan Carlos Osorio the head coach of the national team Saturday, stating that he would take over starting Wednesday, as Mexico begins its World Cup qualifying campaign in November.
Current interim boss Ricardo ‘Tuca’ Ferreti will lead El Tri as it takes on the U.S. Men’s National Team in the CONCACAF Cup Saturday evening and against Panama in a friendly match Tuesday.
Osorio, 53, stepped down from his head coaching position at Brazilian outfit Sao Paulo four days ago, and his resume includes coaching stints at the New York Red Bulls and Chicago Fire in MLS, Liga MX side Puebla, and Colombian clubs Once Caldas and Atletico Nacional.
