Mexico Chases Big Names for Sanchez Replacement
Los Angeles Times, April 17th, 2008 4PM

MOST READ


The Los Angeles Times' Grahame L. Jones reveals Mexico's "astonishingly unrealistic wish list" of new coaches, including Portugal's Luiz Felipe Scolari, who coached Brazil to the 2002 World Cup title, Marcello Lippi, who coached Italy to the 2006 World Cup title, former Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho, and former Mexico and current Atletico Madrid coach Javier Aguirre.

Apparently, Decio de Maria, the general secretary of the Mexican soccer federation, and other Mexican soccer officials are in Europe sounding out the potentials; Scolari and Aguirre, both currently employed, have already said no. Meanwhile, Mourinho and Lippi, who do not have jobs, will have their pick of top European clubs (believed to be their preference to coaching a national team) once the current season ends.

Jones says that former Argentina coach Jose Pekerman is a more likely scenario for El Tri, as he is currently coaching Toluca in the Mexican first division and would make the perfect choice for grooming Mexico's young talent, which he did so famously with Argentina.
