Vucetich is favored to replace Tena

[MEXICO] Victor Vucetich, who led Monterrey to Concacaf Champions League titles in 2011, 2012 and 2013 before being fired in August, is the favorite to be named Mexico's new national team coach who will steer the troubled Tri through the end of the Hexagonal.

The Mexican federation has called a press conference for Thursday at which it will introduce Vucetich, according to multiple reports out of Mexico.

The 58-year-old Vucetich was reportedly offered the national team coaching job in 2010 but turned it down for personal reasons. He's won Mexican league titles at Leon, UAG and Pachuca in addition to Monterrey in a coaching career that has seen him coach at 10 clubs.

Luis Fernando Tena replaced Jose Manuel de la Torre after Mexico's 2-1 loss to Honduras, but Tena said he was charged with coaching El Tri in one game, Tuesday's qualifier against the USA in Columbus.

After a dispirited Mexico team dropped a fourth Dos a Cero decision in Columbus, the chances of Tena, the coach of Mexico's 2012 Olympic gold-medal team, dropped considerably.

Mexico sits in fifth place, behind Panama on goals socored, with games to play against the Canaleros in Mexico City and at Costa Rica.
