MOST COMMENTED

The Mexican soccer federation (FMF) on Monday confirmed that Club America coach Miguel Herrera will coach the national team at the World Cup finals in Brazil next year. Herrera is El Tri’s fourth coach since September, having been named head coach prior to Mexico’s 9-3 aggregate win in a home-and-away intercontinental playoff series against New Zealand last month.

"In the meeting, the proposal was put forward for Miguel Herrera as national team coach with the appointment of Ricardo Pelaez as sporting director," FMF general manager Hector Gonzalez Inarritu said.

Herrera will remain Club America coach, taking up his national team duties at the end of the Mexican Apertura championship on Dec. 15th. Inarritu noted that his contract has no end date. "We want a good preparation for the World Cup. You know the contracts are without an end date, we like continuity."

Mexico fired former coach Jose Manuel de la Torre in September following a loss to Honduras in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, and his successor, Fernando Tena, stepped down after a defeat to the United States in Mexico’s next qualifier. Victor Vucetich then took over for the final two group games before being replaced by Herrera.
