Despite finishing the 2014 Apertura tournament at the top of the Liga MX table, things haven't been going smoothly for Club America. Having finished the regular season with a four- game winless streak, things didn't get any easier for the capital side after a loss against an eight seeded Pumas UNAM in the Liguilla quarter-finals.
Following their first-leg loss, many America fans called for the dismissal of manager Antonio Mohamed; arguing his playing style limited the squad's potential. It didn't help that reports from various Mexican media claimed recently resigned Leon manager, Gustavo Matosas, is in line to take over the America bench.
The rumors did not sit well with the Argentine manager. Following his side's 1-0 win in the second leg of the quarterfinals, Mohamed attended the post-game press conference with a victorious attitude.
