Juan Carlos Osorio, new Mexico coach

According to Sao Paulo FC, Colombian manager Juan Carlos Osorio is the new Mexican National Team manager.


The Brazilian club published an official statement this Tuesday penned by their president Carlos Miguel C. Aidar where he confirmed the much anticipated news ahead of the Mexican Federation's announcement. 


Osorio will succeed Miguel Herrera at the helm of El Tri. Manager Ricardo Ferreti is the appointed interim coach for the upcoming CONCACAF CUP match against the USMNT on Saturday. Osorio is expected to make an appearance in Pasadena. 


Here's the full statement:

I inform you that, on this day, I requested all directors to present a collective resignation. This will allow a recomposition of the Board, based on conversations with all political groups in the SPFC and the larger goal of PACIFICATION. There will be no more political infighting that add nothing to the life of our club. It's time for all of us são-paulinos, unite for the good of São Paulo FC institution


Today, I also received here in my office, the visit of Mr. Juan Carlos Osorio, who confirmed he is leaving the technical direction of the team to lead the Mexico National Team during the qualifiers for the next World Cup, a goal he had for a long time. I deeply regret this decision by Osorio, as he was developing a good job. I wish you good luck.


In the coming days we will announce the names of new directors as well as the new coach. Until then, I will not publicly say anything about the matter.


This will be the first time Osorio will be in charge of a National Team. He has previously managed clubs in MLS (Chicago Fire, NYRB), the Colombian league (Once Caldas, Atlético Nacional Millonarios), and Liga MX´s Puebla.
