Vucetich ready to return to management

The former Mexico national team boss is ready for a return to coaching after a one-month spell in charge of El Tri last fall

Former Monterrey coach Victor Manuel Vucetich is ready to return to the game, 10 months after being unceremoniously ditched by the Mexican national team.

“I’ve had offers, but for issues of space and personal situations, I’ve not been able to take any,” Vucetich told Goal Mexico in an exclusive interview. “I hope to return very soon.”

Vucetich said he has used the time since leaving El Tri for introspection and to recharge his batteries. He also admitted that there were talks with Chivas, but the club decided to go in a different direction.

“King Midas” – as Vucetich is known for his propensity for winning trophies – said he doesn’t harbor ill will towards the Mexican soccer federation (FMF) after the way he left El Tri, but did criticize the way the game in Mexico is run in general.

“It’s not so much being upset with the Mexican federation,” explained the 55-year-old. “It is a logical situation, when you see how things are run in Mexican football.”

Vucetich added that he had been offered the job of national team coach previously, but had turned it down and said that he needed more than the two games in charge to change a situation that saw Mexico on the brink of being eliminated from the World Cup.
