Ex-Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari will return to the bench at Club America, the Mexican giants confirmed on Tuesday.
America has been without a coach since before Christmas, when Miguel Herrera released it after Los Angeles FC left the CONCACAF Champions League.
And they have now turned to Solari, who spent more than a decade as a player and coach in both youth and senior positions at the Bernabeu before finally breaking ties with merengue in March 2019.
« Club America can show that it has agreed with manager Santiago Solari to take the reins of the first team ahead of the Guardianes 2021 tournament, » the Liga MX team said in a statement.
American President Santiago Banos added: « We recognize that Solari has the perfect profile for our sports project.
« During his career as a player and coach, he has successfully met the demands and goals of teams like America, whose sole goal is the title. «
The Argentine, who represented Madrid as a player between 2005 and 2010 during a professional career that included stints at Inter, Atletico and River Plate, started working with the youth department of the Spanish giants at Cadete B level in 2013.
He worked his way up through the Blanco age groups until he took over the Castilla Feeder Team in 2016 and spent two seasons in the third Segunda Division B..
And when Zinedine Zidane’s successor at bench Julen Lopetegui was sacked just weeks after the start of the 2018/19 season, Solari was considered a logical choice to support Madrid until the end of the season.
However, unlike the French who followed the same path, Solari did not succeed at the Bernabeu.
In March 2019, after less than five months in office, the Argentine was relieved of his duties by Ajax after Madrid left the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
He is now resuming his coaching career in Mexico City, where he is no stranger who played at the end of his time on the pitch with America’s neighbors Atlante.
