The experienced coach Ricardo ‘Tuca’ Ferretti confirmed this Wednesday that he will become the new coach of Cruz Azulhistorical of Liga MX plunged into a crisis which has him in the last three places of the 2023 Closing Tournament classification of Liga MX.
At the Mexico City airport, the boss smiled and politely attended the members of the press present to ask them about their feelings when they were about to take on another challenge in Liga MX.
“I am very happy to be here, with the confidence of doing a good job so that the fans are satisfied (…) It is an excellent opportunity, Cruz Azul is one of the four greats in the country,” he said.
Asked how he would propose changes in a team that has barely added 4 points in 6 games, he confessed that He knows very little about the intern since he has only seen them on television.
Likewise, he made it very clear that although he works with long-term projects, “no one is eternal” and his permanence as technical director of the “Machine” will be determined by the results: “What rules here are the results”.
“The board asks me to succeed, for the team to succeed (…) Obviously a big team is always waiting to be champion”
ferretti has the mission of rescuing a Cruz Azul that seems to be in free fall after the humiliating 7-0 suffered last 2022 against the Águilas del América in the Opening of Cruz Azul, a task that Raúl ‘Potro’ Gutiérrez could not fulfill and was fired a few days ago for this reason.
The capital team was champion of the 2021 Opening Tournament of the MX League with the Peruvian Juan Reynoso on the bench; When it seemed that there was stability, Jaime Ordiales returned to the Sports Presidency of Cruz Azul and his first victim was Álvaro Davila, who resigned from management due to the existing tension, and then at the end of the Clausura 2022 he charged Reynoso to appoint a Diego Aguirre who never showed what he promised the club and his fans when he was presented.
