Almeyda leaves his future up in the air with San Jose Earthquakes
The Argentine coach has not renewed his contract with the Major League Soccer side and he could leave as a free agent at the end of the season.
Matías Almeyda is having a complicated 2021 Major League Soccer season with San Jose Earthquakes. They lost 3-1 against Los Angeles FC on Saturday are currently out of the playoff picture. The Earthquakes are in 10th place with 33 points, eight away from a playoff spot in the Western Conference with five games left of the regular season.
Almeyda could leave club
The Argentine manager arrived in San Jose in 2018 and has led the team to the playoffs ever since then, but now they are in a tough position with the regular season coming to an end and are far behind the playoff picture. This could end his time in Major League Soccer with the campaign coming to an end.
“My future is in the hands of the owner John Fisher. I have spoken with him a lot and will continue to talk to him once the regular season ends. Right now is not the moment to talk about my future and I have been very sincere with the owner. I am an employee of the Earthquakes and if the owner is not happy with me then I will leave. I want to win the MLS Cup with San Jose, but it has been complicated to do that in my time here,” said Almeyda after losing 3-1 to LAFC on Saturday.
Contract coming to an end
Almeyda’s contract with the San Jose Earthquakes ends in December and there have been no talks about extending his time with the MLS side. It has been rumored that he could return to Chivas if the negotiations fall apart with the Earthquakes.
