Jaime Lozano admits he's keen on taking the Chivas job

Chivas had a lot of ups and downs under manager Víctor Manuel Vucetich and after less than two years the bosses decided to part ways halfway through the current tournament. Marcelo Michel Leaño was appointed as the interim head coach and he managed to take the team to the first round of the playoffs after finishing in 10th place.

Chivas will go on the road and play against Puebla at the Estadio Cuauhtémoc on 20 November. This is a single elimination match so the winner moves on and the loser sees their season come to an end. Regardless of the result, Leaño will return as Chivas head coach next tournament, but anything can change before the summer.

Lozano wants to manage Guadalajara

Jaime Lozano did a good job managing the Mexican Olympic team during the summer and won the bronze medal in the soccer tournament of Tokyo 2020. Lozano decided that he was going to part ways with the Mexican Soccer Federation regardless of the results in Tokyo and he has been looking for a new challenge since.

When asked about his future during an interview with Azteca Deportes, the young head coach said that it would be a great challenge to manage Chivas. “Who doesn’t want to manage Chivas. They are a great team and have really good players. I love the fact that it is a Mexican-based team and I would take the job if offered.
