‘Potro’ Gutiérrez receives ultimatum
His team perched near the bottom of the table and will now be forced to beat Toluca as pressure mounts on the coach.
Cruz Azul have had a terrible start to Clausura 2023. No wins in five games and sat in the penultimate place overall. After the poor results, the Raúl ‘Potro’ Gutiérrez is in the eye of the storm and could be out the door if the next game doesn’t see a change in fortune.
According to information in Diario Récord, the board of directors of La Noria is already looking for a new boss to take charge of the team for the remainder of the competition. The same source revealed that former player Juan Francisco Palencia is the number one candidate, but for now there is nothing concrete.
The sports outlet also revealed that Potro had asked for an opportunity to maintain his dream of leading the team in the first division. Therefore, they gave him an ultimatum: lose and you’re out, win and you can stay, at least until the next game.
After the disastrous set of results, fans have expressed their annoyance both at the Azteca Stadium and on social media. The team had a good preseason, winning the cup against Chivas but the start of this tournament has condemned the former under-17 world champion coach.
With just a single point, Cruz Azul fans need an immediate turnaround.
