Chivas could target Italian World Cup winner to replace Almeyda

Chivas has begun the search for Matias Almeyda’s replacement as it desperately struggles to get its nightmarish off-season back on track.

According to reports in Marca, Los Rojiblancos have identified the former Toluca manager Jose Cardozo as their top target.

However, Mauro Camoranesi is also a leading candidate. Camoranesi won the 2006 World Cup with Italy as a player.

Almeyda—who led the club to its first league title more than a decade—left the club last week after a falling out with owner Jorge Vergara over how the club was being run.

Several Chivas players are owed unpaid bonuses. They took to social media ahead of the CONCACAF Champions League final to protest about the lack of money, along with other issues.

It’s believed Almeyda was also unhappy with the club’s transfer strategy, with several big names expected to leave over the summer.

The Marca reports says Chivas is also considering José Cruz.
