Once the Liga MX Closing Tournament 2022 concludes, several teams are putting together their project and strategy for the next five years, including the Cruz Azul, which recently fired Juan Reynoso and is in search of the next owner of his bench.

The separation of the Peruvian coach meant for ‘La Maquina’ the closing of a cycle of stability that began with the title of the Closing Tournament 2021.

Since he returned to Cruz Azul, the sports director Jaime Ordiales had to face the resistance of different factors within the club and one of those was his discrepancies with Reynosowith whom he always had disagreements, according to some Mexican media.
