Ex-Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari sacked by Club America

Former Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari has been sacked by Club America.

After the Águilas' last game, a 1-1 draw with a last-minute goal by Querétaro, América's board decided to put an end to Solari's tenure in Mexico, which began with almost unbeatable numbers but ended with a streak of negative results.

Solari arrived in Mexico to coach América in 2021, leading the most winning team in the Mexican league for two and a half tournaments, with 13 league titles.

In his first tournament, the Clausura Guardianes 2021, Solari managed the team to finish second in the overall standings with 38 points, after 12 wins, two draws and three defeats, but the Águilas were eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Liguilla.

For the Apertura 2021, América led the competition with 35 points, thanks to 10 wins and five draws, but were again eliminated in the Quarterfinals, this time to one of their most hated rivals, Pumas.
