Following their quarterfinal exit at the hands of Pachuca, Gustavo Matosas and Club America have decided to part ways through mutual consent on Tuesday.
President of the club, Ricardo Pelaez, outlined differences in their transfer objectives as the reason for Matosas’ departure.
The Uruguayan arrived to Las Aguilas back in December and earned a second-place regular season finish with the team in the Clausura, with eight victories, five draws, and four defeats in 17 matches, before eventually falling to Pachuca in the Liguilla.
In addition, Matosas won the CONCACAF Champions League with the club in April.
Speaking to the press, Matosas said. “I don’t have any other words but those of gratitude for having been given the opportunity to manage America.”
“Sometimes the best way to solve your problems is for each one to take a different route.”
Matosas joins Daniel Guzman, Tomas Boy, Jose Guadalupe Cruz, and Luis Fernando Tena as managers that were dismissed by their club at the end of their season.
