Liga MX: Antonio Mohamed ends tenure with Monterrey with no major titles
Antonio Mohamed and Monterrey ended their working relationship this Monday, May 7 and an era ended for the Northern Mexican team. Los Rayados were one of the most respected teams in Mexico’s top-flight division under the leadership of “El Turco”.
The team had an identity with Mohamed and was known as a side that was very ordered and liked to strike on the counter-attack. However, the team never really had any real success under the Argentine manager, a Copa MX title in the Apertura 2017 the only silverware Mohamed came away with in his tenure with the club.
“Turco” was with Los Regios since 2015 and his most notable moments were two Liga MX final defeats. One came in the Clausura 2016 against Diego Alonso and Pachuca and another came in the Apertura 2017 against archrivals Tigres UANL.
Monterrey was eliminated by Club Tijuana in the quarterfinals this season and that was the final straw for Rayados’ front office. Mohamed had been under the microscope since that loss to Tigres UANL in last season’s final and it seems like it was time to move on after his failure in the Clausura 2018.

It was incredible that the South American boss ended his time in Monterrey without at least a league title. Mohamed certainly had the means to win a Liga MX title with several talented teams over the years that featured players like Aviles Hurtado, Rogelio Funes Mori and Dorlan Pabon.
The Argentine manager will not struggle to find a job with another Liga MX team or abroad as he has had a very successful career that includes Liga MX titles with Club America and Club Tijuana.
