Former Swansea manager Michael Laudrup could become the next person in charge of the Mexican national team, who are in search of a new candidate after recently decided to part company with Miguel Herrera.
Despite results being extremely good under Herrera, the national team decided not to continue with the 47-year-old. Some of his standout achievements including the World Cup 2014 and the recent Copa America 2015. He is alleged to have fought with a journalist. Herrera was relieved from his duties just two days after guiding Mexico to a victory at theCONCACAF Gold Cup. This was the first major title won by Mexico since 2011.
On the pitch, Herrera was one of the finest managers Mexico have had in recent times. It will be a major task to replace such a successful manager. It appears that the Mexican national football Federation have turned their eye towards an attractive name like Laudrup. After his extremely successful spell in English football, the 51-year-old is believed to be keen on returning to the limelight. Since being sacked by Swansea towards the end of 2014, he went on to manage Middle East club Lekhwiya for a short-term. Now, Laudrup is looking for his next managerial job, which makes him a potential candidate.
The former Barcelona man is also believed to be keen on taking over the Mexican national team, who could be one of the potential dark horses in upcoming South American and North American tournaments. Mexico have a number of players at the peak of the careers like Javier Hernandez, Carlos Vela and Giovanni dos Santos. Laudrup has been successful wherever he has been and this includes his last job at Lekhwiya, where he won the Qatari league title. Yet, Laudrup has not been able to sustain this success for an extended period.
