Toluca and Santos Laguna , led by Hernán Cristante and Roberto Dante Siboldi , respectively, will define the Mexican soccer champion at Estadio Nemesio Díez on Sunday , after 2-1 of the first leg in favor of the 'Guerreros' . Both seek to be crowned in their first League Final and this gives rise to note that very rarely had two technical debutants in the last phase of Liguilla. Cristante and Siboldi are first-timers in a Liga MX Final and only in five other occasions in short tournaments, had this happened in the Mexican First Division. In the '97 Summer tournament, the 'Tuca' Ferretti disputed, at 43, his first League Final against Toros Neza , then commanded by the newcomer as coach in this phase of the 'big party', Enrique Meza -ganó the Brazilian for a global score of 7-2.
Likewise, in the 2002 Apertura, Alberto Jorge reached his first Final in charge of Toluca, facing Morelia by Rubén Omar Romano , who was also debuting at the helm of the Michoacán players and who lost his first Final against the choriceros after a global 4-2. In the Clausura 2004, Pumas and Chivas defined the championship of that semester of the year under the technical direction of two coaches who were competing in their first League Final in the Aztec football. It was the 'Pentapichichi' Hugo Sanchez and the Dutchman Hans Westerhof , whose team succumbed to the Auriazules, after the championship was decided in penalties after a 1-1 on the global, for a 5-4 in favor of the felines from the eleven steps Sánchez Márquez would get the two league titles that year, in front of the Pedregal box.Bet on your favourite team with premium apuestas de futbol.
In the 2005 Clausura, Daniel Guzmán and Mario Carrillo faced each other as technical directors, both in their first time in the last series of the Liguilla. The 'Travieso' directed Estudiantes Tecos and Carrillo to América , who prevailed 7-4 overall in the Final of Mexican football, which meant the tenth title for the Eagles in the professional era. Also, in the Clausura Tournament 2011, Guillermo Vázquez (Pumas) and Tomás Boy (Monarcas) had their presentation in a League Final.
The funny thing is that, while the feline helmsman had been directing for only five years, 'El Jefe' already had 21 in the profession. Memo Vazquez won the title in that contest, after a 3-2 in the overall, leaving Boy with the desire and date, he has not tasted the honeys of being champion as technical director.
