Uruguayan Diego Alonso will stop training Inter Miami CF, which has had a regular performance during its inaugural season in Major League Soccer (MLS) in the United States, the institution reported on Thursday, while the media pointed out that British Phil Neville may replace it.
The decision has been by mutual agreement, Inter Miami CF said in a statement, which thanked the Uruguayan for the work carried out.
The club, which is owned by former English player David Beckham, had seven wins, three draws and thirteen defeats in the 2020 season during its participation in the Eastern Conference, where it finished in tenth position.
The club, in which Argentine Gonzalo Higuaín plays, was eliminated from the MLS Cup playoffs on November 20.
Club owner-manager Jorge Mas thanked Alonso for his work during the inaugural season and said the decision to untie him was “difficult” but is “the right step.”
“We have great expectations for Inter Miami in the short and long term,” he added in a statement made in the institution’s statement.
“Going through this inaugural season’s trip with Inter Miami has been an incredible experience and I am grateful to the group of owners for the opportunity,” said the former striker, who in January 2020 began his career at the helm of this team with the goal of “win, win, win.”
In his first training session, Alonso even said that his goal was to win the Concacaf Champions League, the most important soccer club tournament in North America, Central America and the Caribbean.
Alonso’s dismissal is made official amid information from media such as ESPN, according to which the Inter Miami board is studying to sign British Phil Neville as the new technical director for the 2021 season.
Beckham has had conversations with who his Manchester United teammate was, according to the outlet.. EFE. (JL).
