The Atletico Mineiro communicated on their social networks the hiring of Anthony Mohamed as the new coach of the first team until the end of the 2022 season. An interesting addition to replace Cuca, who left the club after becoming champion of the Brasileirao.
The Argentine coach, who had a short stint in La Liga at Celta de Vigo from May to November 2018 (3 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses in 13 games), will have his first experience in Brazilian football, where he will have the challenge to repeat managing the most talented squad in South America, repeat the Brasileirao title and win the Conmebol Libertadores Cup, the club’s goal for a couple of years.
A signing to win the Libertadores
Antonio Mohamed arrives at Atlético Mineiro with many titles behind him. Champion of the 2010 Copa Sudamericana with Independiente de Avellanada, and champion of Mexico on multiple occasions: Apertura 2012 with Xolos de Tijuana, Apertura 2014 in America, Liga MX 2019, Apertura 2017 and Copa MX 2019/20 with Rayados de Monterrey.
The Gallic yesterday announced the signing of Diego Godín as a free agent after ending his contract with Cagliari. It will also have in its squad players of the stature of Hulk, Eduardo Vargas, Nacho Fernández, Matías Zaracho and Jefferson Savarino.
The Argentine prioritizes the defensive organization. Always seek to form teams that position themselves in the middle block to recover and attack quickly. Bet on the direct game to progress with speed, adding that he likes to play with systems with double points: 1-4-4-2 or 1-4-1-3-2. Schemes that can be positive for a team with so much offensive talent and that needs to enhance their work without the ball. Doubts appear due to the management of the campus.
