At 75 years old, Luiz Felipe Scolari could be close to returning to the national team’s bench almost ten years later. After leaving the position in July 2014 as the coach of the Seleção, the veteran strategist went through teams such as Palmeiras, Grêmio, Athletico Paranaense, and more recently, Atlético Mineiro.

However, after mutually terminating his contract with the Minas Gerais team, Felipão is now rumored to be the new head coach of the Mexican national team, as reported by the Rádio Grenal media outlet.

Agreement in sight? Luiz Felipe Scolari is sought after by the Mexican National Team

Journalist Guto Lopes from Rádio Grenal recently released the exclusive report, stating that the agreement between the Mexican National Team and Felipão would already be practically closed and that only the official announcement would be pending.

Currently, the Mexican national team is led by Jaime Lozano, but his performance at the helm of the “Tri” is reportedly raising many doubts among the board, and the painful 0-2 defeat to the United States in the Nations League final could have been the final straw.

Guto Lopes confidently asserts that Luiz Felipe Scolari will be the new coach of the Mexican national team, a team that will compete in the Copa América next June.

So far, neither the FMF nor anyone from Felipão’s circle has confirmed or denied the news, so we will have to wait to see if this is just a rumor or a world-class exclusive.
