Ortiz didn’t speak about it after the vacation in America began, but he will continue with his work and will attend the remaining week to plan the next tournament, which will include a full preseason for the international commitments that the club will have in the United States and the start of Liga MX next July.
Ferdinand delivered the best numbers for an internship in Coapawith only two defeats, although one of them meant the goodbye of the yellows in the championship, both Baños and the president of the Águilas, Emilio Azcárraga, were surprised by the union and tranquility that was seen in the group after the goodbye of Santiago Solari a couple of months ago.
Ortiz convinced the players of his commitment with actions such as being the first to arrive and the last to leave. The idea of Americanism that he had during his time as a player in the club also motivated the protagonists, in addition to a change of scheme that benefited the most talented and that consecrated them as one of the best defenses of the tournament.

The next challenge was Pachuca. The general leader took a 1-1 from Santa Úrsula, although it was the feathered ones who were wrong several opportunitiess in front of Óscar Ustari’s goal. In the second leg, Diego Valdés, at the beginning of the game, had to overtake América. In the end, the Magician’s mistake ended up costing him the tie with a resounding 3-0.
