The president of the Lion, Jesús Martínez Murguía, recognized that Ignacio Ambriz always gave him “long” to finalize his renovation, regardless of the fact that the emeralds were willing to make an economic effort to keep him on the campus of the current champion.

“Since the last league, I have approached him, we have not had an agreement, they have been long, he can answer it for you. We are focused on defending our title, it has cost us a lot, he can answer you, he in a better way. We remain united, because we are professional people, this hobby deserves respect, I can tell you that we closed on good terms, looking for the best for what is coming, we are going to defend this title to the death, the best will come for us “, said Jesús Martínez Murguía, president of León.

Ambriz was for 3 years with the emeralds and the management of León was looking for an agreement of “2 or 3 more years”, because the coach’s contract expires in a month. The current champion coach did not want to continue with the Panzas Verdes.

“I spoke with his representative, we have had many talks, in the end it is normal, you cannot always agree, we presented him with an interesting project, in the end they were long, a decision was never made and we see what the future is for the team “.

The emeralds are currently in playoff positions and a combination of results could put them directly into the league. Ambriz will seek to win the two-time championship with the León and then will say goodbye to the institution in which he was champion.

“Sure my cell phone will be rumbling, who does not want to come to this team?”said Jesús Martínez. “We do not have any coach contemplated, we are focused on supporting Nacho, his players, which has cost us many years of effort, going into details would not make sense, we made an important effort, Nacho gave us a lot, he had a lot to do with it. Contract ends in a month, he will do his best to defend his work. We are going to death to defend the title “, he complemented.

A considerable salary increase and the renewal of the squad would have been the breaking point between Ignacio Ambriz and the León board of directors, it could be known from a source close to the current former technical body of the Emeralds.

Ambriz wanted to renew his contract on the condition that some players leave that were no longer to his liking, plus he was asking for more money, which the directive did not want to grant either.

In León, players like the goalkeeper will end their contract next June Rodolfo Cota, the Argentine striker Emanuel Gigiotti and the Ecuadorian Angel Mena, a goal guarantee for the emeralds since he joined the team and who, moreover, is the best scorer in this tournament, with six goals.

This was known to Nacho Ambriz, but his intention was to renew the squad as much as possible, which the board denied him, given that many of his players have contracts for several years, as Jesús Martínez Murguía decided to sign them for 2 or 3 years, as a way to motivate them, so it was more difficult to break that kind of commitment in times of economic losses due to the pandemic, than to give way to the coach.
