TheAfter just over a year in the position in which he won the league title, Jaime Urdiales has resigned as Cruz Azul’s sporting director, according to the leadership of the current Mexican champion.
Ordiales arrived at La Maquina at Clausura 2020 to replace Ricardo Peláez. Under his management, the capital club held the signings of Luis Romo and Uruguayan Ignacio Rivero, both of whom are fixed pieces in the team that was crowned last May; He also signed coach Juan Reynoso after the resignation of Robert Dante Siboldi last December.
“We thank Jaime for the work he has done to create a strong and personal team that has achieved one of the most important goals in the team’s recent history,” said Victor Manuel Velasquez, Chairman of the Team Board.
The captain, who took office in April of this year following the departure of Guillermo Alvarez accused of fraud and money laundering, players and fans will remember his brilliant management as part of the board of directors that achieved the ninth star.
Prior to his coronation in the recent Guardians 2021 Championship, Cruz Azul fought 23 consecutive years without being able to claim the league title. The longest drought was not guaranteed by one of the four most famous clubs in Mexico.
Ordiales was appointed by Alvarez and was the last remaining management position for someone close to the previous administration. Velasquez said Jaime was invited to stay in a lower position as a company advisor, but away from the first team, and he didn’t accept it.
Ordiales has not provided a transcript of his departure.

Urbelin Pineda will leave La Maquina
Orbelín Pineda refuses to accept renewal offers with Cruz Azul, while, according to media in Spain, the midfielder’s agent is already negotiating with Celta de Vigo.
According to ESPN, the player does not intend to emigrate to another Mexican team. 25-year-old Pineda’s contract with La Maquina expires on December 31, which is why the regulations have already allowed him, for a week, to negotiate and, eventually, leave as a free player from January 1, 2022; It could also come out this summer if Cruz Azul agrees to his transfer.
