FIFA and Liga MX dates do not seem to go hand in hand. But not only because of the pause of activity and rhythm that it causes in the teams' campuses, but also because of the scandals that the institutions suffer in these parates.
In the first week of September, where Mexico faced the United States (3-0) and Argentina (0-4), there was a sultry situation in Cruz Azul. The directive of The Machine decided to fire Pedro Caixinha and assumed Robert Dante Siboldi. In turn, Ricardo Pelaez left the institution as Sports Director.
For the same days, Atletico de San Luis controversially threw Alfonso Sosa, a good campaign. Instead, Gustavo Matosas appeared to put the signature and be the new coach. We all know the end of this story.
In Veracruz there was also movement: Enrique Meza ceased to be the technical director and was replaced by Enrique Lopez Zarza. On the other hand, Raul Arias assumed as Sports Vice President of the Red Sharks.
A month later and also in Los Escualos came the great controversy that still stands. The lack of payments by Fidel Kuri to the club workers and their players, made the latter protest historically. In front of Tigres, in the return of the Liga MX after the break, they remained still in the first minutes.
Days after Mexico's game against Panama, the last embarrassing act on the list took place. The city of Culiacan lived a very tense and terrifying moment, which caused the meeting between Dorados and Atlante to be suspended.
