Monterrey achieved what no one else could and convinced Javier Aguirre to return to coach in Mexico after they reached an agreement to take the reins of the team for the 2021 Clausura after the departure of Antonio Mohamed.

Mexican media report that Aguirre and Rayados de Monterrey agreed on a three-year contract, looking for a stable project and gave them the 'yes' to the counteroffer in a meeting with the Albiazul board of directors this Thursday afternoon.

It is reported that Aldo de Nigris would have a position in Aguirre's coaching staff as a technical assistant, a man identified with the Monterrey club and who was expected to start the preseason in case a coach did not arrive before December 10. All that remains is for Aguirre to sign his name to be officially presented by La Pandilla.

This would mark his return to Mexican soccer, since he hasn't coached in the country since 2010 when he was with the Mexican National Team for the World Cup in South Africa.
