Miguel Herrera renewing his contract with Club América until 2024 means he remains on course to achieve further success there. His second reign as the Mexican club’s manager started in 2017, and there are three records he hopes to break. The most matches in charge of a Mexican club – he is nearing Rafael Garza’s 295; the most trophy wins – his four have already earned him parity with Raúl Cárdenas and Jorge Vieiria; and, if he reaches the end of his present contract, his seven years with América will make him their longest-serving manager.
Herrera also aims to win the Concacaf Champions League, and for the first time. América reached the competition’s quarter finals before the coronavirus pandemic largely halted the professional football calendar.
