Alejandro Hurtado left the MLS for the Spanish La Liga. He has left Chicago Fire to join Celta Vigo. The Chilean manager is one step closer to his dream of managing Sevilla.
He has joined his new club at a strange time with just three matches left of the La Liga season.
Vigo sit 14th in the league and safe from relegation. The club were predicted to finish 13th in the league this year so to see their previous manager sacked could be a sign of the ruthlessness of the board.
Nevertheless, these next three games could give an idea of the players we want to keep around the squad and those we wish to move on.
Let’s take a look at how our first three matches in charge of Vigo unfolded.
2030/31 Final Three Matches
vs Real Hispalis (away)
vs Getafe (away)
vs Atletico Madrid (home)
Unbeaten in our first three games as Celta Vigo boss is a very good achievement. Hurtado can be especially pleased with how his side recovered to draw against Atletico Madrid.
3 promising games under Hurtado’s leadership. Vigo finished 13th in the league with 44 points.
Building for the Future
Alejandro Hurtado’s Reputation
With the goal of this save being to win the Champions League with Sevilla, our manager Hurtado will need to build up enough reputation to be hired by the Spanish giants.
Sevilla have a reputation of 4 and a half stars and would look to hire a manager with a similar reputation. Unfortunately Alejandro Hurtado is some way off the upper echelon in managerial terms.
He’ll be looking to boost his rep with Celta Vigo before moving to Sevilla when the opportunity arises. It could well be a long tenure in Galicia before the dream move occurs.
It looks set to be a huge summer of transfer activity as Hurtado will aim to reignite this Vigo squad. Progression into Europe needs to be a priority, and although it may be unrealistic next season, it has to be the main aim for the next two seasons.
The squad needs fresh blood, can Hurtado bring in the right men to turn the Galician club into a European chasing side over the coming years?
