It has become apparent Dennis de Kloese will leave his position as the director of the Mexican National Team.

Recently the El Tri boss was spotted at a Christmas dinner gathering, and in a now deleted Instagram post Club America and team physiotherist Carlos Pecanha nararates, “Big Hug Denis. Good luck in everything!” as de Kloese poses with a personalized Mexico jersey accompanied by sports director Gerardo Torrado and Guillermo Cantú.

This revelation comes days after strong rumors linked the FMF director with a future move up north to head the LA Galaxy’s soccer operations.

It must be noted that for all the focus on LA, a fresh start makes sense for de Kloese as well. A former executive with Chivas USA, de Kloese must be eager to exert his influence on a real MLS club. And with Tata Martino soon joining the federation, his future job security could be compromised.

We’ll keep you updated.
