After being eliminated in the second round of the 2010 World Cup, and after two interim coaches, México is still looking for a national soccer coach.
Victor Manuel Vucetich says he is turning down the chance of succeeding Javier Aguirre because of family reasons. That leaves Jose Manuel De La Torre as the only candidate.
Vucetich will remain coach of the Mexican club Monterrey Rayados. He said at a news conference that the national coaching job was a unique opportunity, but personal matters left him no choice.
The Mexican soccer federation had called a meeting of club owners for Monday to choose between Vucetich and Toluca coach De La Torre as a permanent successor to Aguirre.
