No one ever said the offseason was a time to take things easy. Saturday has come with a big juicy rumor that could very well reshape how FC Dallas approaches this offseason.
Some BIG MLS coaching news: I'm told that Club Tijuana is set to hire Oscar Pareja as their new manager. Pareja will be leaving FC Dallas after five seasons as head coach. #MLS #DTID #Xolos https://t.co/BAxSKc52tT— Ives Galarcep (@SoccerByIves) November 17, 2018
The report states that Tijuana has been in the market for a new manager since parting ways with Argentine boss Diego Cocca following a run of poor results that left the Xolos near the bottom of the standings.
Pareja would be the club’s first English-speaking manager, something several rumors floating around Twitter state was something Tijuana was interested in having in their next manager.
The potential move would reunite Pareja with former Designed Player Fabian Castillo, who is currently doing quite well in Mexico.
This would certainly be a massive loss for FC Dallas as they look to rebuild an attack that struggled down the stretch in 2018.
No word from FC Dallas on this report but I would imagine the next few days will get interesting as the team wraps up their end-of-year training before the Thanksgiving holiday next week.
