With Ricardo Ferretti only being named the manager of the Mexican national team for four games including the crucial U.S.-Mexico matchup, it was only a matter of time before we found out who would lead El Tri in their quest for World Cup qualification.

And the wait has ended:

Today Brazilian club São Paulo has confirmed that Colombian coach Juan Carlos Osorio will be leaving them to take the position of Mexico’s national team manager.
