Matias Almeyda seeks seismic shift for the San Jose Earthquakes

At River Plate, Banfield and Chivas, Matias Almeyda nursed ailing clubs back to good health – and titles. Now he looks to do something similar with the San Jose Earthquakes, who have not made the Conference Semifinals since 2012 and finished with just four wins in 2018. Despite opening the 2019 regular season with three losses, "El Pelado" remains patient, and true to his philosophy and proven formula as the Quakes get ready to host LAFC on Saturday (3:30 pm ET | Univision, Twitter in the US; MLS LIVE on DAZN in Canada).
