Miguel Herrera reveals he's been contacted in the past by MLS clubs

Is Miguel Herrera open to a move to coaching in Major League Soccer? The Club América manager said he’s been contacted in the past and doesn’t rule it out in the future.

“Maybe, why not?” Herrera told Goal.com at the Concacaf Champions League draw in Mexico City Monday night. “They’ve called me before, but I’m coaching América and I’m really happy here.”

Piojo lauded MLS as a league that’s made progress by signing big players, and coaches alike. His side fell to Atlanta United in a thrilling Campeones Cup final at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and a rematch is possible should the teams navigate through the CCL Round of 16.

"It’s growing by taking giant steps forward. It’s a league that is on a really good path toward becoming a powerful, strong league," he said. "They’re showing it economically. I think you’ve seen that with three or four clubs already opening their wallet with how they’re bringing in coaches, bringing in players.

"If that keeps changing, we’re going to have a lot more competition because the middle portion of their rosters, that’s the part that still hasn’t finished raising its level.

”But it’s also a young league. We can’t say they’re just doing everything perfectly. It’s a young league, but it’s growing really, really well.”
