Ramos: Club America on a mission

Liga MX

America may rue Mohamed decision

Liga MX

Club America is a team on a mission

Pablo Aguilar and Club America won their second title in 18 months in Sunday night's triumph over Tigres.
Pablo Aguilar and Club America won their second title in 18 months in Sunday night's triumph over Tigres.

LOS ANGELES -- Clausura 2008: pulling up the rear with 11 points. Apertura 2011: penultimate with just 15 points.

América have been to the pits of despair in the Mexican league. They have been the butt of everyone's jokes, but now they stand with their heads held high. Today, it has two titles under its belt and has been a runner-up in the past four tournaments. And this is all down to the fact that they have a clear mission.

They let head coach Antonio Mohamed go, not renewing his contract....

America could one day rue decision to force out Mohamed

The much-maligned Antonio Mohamed departs Club America as a champion.

As much as fans of Las Aguilas felt the thrills and excitement of their beloved Club America winning an unprecedented 12th Mexican championship on Sunday, for more than a few, the ecstasy of celebration was partly tempered by a few pangs of regret. They won't have Antonio "Turco" Mohamed to kick around anymore. The coach who led the team to the historic achievement has been forced out.

It was Oscar Wilde who revealed a simple truth; "When the gods wish to punish us, they answer our prayers."

Three Points: Club America vs. Tigres U.A.N.L.

Club America celebrate after Michael Arroyo's opening goal.

Three quick thoughts from Club America's 3-0 win over U.A.N.L. Tigres that secured Las Aguilas the Liga MX Apertura title, the club's record 12th Liga MX crown.

1. Mohamed gets the last laugh

Club America's first game in the Apertura 2014 season was against Leon. The Aguilas may have come away from that battle victorious, but it seems that Leon's former coach, Gustavo Matosas, has indeed won the war, wresting control of America from the leadership of Antonio Mohamed. Yet Mohamed, humiliated...

Player Ratings: Wheels come off for Tigres in Liga MX final loss

Jesus Molina of America, right, tries to steal the ball from Damian Alvarez of Tigres.

Tigres came into Sunday's Liga MX Apertura final second leg knowing that if they could extend their 15-game undefeated run to 16, they would be champion.

But after being down 1-0 at halftime, the away side in the Estadio Azteca capitulated. Tigres conceded twice and had three players sent off in the second 45 minutes leading to the 3-0 loss in the game and a 3-1 loss on aggregate for the tie. The fine form that sent the Monterrey team to the final unraveled in quite spectacular fashion.
