Inter Miami CF and manager Diego Alonso mutually agree to part ways
Inter Miami CF announced today that the club and manager Diego Alonso have mutually agreed to part ways.
“On behalf of the organization, I want to thank Diego for his hard work and dedication during our inaugural season and wish him the best in his future endeavors,” said Inter Miami CF managing owner Jorge Mas. “This was a difficult year and a very tough decision for everyone, but we believe it is the right step for the Club. We have great expectations for Inter Miami in the short and long term.”
“Going through the journey of this inaugural season with Inter Miami has been an incredible experience, and I am thankful to the ownership group for the opportunity. I want to thank the staff for their work and friendship, the players for their efforts on the field, and especially the fans for their constant support throughout the year. I wish everyone the best this upcoming season,” said Alonso.
Inter Miami finished with a regular season record of seven wins, three draws and 13 losses, finishing 10th in the Eastern Conference. The club was eliminated from the MLS Cup playoffs on Nov. 20, 2020.
Alonso helped oversee a number of milestone moments in the club’s first year, from the team’s debut to its playoff berth, becoming just the seventh MLS franchise to qualify for the playoffs in its inaugural season.
