Sanchez back again

Remember Hugo Sanchez? Of course we all do. How could we forget him? Well, we may have forgotten some of his tenure, some of the overblown promises he made when he took over as Mexico coach in 2006. I do recall, however, his desire to coach in Spain. Somewhere along the line he said something to the effect of 'I will coach Real Madrid after winning a World Cup' or something.

Well, he fell waaaay short of winning a World Cup and now he's fallen waaaay short of Real Madrid. Sanchez is back in coaching as he is now coach of Almeria in the Spanish first division.

Technically Almeria are in the same league as Real Madrid but they aren't in the same class as Sanchez's former club. It will be interesting to see if Sanchez is a different man, perhaps a quieter one, someone who doesn't promise the moon and the stars only to deliver rocks and some dust.
