He has been fired as head coach of the Costa Rican men’s national team after losing to the United States, 4-0, in an international friendly in Sandy, Utah Wednesday night.
La Sele also finished fourth in the Concacaf Nations League.
“By this means, we want to make known to all the fans, the media and our sponsors, that today the Executive Committee of the Costa Rican Football Federation, unanimously together with the Sports Directorate, has made the decision to separate with Ronald González as coach of our Senior Selection,” Fedefutbol said via a press release.
“We thank Ronald for his work, his dedication, his discipline and his love of the jersey.”
Costa Rica soccer officials Thursday began looking for a new coach.
