The Colorado Rapids CONCACAF Champions League journey looked to be starting it's hardest leg on September 13th as Mexican side Santos Laguna came to town. The plot thickened for Santos at the very start of their CCL matches when it became apparent that they weren't taking the competition all that seriously, playing straight up reserve teams in matches that they were barely able to beat Real Espana and lost to Isidro Metapan in.

The plot thickened again after a bad run of form - three losses in a row which knocked them down to 14th on the Mexican table - caused Santos to fire their head coach Diego Cocca. The biggest rumored move for a head coach was for former US Men's National Team coach Bob Bradley, which escalated throughout yesterday and into the night as the most plausible rumor for them.

Earlier today, twitter account @Insider_del_fut tweeted the following;

Oficial! El ex-entrenador de la seleccion de Estados Unidos,Bob Bradley, sera el nuevo D.T del Santos Laguna. Seria presentado el dia de hoy

In English that vaguely reads "Official! The former coach of the U.S., Bob Bradley, will be the new coach of Santos Laguna. Would be presented this day".

The account only has a touch over 200 followers so take it with a grain of salt of course, but it keeps looking like Bradley to Santos Laguna is an inevitability if not already the case. That should certainly make for an interesting dynamic since one of his first games will be against our Colorado Rapids.
