Authorities to probe Liga MX clubs, players on alleged 'double contracts'

Mexico's Tax Administration Service (SAT) is set to investigate Liga MX clubs and players for the alleged existence of "double contracts."

"Double contracts" are when a player or employee signs one contract to register with the federation as an official document and then has another on the side directly with the club or separate entity.

Rubio Rubin Q&A: Tijuana player talks decision to move to Liga MX, representing the U.S.

The ESPN FC crew weigh the pros and cons of Juan Carlos Osorio potentially becoming U.S. head coach, after stepping down from the Mexico job.

It's early, but Cruz Azul appears to be in the midst of redefining itself

New-look Cruz Azul were impressive against Puebla and will look to make it two from two vs. Chivas.
It's barely four weeks into the season, but Cruz Azul already has a different feel to it.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- The season's first four games don't provide enough of a sample size to make a definitive judgment on Cruz Azul's season, but they can offer hints that a once-insecure team with a habit of falling apart at the wrong time is turning things around. A valiant away draw at Tijuana's always-difficult pitch, earned with only 10 men from the 22nd minute on, made it clear that Cruz Azul is ready to move on from its recent period of uncertainty.
