Estadio Corregidora – Queretaro

Estadio Corregidora

Vacation has brought me to Queretaro, so I took a walk to the stadium for a few pictures. So let’s talk Gallos Blancos and reminisce some highlights from this past year.

The Estadio Corregidora is the home of the Gallos Blancos of Queretaro. A city just north of Mexico City and recently known as the Team where Ronaldinho Gaucho payed for the Clausura 2015 season and took the team to the League Final only to lose to Santos Laguna.

During the 1st leg Semifinal of the Clausura 2015 Liguilla, some controversy arose as Head Coach Manuel Vucetich, benched both Sinha and Ronaldinho right before the half after going down by 2 goals. Ronaldinho didn’t like being taken out and was visibly frustrated with Vucetich. He didn’t head to the midfield line for the substitution, instead he walked direclty to the locker room entrance to leave the field entirely.

Vucetich could be seen as the villain and to be attempting to humiliate the Brazilian legend. He could have easily waited a few minutes for the half to end and make the change then. There seemed to have been a bit of a power struggle between the two. Ronaldinho is now no longer with the team, since the summer of this year.

Now the Argentine, Emmanuel Villa is the goal scorer for the team. He will be joined by Mexican youngster Carlos Fierro. Clausura 2016 should be interesting for the team.
