After losing 2-1 at home against relegation-threatened Puebla last Friday in the Estadio Morelos, the board of the Monarcas club decided to terminate his contract.

The brother of the current Cruz Azul manager had only returned to Mexican football at the start of the Clausura after a three-year absence, but he did not get the expected results.

During his time with Morelia, Tena had three draws and four defeats in seven games, leaving the team in last place in the overall ranking. Morelia also finished their last campaign in last place, but avoided relegation due to the convoluted co-efficient system that’s used in Mexico.

As a player Tena played in defence for Club America for most of his career (1973-1991), captaining the club for several years. Before retiring he also played for Tecos UAG in the 91/92 season. As a manager he won a title with Santos Laguna in 1996 and again with Pachuca in 2001.
