Recent seasons have been challenging, with the team battling against relegation. A change in management brought José Luis Mendilibar, who, despite efforts to stabilize the team, faced poor results and was subsequently replaced by Diego Alonso. The latter had a successful record in Mexico but faced disappointment while managing Uruguay in a lackluster World Cup campaign where they failed to advance from the group stage.
