Marcos Ignacio "Nacho" Ambríz Espinoza (born 7 February 1965) is a Mexican former footballer and manager for Necaxa in the Liga MX.

Playing career[edit]

Ambríz had three spells with Club Necaxa, and was part of two championship-winning seasons in 1994–95 and 1995–96.

He earned 64 caps and scored 6 goals for the Mexico national team between 1992 and 1995,[1] and captained the squad at the 1994 FIFA World Cup, where he played in all four games. Ambríz also formed part of the national squad that won the 1993 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Managerial career[edit]

Ambríz began his coaching career in 2002 with Puebla, managing only seven matches. In 2003, he was the assistant to Javier Aguirre at Spanish clubs Osasuna and Atlético de Madrid. They parted company when Aguirre was sacked from the Madrid position in 2009.[2] He also had spells with San Luis – from 2009 to 2011 – and Guadalajara in 2012, only in charge for twelve matches.[3]

On 4 February 2013 Adolfo Ríos, President of Querétaro, announced Ambríz as their new manager after the club sacked Sergio Bueno after a 3–0 loss to Club América at Estadio Azteca. He managed the club up until February 2015, where Ambríz was sacked after a string of bad results during the Clausura tournament.[4]

On 26 May 2015, Ambríz was confirmed as the new manager at Club América, signing a two-year contract.[5]

After suffering a 2–0 home defeat to Club León on 17 September 2016, Ambríz was sacked as manager the following day.[6]
