Kenneth Vermeer failed to win the CONCACAF Champions League with Los Angeles FC in the night from Tuesday to Wednesday (Dutch time).

The former keeper of Ajax and Feyenoord and his team lost 2-1 in the final against the Mexican Tigres UANL.

LAFC took the lead after an hour by a goal from Diego Rossi in the final battle of the most important tournament for clubs from North and Central America and the Caribbean.

Tigres still won thanks to Hugo Ayala and André-Pierre Gignac.

The 34-year-old Vermeer exchanged Feyenoord for LAFC at the beginning of 2020.

The CONCACAF Champions League had been his first prize with the club, founded in 2014, which has been in the MLS since 2018.

The knockout phase of the CONCACAF Champions League was actually planned in April, but was canceled then due to the corona pandemic.

In the quarter-finals and semi-finals, LAFC recently beat Cruz Azul and Club América.

Vermeer and LAFC can now prepare for the new MLS season.

Last season, the Los Angeles club was immediately eliminated in the play-offs.

Mexican Tigres can call itself the winner of the CONCACAF Champions League.
