You knew I couldn't stay away didn't you?
Mexican newspaper Record is linking Carlos De los Cobos, current head coach of El Salvador's National Team, [with the Fire](http://www.record.com.mx/futbol/de-los-cobos-cerca-del-chicago-fire-21122009.html).
De los Cobos, 51, said that he will be leaving the Salvadoran "selection" when his contract expires at the end of the year. Though he said he had been interviewed by both a club team and a national side (neither of which he named), De los Cobos made it clear that he would prefer to manage a club next season.
El Salvador advanced to the final round of World Cup Qualifying for the first time since 1997 under the eye of De los Cobos, who -- along with leading El Salvador -- has managed first and second division Mexican clubs when he entered coaching in 1993.
"There is a lot of thoughtfulness in this negotiation and I want to respect the contact with them," he said. "The management has asked me out of respect, and because my contract with El Salvador is valid, that I not mention the name of the team yet. But all is going very well and next week we could have news and reach a good agreement."
