When declaring, Miguel “Piojo” Herrera does not tend to beat around the bush. And proof of this is his opinion about the Mexican team, which according to him should be led by a national coach and not by a foreigner, as is the Argentine Gerardo Martino.
“He started very well (‘Tata’ Matino), for me he is a good coach, it is not talking about malinchismo, but I think that Mexicans have to lead the Mexican team to know the idiosyncrasy, to know what hurts us more, a A technician who comes out does hurt to lose, but not like us, “he said. Herrera in an interview with TUDN.
The message of the current coach of Tigers de México is known after the two tough defeats of Mexico against the United States: 0-1 in August, for the final of the Gold Cup, and 0-2 in November, for the Concacaf Qualifiers towards the Qatar World Cup 2022.
On these stumbles Herrera suggested that a Martino Mexican defeats against the Americans are not so heavy for him because he does not understand the country’s idiosyncrasies.
“I believe that Martino It will hurt him a lot if Argentina loses against Brazil because he knows what it means, to us the same thing, it hurts us a lot to lose against the United States, “he said. Herrera, who led the “Tri” in the 2014 World Cup Brazil.
Finally, he pointed out: “He has to understand what hurts us, he started very well and has come down and starts to lurch that I as a coach don’t like to see because he is a very fair coach, I saw him direct important teams, Argentina and Argentina. Paraguay, and Barcelona and I did not see him give these lurching I think of the same pressure ”.
