Mexico City /
Sad but true. More than five years after the infamous 7-0 that the National Team suffered against Chile, there is a Christian Martinoli’s speech of that moment that was revived on social networks after a new mexican defeat, now before the Alternative USA selection on the Gold Cup Final.
Speaking of “fear of the managers to the players of the Tri” and of “the same results always regardless of the coach”, the harsh words of the TV Azteca narrator still echo so many years away and were used to define the failure of the Tricolor in the Concacaf.
“The directors of Mexican soccer are afraid of the soccer players of the Mexican National Team. He is not afraid of the guy who does not have a contract, who is ignored, whose salary is lowered or left in the Draft thrown away, they are afraid of the caciques of the fame and fortune of Mexican soccer. Those who are the demigods of national football, those who ‘don’t touch them’ because they are the country’s patrimony, the managers are afraid of them, “Martinoli Curi said at the time.
“Those who have been part of the National Team for eight years cannot beat them. Technicians come and go, a cheerleader comes, a psychologist, a motivator, a soldier, a philosopher, whoever comes, these footballers do not work, the paper stars of Mexican soccer do not work. In the big stages, against the great teams, against whom we think we are and we have an idea that we are better than them, we are not, “he added.
Hugo Sánchez asks for Martino’s resignation
Joining the criticism against the Mexican National Team he was Hugo Sanchez, who minutes after the loss to the US demanded that Gerardo Martino leaves the national bench because he “does not have the capacity” to take command, remembering that in a month he lost two finals against the staunch rival in the area.
“You must be ashamed, You have to present your resignation and say ‘I am not qualified to lead the Mexican National Team’; It did not work to bring Funes Mori and I would have to respect his resignation, “he said in ESPN.
