Although Gerardo Torrado, Sports General Director of the Mexican Soccer Federation (FMF), did not want to advance who will be the technician to get to the place on the bench that officially left Jaime Lozano this monday in the Olympic TricolorIn National Teams there is already a list with the names of some candidates.
Who could be the new coach of Tri Olímpico?
According to sources consulted by Mediotiempo, in the list are the names of Alex Diego, former coach of Atlante and Querétaro; Israel Lopez, who was a technical assistant in Pumas, and Christian gimenez, former Cruz Azul player, who recently had his first adventure as a strategist managing Cancún FC in the Expansion League.
However, on this list is also the name of Gerardo Martino, coach of the National Team, who could lead the three-year Olympic process towards Paris 2024, as long as it performs a good role in the Qatar 2022 World Cup and extends its contractual relationship with the FMF until the 2026 World Cup.
Why could Tata Martino lead the Olímpica?
For the world Cup to be held in Mexico, the United States and Canada, it is most likely that there will be no qualifying for El Tri for being one of the locals, so the Tata would have time to lead the process towards the Olympic Games in French territory.
Martino already knows the youth generation very well for that Olympic competition, as he has seen some players thinking about the next process towards Paris, such as the young players that he led to the Gold Cup and the Nations League, such as the goalkeeper David ochoa or Julián Araujo, among others who could be part of that team.
Until now, the National Teams management has not established contact with any of the candidatesLozano just announced this Monday that he will not continue in the structure of national representatives of the Mexican Soccer Federation; However, Torrado will not start from scratch for the election of who directs the Tri Minor, since there are already several names to be analyzed
In what is decided to the new coach of the Mexican Sub-23 National Team, Raúl Chabrand, coach of the U-20 team, will be the one to start the work in the first concentrationas he knows well the generation that is looking to become the Olympic national team.
