The current days in the Mexican National Team are gray. El Tri’s objective was to reach the fifth game (quarterfinals) in the Qatar 2022 World Cup and did not even make it to the round of 16.
In that sense Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino’s process at the head of the team is described as an absolute failure and even the coach has already announced that he will not continue as coach. Having said this, by 2023 great changes are expected in the organization and approaches and the dance of technicians has not been long in coming.
Among that dance of names, that of the former footballer has come to light Hugo Sanchez. Who at some point was in charge of El Tri applied his name to be the coach again.
Taking advantage of his presence on ESPN’s Futbol Picante program, He assured that he would give a resounding yes if called by the Mexican Football Federation (FMF).
“What happens if they call you tomorrow and offer you the position?” José Ramón Fernández asked Sánchez on television, to which the Mexican legend answered bluntly: “I do not rule out the idea”.
David Faitelson, also present at the Futbol Picante table, suggested that he do it for free, but for Sánchez “all professionals must receive money for their work”. Juan Carlos Osorio, former coach of Mexico, supported this idea.
In the same conversation it was learned that the next matches El Tri’s friendlies will be in March 2023 against the teams of Suriname and Jamaicaboth from Concacaf.
