the tough The defeat of the Mexican National Team against Argentina in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar continues to raise dust and strong criticism of the already questioned project of Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino. On this occasion he has been the journalist Álvaro Morales the one who exploded and directed some strong words towards the El Tri coach.
From Qatar, as well as the rest of his ESPN colleagues who mobilized to cover the World Cup, ‘Álvarito’ accused Martino of “tactically delivering the game” and that due to his nationality (Argentina) he wanted the Albiceleste to win the match and not the team he directs and “pays him almost $3 million a year.”
“I told you (that) Gerardo ‘El Tata’ Martino delivered the game tactically… What did we expect if we have the Trojan horse at home?”
At the table of the Futbol Picante program, Morales also assured that the Tata “did absolutely nothing” for El Tri to secure victory against an Argentina that was also in urgency of victory after their surprise setback on the first date against Saudi Arabia.
Even the Mexican fans who came to the Lusail Stadium had the hope of obtaining a good result after the good football shown on the first date against Poland, despite the fact that they failed to win or score a goal.
On the latter, the Mexican communicator was categorical: “Today the Mexican fans who made the effort to come here are leaving disappointed”.
With a high tone of impotence, practically shouting, Álvaro Morales assured on ESPN that Tata Martino “put the game on a silver platter” for Argentina to surpass Mexico.
The match meant that El Tri had to risk everything on the last date if they wanted to go to the next phase of the World Cup, the round of 16, although there should be some interesting results and conditions that leave him on the brink of elimination.
