Could not remain neutral. The Almería coach, Gaizka Garitano, criticized the Mexican National Team for having occupied Cesar Montes in both games FIFA date.
The work that some footballers carry out is enormous, especially the international ones. We have many from outside and they go with their National Team. The case of César Montes, for example. He does not play with Almería because he is injured, he travels with Mexico, plays two 90-minute games, returns from the United States, arrives exhausted and needed it for Sunday.

And the controversy broke out in Almería when César Montes claimed to be injured shortly before the FIFA date and did not play with his team, but in the national team he was suddenly fit for a full matchIn fact, the Aztec defender participated for 90 minutes in both friendly duels of Mexico against Ghana and Germanywhich was illogical for the Spanish coach, who was blunt in highlighting that the Spanish club is the one who pays the Mexican's salary.
In the end the club that pays him is Almería but it turns out that he cannot play with his team before, he plays two games with his national team and arrives at night after a transoceanic trip. It is what it is, but these types of things are later paid for, because the players travel a lot and accumulate too many games. We cannot complain because the same thing happens to Girona,” he stated.
