“I’m leading…”: Cuauhtémoc Blanco exploded against Tata Martino for the elimination of the Mexican National Team

Cuauhtémoc Blanco, the former striker for América and the Mexican National Team, who is now governor of the state of Morelos, but who does not lose the habit of giving his opinion on his favorite subject: soccer, He expressed his dissatisfaction with the result of the tricolor team and pointed out the mistakes that he believes the technical director made in his approach.

I’m pissed off, because the result couldn’t be given. The coach makes a mistake in the changes, the team was playing well, I don’t know why he brought in Raúl (Jiménez), took out Edson (Álvarez) I believe that it was a mistake too”, he expressed in an interview for Fox Sports.

The coach is wrong for the changes he madeI think that the National Team was playing well, they are decisions that they make and they must be respected. (The players) trusted us and look what happened to us. With Argentina you would have made a tie and you would be almost classified”, complemented the “I fear”.

It is worth mentioning that, moments after the final whistle that sealed the failure of the Mexican team, which had not been left out of a World Cup in the group stage since 1978, coach Gerardo Martino announced his departure from the team, recalling that his contract was expiring along with Mexico’s participation in Qatar, something that he does not want to change, which is why “Divo de Tepito” can rest easy, since Tata’s “mistakes” will not be suffered by El Tri again.

Finally, regarding the coach that he would like to see succeed Martino on the bench, Cuauhtémoc Blanco quickly nominated Marcelo Bielsa, who, curiously, is also Argentine and, like Tata, has directed the albiceleste.

“I would love for Bielsa to lead the Mexican National Team, he is an excellent coach, highly prepared, responsible, works hard and that is what is needed, a technician with character”, he concluded.
