This Sunday, the Mexican National Team defines the Nations League against the United States, with the aim of reaching the 2021 Gold Cup in the best way possible. And in the run-up to this important match, coach Gerardo Martino got angry with both journalists and with fans who criticize him for the lack of center-forwards. In that sense, Tata said that he is satisfied with the two nines that he brought to the meeting and that it is disrespectful that it's said that they don't play in that position.
The lack of goal of the Mexican team is very noticeable since Raúl Jiménez was injured in Wolverhampton. In turn, Alan Pulido and Henry Martín don't finish giving the security that the center-forward of the Lobos gave.
Because of this, one of the main criticisms that Martino receives is why he does not call Chicharito Hernández, who had a good start to the season in the Los Angeles Galaxy of the MLS. This questioning occurred this Saturday at a press conference, a situation that greatly annoyed the Argentine coach.
“The truth is that the questions don't bother me. What if it seems to me that it's disrespectful to say that we do not have nines. We have two nines, one is Pulido and the other is Martín ”, Tata began. And he added: “Afterwards, the evaluation that you make of the mentioned footballers depends exclusively on you. We do not cite players who positionally do not play anywhere other than the center forward. Either of the two plays in that position, either in his team or in the national team ”.
It should be remembered that in the last hours it was learned that Rogelio Funes Mori is close to having Mexican citizenship, so he could be called to El Tri to play the 2021 Gold Cup.
