Víctor Montagliani, president of Concacaf, revealed that FIFA did not give approval for Mexico to return to the Copa Libertadores, so Liga MX clubs will no longer participate in the Conmebol competition.

In an exclusive interview with Marc Crosas and Iván Zamorano from TUDN, the manager highlighted that Mexico will be left without the highest club competition in South America because FIFA did not give authorization.

The Confederations are working together to have some other competition, but regarding the Libertadores we have a request from Mexico to play in it, we spoke with FIFA, we returned a paper to the FMF that was denied, it was not authorized because we have the official competition, Ours was not authorized because we have ours, which is the path to the Club World Cup, explained Montagliani.

In recent days, the governing body of South American soccer extended a new invitation for Mexico to participate in the prestigious tournament, but everything indicates that for now it will only remain at that, since FIFA did not give the go-ahead for this return.
