América improved its performance significantly in the Clausura 2022. After finishing in last place, they reached fourth place with a comeback that was as impressive as it was strange. Now they are eyeing Puebla, their first opponent in the Liguilla. Henry Martín was in charge of giving new details of the terrible situation of the squad before the departure of Santiago Solari as a coach.

The Yucatecan player, despite having the confidence of the Argentinean and having given him most of the starts he had this tournament, turned his back on him with these statements.

"It was difficult, especially because of the squad we have since we knew it was not for us to be in 18th place. Although we came to training angry, frustrated, and sad, we did not give up and in the end, life puts you where you should be. Fourth place was well deserved," he said to different media.

Henry Martin was one of the regulars in Santiago Solari's starting eleven and these words come as a surprise since, after the departure of the Argentine, he only started 3 of the 9 matches coached by Tano Ortiz.

Martin's numbers with and after Solari

During the Clausura 2022, Martin was under Solari's command for 7 games, 5 of them as a starter, and in four of them he played all 90 minutes, while he came on as a substitute against Atlético de San Luis to play 28 minutes and in the last game of the Solari era with América, against Querétaro, he was left on the bench. In those matches, he was only able to score two goals and assist once.

After Solari's departure, he only played 3 games as a starter with Fernando Ortiz, finishing only one game, which was against Monterrey, in the other two he came on as a substitute. Afterwards, the interim coach preferred to use Viñas instead of Henry Martin, who was only able to score one goal and assist once since the arrival of Tano.

Will Henry play against Puebla in the quarterfinals?

The team coached by Fernando Ortiz will go out with its full arsenal to face La Franja, which won its place in the playoffs after defeating Mazatlán on penalties.

Fernando Ortiz will opt for Roger Martínez for Wednesday's match and will leave Pedro Aquino on the bench, while Henry Martín will also have to wait for his turn as Federico Viñas will start.
