It’s no lie to say that Mexican National Team is in desperate need of a left-back, as every player Martino has tried to play on that position is lacking something, whether is good performance, speed, age or is vetoed by the Argentinean coach.
But now, after playing his second season in Europe, becoming a regular for his team, and increasing his value up to $4 million, Gerardo “Tata” Martino is considering calling him for the upcoming FIFA Qualifiers game to be disputed at the end of January.
Gerardo Arteaga could be returning to Mexico National Team after being vetoed by Martino for declining to play the Olympics last year for personal reasons, but the 23-year-old is being considered as he’s thriving in a position El Tri needs help.
Rayados could be the reason behind his calling
Reports suggest that Javier “Vasco” Aguirre is refusing to lend his players for the FIFA Qualifiers as Monterrey is set to travel to Saudi Arabia to dispute FIFA Club World Cup, and he wants to have his full team at his disposal, reason that could force Martino to call players he’s not used to call, like Arteaga.
