Gerardo Martino was not present on the Tricolor bench for the match against Honduras due to health reasons, a situation that has caught the attention of all Mexicans since the Argentinean tactician is not fit to perform as national coach.

The owners, those in charge, have already given the thumbs up to the decision that Mr. Gerardo Daniel Martino will remain in his position.
But his health puts that decision in doubt. The detached retina is what has Martino in limbo. They want him to stay, he wants to continue, but his health will decide.
After the bad performances of El Tri, bad in soccer, not in results, the possibility of the Argentinean being dismissed after tomorrow's match against El Salvador was raised.
Will Martino resign from El Tri?
No. The owners and the Committee are with Tata, Yon de Luisa supports him, there is a great relationship and he is their man to take Mexico to the fifth game.
Everything is on track for the Argentinean to take some time for recovery after tomorrow's game.
Reasons why Martino is not leaving:
- Gerardo continues because the directors support him.
- If he does not go to the World Cup, it is because he himself decided to leave, which is highly unlikely.
- If that were to happen, Miguel Herrera would step in if Tigres let him.
Martino will not travel to Qatar draw either
Gerardo Martino had already made the decision not to travel to Qatar before his health problem arose, and it will be through television that the national coach will follow next Friday's draw.
A couple of Tata's assistants along with the Federation's logistics staff will be traveling to Doha on Saturday, already knowing the schedule and the opponents to choose the venue for the Mexican team's concentration and training camp.
There is not much room for choice, since the practice fields will be assigned directly by FIFA, and as for the place of concentration, it is intended that it will be the same for the duration of Mexico's participation in Qatar 2022.
