Gerardo Martino still has one more chance to convince.

Gerardo “Tata” Martino hasn’t fully convinced on his time as Mexico National Team coach, although he has El Tri just a few steps away from the 2022 FIFA World Cup, as they have managed to scratch the needed results in the past CONCACAF Qualifiers match window.

But in Mexican Football Federation they still are lookingfor potential replacements in case “Tata” Martino fails to beat USMNT once again, as he’s lost their three previous encounters against the Bars and Stripes.

Although the three defeats were painful for los Incondicionales and El Tri, the last game was the one that left the worst mouth taste out of the three, as it meant the first defeat in the World Cup Qualifiers and losing the leadership in CONCACAF, as well as falling in FIFA Rankings from 9 to 14 place.

Martino will put his job on the line in the upcoming FIFA match window, as if El Tri doesn’t convince in the game against the Bars and Stripes, the Argentine coach won’t be in the Aztec squad’s dugout for the remainder of the cycle.

Who can replace Gerardo Martino?

Although everyone in FMF is expecting him to earn at least 7 out of the 9 available points, same goals established as the past FIFA match window, it’s true that the match against USMNT will define the future of El Tri.

Within FMF there’s a group that wants to have Martino in El Tri’s dugout at least until 2026, when the World Cup is set to be played in Mexico – United States – Canada, but there’s another group that don’t think he’s the answer and already have his replacement.

After the disastrous stint Javier “Vasco” Aguirre had with Monterrey, Rayados decided to part ways with him after the 2-0 defeat at home against Atlético San Luis, given the poor results that Aguirre had, as he left the team standing 16, with just 5 points.

But even if he couldn’t achieve the expected results La Pandilla had on him, Aguirre is still one of the best Mexican coaches given his long resumé, as he’s coached several National Teams and European clubs. He’s no stranger to El Tri’s dugout, as he’s coached El Tri in two different World Cups, which can make him the perfect fit for the Aztec squad if Martino doesn’t continue as the front man.
