Even if Gerardo “Tata” Martino was able to earn the ticket to Qatar 2022, he still hasn’t guaranteed that he will be the coach that will be in El Tri’s dugout in November, as the performances of the Aztec squad haven’t convinced FMF.

The requests of Miguel Herrera to replace Gerardo Martino in Mexico National Team

According to reports, Martino’s future will be discussed and voted in the next meeting that the Liga MX owners will have, as they are worried with the lack of goals that the Mexican national team has showed in the past year, especially on the important games.

It’s worth noting that the in three most important games since October, two against USMNT and the visit to Canada, the Mexican squad only scored one goal, while they received four. In those same games, they were able to save just one point.

That’s why Miguel Herrera is taking the lead to replace him in El Tri’s dugout, as the Mexican coach already knows what it means to help the Aztec squad find an offensive style just months before the World Cup, although his arrival will also mean the disappearance of some player from the current roster.

Who are the players that won’t be part of Herrera’s roster?

During his first stint as El Tri’s coach, Herrera was known for calling the best available players, something that he’ll try to repeat for Qatar 2022, as he knows that Martino is stuck calling the same players even if they don’t improve the roster.

That’s why the first player he will stop calling is Rogelio Funes Mori, who wasn’t part of the last FIFA match window given a lingering injury that kept him away from the pitches. Funes Mori has been one of the most criticized players as he hasn’t been able to score since last October.

The list will be completed by two other Monterrey players: Jesús Gallardo, who has even lost the starting role in Rayados even before Victor Manuel Vicetich arrived in Rayados, and Rodolfo Pizarro, who has disappeared since moving to MLS.

Diego Lainez is in doubt to return to El Tri

Another player that could lose his place in the Aztec squad is Diego Lainez, who has played less than 5 percent of the minutes of La Liga this season, although he can earn his place back if he leaves Real Betis over the summer and gains the regularity that he needs to show his talent.
