After winning the bronze medal in the 2020 Olympic Games, Jaime Lozano had everything to become Gerardo “Tata” Martino’s successor as Mexico National Team coach, and he even tried to become his assistant to learn from him.
More Mexico National Team news:
When “Tata” Martino refused to take him in into his coaching staff, Lozano decided to step away from El Tri and entered a 6-month hiatus that ended just a couple of weeks ago, when he became Liga MX side Necaxa new coach.
But before signing with Necaxa, he was close to become Gerardo Martino’s replacement, as he has the capabilities and understanding of what the Mexican players need to be successful, but his arrival in El Tri’s dugout was prevented because of a fight.
Was Lozano involved in said fight?
Reports suggest that Alan Mozo, Pumas right-back, didn’t agree with Lozano’s decision of leaving him out of the final roster of El Tri U-23 that was part of Tokyo 2020, which led to a heated discussion between the player and the coach.
