The defeat against the main rival las Chivas de Guadalajara in the quarterfinals of the liguilla was a very hard blow for the project of the manager from Club America Miguel Herrera. The board has doubts about their project and the fans are not at all happy with the manager’s work, as they consider that the level of the team has gone downhill. The main criticism to which the coach has been subjected by the fans is the little or no self-criticism that Miguel Herrera has about his work or performance with the club, in addition to pointing out or blaming his players on certain occasions.
One of the main differences and very big indeed that coach Herrera sees in comparison with soccer in Mexico and Europe, is that in the old continent the players are more professional, that the Latin American players, who mostly focuses on the games, and once it has finished, they want to relax, look for distractions, that lower their performance. Many players with this attitude have passed through the club. One of the clear examples was the case of Salvador Cabañas or the Mexican Giovani Dos Santos.
The harsh statements made by the manager have a lot of truth, since there are the clear examples of Carlos Vela or Giovani Dos Santos when he played in Europe or the very notorious cases of Javier Hernandez with other members of the national team, when they organized a party hours before the friendly against Argentina. These statements do not fall at the best moment since the team is going through a bad moment and the board is thinking about whether to continue with the project of Miguel Herrera. The strong statements by Herrera, which although he may be very right in his comments, may not be the best time to make them. The fans are very upset with the current situation of the team, so a lot of work awaits them to be able to remedy the situation.
