The project of the Argentine coach Diego Cocca in charge of the Mexican National Team It has already started and despite the fact that you have to wait a little more than a month to see its premiere, both he and his entire team are already working to find the first call for El Tri.
At the same time, criticism of his appointment continues to appear, surprising for many when the names that most sounded were the names of Guillermo Almada (Tuzos de Pachuca) and Miguel ‘Piojo’ Herrera (formerly free, currently in Xolos de Tijuana).
But there are several who have supported the appointment of Cocca, two-time Liga MX champion, at the helm of Mexico. One of them was Guillermo Almada himself who wished his colleague the best. Is now Fernando ‘Tano’ Ortiz, coach of Club América, the one who sent a forceful message.
At a press conference last weekend, the Argentine coach also made it clear that both he, in his role as coach of the Águilas del América, and the entire institution support the new process of senior teams captained by Diego Cocca.
“He is the chosen one, we must support him. He is the coach of the National Team and from me he will have my full support and that of the club, ”said Fernando Ortiz.
Message from Fernando Ortiz for Tata Martino
Diego Cocca was present at Club América’s 2-1 victory against Necaxaa result that keeps them in the top 4 of the 2023 Clausura Tournament standings of Liga MX.
The detail did not go unnoticed by Tano Ortiz, who in front of the journalists seems to have left a critical note about the previous management led by Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino:
“They told me that he came to watch the game. That’s good, that’s something that was needed, for the national coach to watch the games”
Precisely one of the discomforts, beyond criticism, expressed against the previous process commanded by Tata Martino was the little interest in knowing first-hand how Liga MX was developing On the contrary, he traveled a lot to his native Argentina or spent a lot of time in the United States, planning games from a distance and communicating with the players by phone.
