Diego Cocca, the new coach of Mexico, sent a hint to Gerardo Martino

Argentine Diego Cocca, Mexico’s new soccer coachpromised this Friday the rapprochement with the clubs of the country that his compatriot Gerardo Martino did not havehis predecessor in the process that ended in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

We want to make all the teams feelpresidents and players of Mexican soccer part of the selection, get closer again, that they feel observed because the team is going to look at everyone. When they feel that, they will have more motivation, ”he explained in his presentation as a strategist for the Tri.

Martino was criticized in much of his tenure for his constant trips to Argentina and his absence in the stadiums and clubs of the Mexican league.

Even the president of the Mexican Football Federation (FMF), Yon de Luisa, admitted, after the departure of ‘Tata’, that his coaching staff did not know Mexican footballsomething that changed with Cocca, who has been a player and coach in the North American country for several years.

I know the Mexican soccer player wellI know that he has talent and a lot of possibilities for growth, but I think talent is not enough. You have to accompany him, have an idea of ​​the game and give him the tools to explode ”, added the two-time champion coach with Atlas in the 2021-2022 season.

The directors of the FMF claim that Cocca is on the tricolor bench at least until the 2026 World Cupwhich Mexico will organize together with the United States and Canada.

Diego Cocca, champion in Argentina with Racing Club, won the race for being Mexico’s coach over five candidates, including the Argentine Marcelo Bielsa and the Uruguayan Guillermo Almada, current monarch of local soccer with the Tuzos del Pachuca.

“The player who puts on the Mexico shirt has to feel privileged and be 100 percent committed, whoever is not like this I will separate. The national team needs a style of play with which the fans of a country of hard work and sacrifice, which grows day by day, feel identified. That we will try to do in the selection“Added the 50-year-old technician.

The native of Buenos Aires takes the Mexican bench at a time of crisis, after El Tri did not advance to the second round in Qatar 2022, for the first time in seven World Cups.

That generated the departure of Martino and a series of changes, among them the return of Mexico to competitions with Conmebol such as the Copa América.

The Mexican directors trust that the appointment of Cocca is the first step so that in 2026, El Tri have their best performance in a World Cup and reach the semifinals for the first time.
