After Gerardo Martino’s cycle in the Mexican National Team, Guillermo Ochoa received the call from El Tri againbut this time from Diego Cocca. “Meme” is 37 years old and is having a good time at Salernitana in Italy, but Jorge Campos and Christian Martinoli consider that it is time for the experienced Mexican goalkeeper to step aside.
Both Jorge Campos and Martinoli agree that El Tri needs a generational change. There are other goalkeepers who have been following Ochoa’s footprint for some time. One of them is Carlos Acevedo, goalkeeper who had been “banished” by Gerardo Martino, but that Cocca could recover.
“I think we are not thinking about the future. But forget about (Guillermo) Ochoa, there is (Héctor) Moreno, Raúl Jiménez, So we’re falling behind again. There is no need to be afraid to see the future, that is the theme. We have a panic to project something into the future“, assured Jorge Campos in statements compiled by Halftime.
Guillermo Ochoa blinded by his goal

“Ochoa would not have to return to the Mexican National Teambut he is doing an act of absolute individualism. He wants his sixth world championship anyway and that’s fine. But take him from third grade, you tell him: ‘you know, you’re not going to come in any call because we want to give circulation to those who are going to play in the World Cupyou are going to go from third to auxiliary ninth with us’“explained.
