harsh criticism for his trip to Argentina and the talk with Scaloni, rival in the World Cup

Gerardo MartinFor several months, he has been in the eye of the hurricane among Mexican fans. This situation increased after being captured at the Coloso Marcelo Bielsa stadium in Rosario over the weekend, which caused him to be the center of criticism from the Aztec media, who accused him of not having enough commitment to the country or to the players who are fighting for a place in the National Team heading to the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

To make matters worse, always according to the Mexican media, everything was enlarged by the photo where Martino is seen together with Lionel Scalloni. Precisely both coaches from Santa Fe who will share a group in Qatar. The link that unites them is that they were partners in Leprosy in the 95/96 seasonwhen Scaloni was taking his first steps as a player, while Martino was already at the end of his career.

Despite having qualified in second place for the World Cup -equal in points, but with a lower goal difference than Canada- and having been champion of the Concacaf Gold Cup in 2019, the daddy does not gather a great consensus among the fans and the press. Perhaps, the runners-up in the League of Nations in the 2019/2020 season and in the 2021 Gold Cup were factors that generated mistrust and that the Argentine process was looked at sideways.

Emanuel titus Villa, a former Argentine soccer player with a great career in Mexico, is currently an analyst in the media of that country and hit Rosario hard. “It is a total lack of respect for the entire country, not just the footballers. He should be here, watching his players closely. Showing that commitment to take Mexico to the top”sentenced.

All this situation caused the Tri Selection account itself on the social network Twitter to launch a strong defense of the work of Martino and his coaching staff. One by one, he explained that in all the meetings of the weekend in Liga MX there were representatives of the work team of the daddy.

“All the matches of the players eligible for the World Cup, both national and international, are analyzed, either in person or on video, with the technological tools available for National Teams and Liga MX”explained the account of the Selection, at the beginning of a thread that he completed with photos.

For now, the group’s next commitment Tri it will be a friendly against Paraguaywhich will take place on August 31. Argentina and Mexico will meet for the second date of group C of Qatar 2022 on November 26 at the Lusail stadium in Doha.
