Marcelo Bielsa was a candidate for the National Teams Committee
Although in recent days the name of Marcelo Bielsa sounded loud as a candidate to take the bench of the Mexican National Team after the resignation of Gerardo Martino at the end of last year, the plans within Mexican soccer for the Argentine were also different.
“Yes, I have permanent contact with Jesús Martínez (owner of Pachuca), what they expressed to me is that they wanted Marcelo Bielsa to be in another position, not coach,” Almada revealed in Now or never.
“They were left there because that is not the original idea, each one has free opinions to choose who they think is most suitable for a sports project, but, as a coach, it was not the position they wanted to put him in,” he explained.
Bielsa would have been considered to take responsibility at the head of the new Mexican National Team Committee, which was finally joined by Rodrigo Ares de Parga, with whom the Liga MX champion coach already met in the last few hours.
During the chat with Herculez Gomez Y Mauricio Pedrozathe Uruguayan strategist, a strong candidate to take the technical direction of the Tri, assured that he calmly hopes that the last word on this issue will be pronounced, since he has the absolute support of Jesús Martínez, whatever the side on which the coin falls .
“If we don’t get to go to the National Team, we are going to be very happy in Pachuca because we have deployed a spectacular project,” concluded the Tuzos coach.
