Miguel Herrera denies that the DT del Tri is going to be a puppetMediotiempo
Being a coach of the Mexican National Team does not mean becoming a puppet of the Mexican Soccer Federation or the owners of Liga MX, assured Miguel Herrera a halftimeremembering that this famous version was given a few years ago by the helmsman Ricardo Ferretti, before Tuca led the Tri.
Herrera is convinced that those rumors that Ferretti spread were without foundation for Bigotón himself, realizing that They never imposed anything on him during the time he was interim; further, El Piojo was already a coach of the Tri and directed the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, from what he says He knows what he’s talking about.
“He (Tuca) has already passed (through El Tri), after a long time he did not want to go, he realized that it is not true, you decide who to takeNobody questions you about anything, there is a sports director to discern what you do, talk, talk about everything that has to be done… Ricardo lived it, he realized that he took whoever he wantedI am sure that if they ask him if someone imposed something on him, he will say no because that is a lie (that DT is a puppet) ”, said El Piojo in the interview with halftime.
What does Miguel Herrera think of the Tri’s friendly matches?
For the 2026 World Cup, Mexico will not have a qualifying round as it is already classified as one of the host countries, in such a way that Miguel Herrera points out that it is worth having the so-called molero parties to prepare, because sometimes only those can be programmed and you have to take advantage of them.
“Friendly matches, suddenly They say that you have to look for matches of a high level, world-class, with the top 10, it’s not just saying it, you have to spend, which is not only the United States. Searching for European teams is not so easy… it is very complex, but all parties serve even if they are of a higher or lower level; It’s that there are times when you don’t get a rival and you get rivals that aren’t so strong, but you have to use them, because you have to see your team on the field and the only way to see them is in a match… That nickname of the molero parties seems to me to have been given lightly”, he indicated.

The louse projectwhich he presented to the Mexican Soccer Federation, includes his goal for the 2026 World Cup, in which he establishes play it all; that is to say, win it or in the worst case, end up in fourth placewhich means having played the Semifinal and the fight for the third place.
“It will always have to be the idea that Mexico is at the topyou go to a World Cup to play it completely, play the complete World Cup, Reaching the final is the idea, looking to win the World Cupbut to be among the first four in the world you also already play the entire World Cup, in addition we are local to the venue where we have to play ”, Herrera pointed out.
