The El Tri boss joked on Twitter after snapping a pic with the New England Patriots star.Mexico coach Miguel Herrera “makes” Tom Brady’s day
Mexico coach Miguel Herrera is known for his humorous jibes and he took to Twitter on Thursday to make light fun of a photo he took with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady inside the Gillette Stadium complex, where El Tri plays Portugal on Friday evening.
“He asked me for a photo,” wrote Herrera. “I don’t know who he is … but I made the kid’s day.”
Tom Brady’s name then became a trending topic in Twitter in Mexico throughout Thursday, and the photo had been retweeted almost 4,000 times by the end of the day, almost triple the amount of his line-up to face Portugal.
Earlier in the day, Herrera had been in combative mood with the Mexican press, insinuating that criticism of the performance against Bosnia-Herzegovina was unfair.
He also accused members of the media of drawing a pig on the white-board inside the team’s locker room after the 1-0 loss on Tuesday to Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Herrera had said Bosnia changing the line-up after posting the official team sheets was “una marranada,” which loosely means “dirty trick,” but is a derivative of the word “pig” in Spanish.
