The Cruz Azul goalkeeper is angry that the Mexico manager made public a private conversation that took place after Guillermo Ochoa was named El Tri's starting shot stopper.
Mexico international goalkeeper Jesus Corona says he has lost trust in national team coach Miguel Herrera.
Corona is upset that Herrera revealed in an interview with Foro TV that the ‘keeper had asked if the decision to play Guillermo Ochoa in goal was due to orders from above, hinting that directors and possibly sponsors had influence.
Herrera denied it and said he would’ve packed his bags and left Brazil if anyone told him who to play, but Corona was angry that the coach had told the public about his reaction.

“Of course after this I would distrust (Herrera),” stated Corona in a news conference Monday. “It’s obvious because it was a locker room talk that should’ve stayed in the locker room.”
Corona added that he had seen the full interview in which Herrera discusses in detail how the Cruz Azul ‘keeper was not happy with his decision, but that he supported Ochoa 100 percent and gave his all in every training session afterward.
The 33-year-old seems unsure of his national team future, saying on one hand that he’d always be available for the Mexico national team, but adding that the misunderstanding with Herrera puts his role with El Tri in doubt.
Herrera has not made any comment as yet, but director of national teams Hector Gonzalez Inarritu told Mexican press outlets that the issue was not serious and it would be resolved with a phone call between coach and player.
