Mexican legend Hugo Sanchez believes that the federation, club owners and presidents have to take a large slice of responsibility for the present state of Mexico’s national team.
“A lot of things are failing,” Sanchez told Marca. “One of the fundamentals is that the owners and some of the presidents make a lot of mistakes.”
‘Pentapichichi’ continued to criticize, indicating that in Mexico “economic aspects are prioritized over sporting ones” within the game.
Sanchez stressed that he hasn’t ruled out coaching the national team again, but suggested he would only do so if there was a “drastic” change within Mexican football.
“Those that decide right now aren’t those who know most about soccer,” added Sanchez in the same interview.
The former Real Madrid striker was also explained his incredulity at Carlos Vela and Guillermo Ochoa refusing call-ups to the national team squad.
“How is it possible that Carlos Vela or Guillermo Ochoa doesn’t want to come to play because the bad management of those in charge?” asked Sanchez. “The same happened to me with Nery Castillo and I convinced him to come. They’ve tried to blame the players, but the situation isn’t like that.”
