In the Mexican League, Mexican coaches know that they can lose their jobs at any time. In addition to the fact that they gesticulate, shout, and put on show acting, clubs tend to get along better with foreign-led sports projects, even without a proven track record. The number of national coaches in the Premier League has been reduced to seven following the departure of Rafael Puente del Rio, whose six-month contract at Pumas fell through and he was replaced by Argentine Antonio Mohamed.

Of this small universe that dominates domestic football, only Ricardo Ferretti (Cruz Azul) and Guillermo Almada (Pachuca), as well as Mohamed, have achieved successes in previous tournaments. The rest is a mixture of experienced and young helmsmen not born in the country, who remain in their posts regardless of whether they take the last places, such as Brazilian Andre Jardin (Atlético de San Luis), Mauro Gerke (Queretaro) and Rubén Omar Romano ( Mazatlan FC).

Many of these resumes are fake.Confirms today Javier Martínez, a 51-year-old Mexican, has managed soccer in Central America and Africa due to a lack of opportunities in the league. There are foreigners who have championships they never won and sell more when they get here. For the tricolor it is much more difficult, even to finish the contract. It is not convenient for clubs to do this with a foreigner, because they can go to FIFA and then start a legal dispute, because of their high salaries..

Assistant to Cruz Azul’s U-17 team between 2014 and 2016, as well as coach of the Mexican Army team, Martinez worked his way up the Uganda Premier League at the helm of Vipers SC thanks to one of his 200 job applications. That he sent a week to the odd leagues. Like him, other national representatives knocked on the doors of lesser-known clubs, convinced they had been relegated to the top of the local circuit.

In Mexico, the places where you have to be a coach are closedsays Antonio Torres Cervin, who, after leading the Pumas in 2013, found an oasis in Guatemalan football with Antigua and Club Municipal.

Guatemalans turn to us, because with patience we have delivered results. For example, there are cases of Luis Fernando Tena, Marvin Cabrera or Raul Arias, people who came here to cooperate with the growth of football in the region.

Recently, Tijuana’s Benjamín Mora was able to open up a new safe path for his teammates through his nine tournaments in Malaysia by signing with Atlas. His great advantage was directing the winning teamMartinez explains; However, the situation becomes more difficult for those of us who do not have a representative. Managers know they can do good business with a foreigner, because a sports director or even a president can get a good cut in their employment..

In addition to Moura, the Mexicans who are still active in the Mx League are Eduardo Arce (Puebla), Victor Manuel Vucic (Monterrey), Ignacio Ambrez (Toluca), Eduardo Ventanes (Santos), Miguel Herrera (Tijuana) and Marco Antonio. something Ruiz, who moved from temporarily to coaching Tigres after Diego Coca’s departure to the Mexican national team.
