Salcido steps aside from El Tri

Mexican centerback Carlos Salcido announced his retirement from El Tri

August 29, 2014 By Oscar Rojas
Salcido played 122 matches for his National team. He was called up for Mexico’s friendly matches being held in September.

Just 24 hours after being called up by Coach Miguel Herrera, center back Carlos Salcido announced his retirement from Mexico’s National Team. Salcido called a press conference, where he let the media know why he is taking this decision:

“I’m happy with everything I had the chance to experience, but it’s time for me to step aside and let a new generation of players take this responsibility,” Salcido told the press.

Born at the city of Ocotlan, Jalisco, Salcido spoke yesterday with Herrera, urging him to call up another player for the upcoming matches against Chile and Bolivia.

“I spoke with Miguel (Herrera) cause I didn’t want anyone to retire me from El Tri. I wanted to be in the list, and then take the chance to thank everyone and step aside. After speaking with my family, they supported my decision. When I started playing I just wanted to participate in a World Cup, and I managed to be in three, go figure. It’s time to step aside and focus on helping my team” Salcido added. 

The former PSV Eindhoven and Fulham player retires after playing 122 matches and scoring ten goals for El Tri. One of his shining moments came at the Confederations Cup in 2005, scoring against Argentina. Salcido retires with a Gold medal under his belt, accomplished during the last Olympic Games.
