Mexico sack Martino moments after their WC exit

Mexico sack Tata Martino moments after their Group stage elimination

November 30, 2022 By Oscar Rojas
The Mexican side failed to make it past the group stage for the first time since 1978, and there seemed to be no debate about the coach's fate.

Mexico's World Cup campaign came to an abrupt end today, and even before fans could digest their fate, the team and their coach have decided to part ways.

Speaking in the post.match press conference, Mexico's Argentine boss Gerardo "Tata" Martino revealed that his term as El Tri's boss has come to an end. Martino revealed that there would be no intention from any of the parties involved to extend his stay with Mexico, even if they will be hosting the 2026 World Cup along with Canada and the United States.

The former Barcelona boss was harshly criticized back home for leaving players such as Santiago Giménez, Diego Lainez, and more importantly, "Chicharito" Hernández, who has not played a single minute for El Tri since 2019 due to a disciplinary action taken by the coach.

Added to that, sources close to the team have revealed that Martino had no intention to extend his contract due to a desire to be closer to his family, who live in Buenos Aires.

Martino admitted full responsibility for Mexico's poor performance, which led to their first group stage exit since 1978.

"I can't say anything to the fans, I will tak full responsibility for this disappointment. I am really sad about it, and all I can say is that I will take the blame for this failure, which is something we had not experienced for the past seven World Cups,"Martino added.
