While it remains to wait a few hours for confirmation, the Argentine strategist will be who takes command of the Aztec selected
Argentinian Gerardo 'Tata' Martino is the name that most strongly sounds to take over the reins of the Mexican national soccer team, a team that although enjoyed some stability in the last period of the hand of the Colombian Juan Carlos Osorio, today in day continues to be in the shadow of the great cast of the world, a reality that seems to be the albiceleste strategist in charge of changing. Now, is the Tata the ideal option to take the reins of Mexico? From LatamPost we tell you the four reasons why I could become one.
A race full of triumphs
Although currently, the 'Tata' is managing a team not as important to the elite of football as it is the Atlanta City of MLS, his performance in that set, as well as in almost all he has directed, call themselves selections or clubs, It has been totally successful.
As Infobae says, in just two years of the project, Martino's painting has become one of the strongest in the entire league. In this regular season, in addition to setting several records, finished in second place in the Eastern Conference with 69 units.

However, not only the news of the 'Tata' is good, because his name has almost always been linked to the triumph. Details Infobae that, among its most important results stand out: two Copa América sub championships with Argentina, a quarterfinal with Paraguay in South Africa 2010, an Argentine league championship with a scoring record included in front of the Newell's Old Boys, plus a Super Spain Cup with Barcelona, perhaps its less brilliant period.
Although it is evident that the roster of the Mexican national team is not one of the most powerful in the world, they already demonstrated, especially in that inaugural match of the World Cup Russia, before the champion of that moment as it was Germany, that a well-connected team can everything, and it will be again the group headed by Chuky Lozano, Chicharito Hernández and Carlos Vela, who already bet on Professor Juan Carlos Osorio and his philosophy, in charge of supporting Martino in search of glory.
A pressure of the environment?
For no one is it a secret that in Mexico the fans and press only serve to win to be happy, and when this does not happen the environment becomes more than hostile, a reality with which although Tata will have to fight, it will enjoy The full confidence of the Femexfut, which is known unofficially, will make him a contract of no less than four years.
The website of the Informador of Mexico points out that the contractual agreement between the Aztec cast and Martino would be for 2.2 million dollars a year, with a complete cycle of four years of contract, which would take it, at least, until Qatar 2022, ideal scenario proposed by the steering train for the American team, which as they did with Osorio, will downplay the environment and bet on long-term success.
The challenge I was looking for
However, Martino's is not only knowledge and trust, because the most important thing is that he, as he has done throughout his career, always seeks to renew his goals and challenges to transcend and without disrespecting anyone. He did it with Newell's, he repeated it in Paraguay, Argentina and now in Atlanta, demonstrating not only his versatility but his ability to reinvent himself. Demonstrated in the words of Darren Eales, president of his current club in MLS, who told Mundohispanico.com, that Martino already expressed to him, in a very respectful way, the need to take a new turn and challenge his sports career with something of a greater requirement.
"He wants a new challenge. When we talked about his departure from the club he told us that it is not about money, nothing like that, but that he wants to find a new challenge and in Mexico, he will have it, "Eales said.
