Marcelo Bielsa is still a candidate for the post of head of the Mexican national team, said Jon de Luisa.

February will be decisive for the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) to complete the selection and hand over the national team team to one of the options it has ahead of either Miguel “Piojo” Herrera or Guillermo Almada, but there is still a name that haunts the El Tri bench and that is the name of Marcelo Bielsa.”old temptation” for managers.

“Loco” Bielsa, always eccentric in his actions and demands for a coaching position, is the most difficult of all candidates. In response to ESPN’s tricky Futbol Picante table, FMF President Jon de Luisa said the Argentine strategist was getting right to the point.

“Yes there was an approach”, – the manager answered the question of David Feitelson. De Luisa added that they have also spoken to other international candidates, but the list has already been reduced.

“There is a possibility and even more if one of the owners of the MX League club contacts him (…) He is on the lists,” Yon added about the Marcelo Bielsa option on the bench of the Mexican national team.

But Jon de Luisa, in addition to confirming names or preliminary negotiations, made it clear that FMF is looking in terms of profile for a new coach and conditions that will be given to him so that he does his job well and avoids new failuresafter Tata Martino at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

“The characteristics and conditions that are necessary for an incoming specialist to have a positive cycle in the short, medium and long term are important,” De Luisa explained.

Marcelo Bielsa, the coach Mexico needs?

From the last cycle of Gerardo Martino, the Mexican national team can take both positive aspects and a large number of negative ones: indiscipline, bad decisions, dominant groups, lack of cohesion and others.

Nose Marcelo Bielsa, who is much loved by players and coaches for his charisma and career. Will these problems end in football?

Already in the past Loco Bielsa twice refused to take the helm of the Aztecs because they did not meet the requirements of the project. Column El Francotirador even recently assured that the Argentine will seek to “revive Mexican football.”

Despite admiration and affection for him in football, Bielsa won only three titles in his entire career.: two with Newell’s Old Boy of Argentina and one more recently with Leeds United of England for the EFL Championship or English promotion.

In terms of countries, he led Argentina from 1998 to 2004 without much success, having survived the failure of the World Cup between Korea and Japan in 2002, when the South Americans did not reach the 1/8 finals.

With the Chile national team, Bielsa was able to lay the foundations of a team that played in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and then Jorge Sampaoli won the 2015 and 2016 Copa América, and was also able to play in the World Cup.
