Miguel Herrera terminated as Mexico’s head coach

miguel herreraMexico’s seventh CONCACAF Gold Cup is now bittersweet.

It has now been overcasted because of the actions of its head coach.

One day after the Gold Cup final Miguel Herrera allegedly punched Christian Martinoli, a mexican TV reporter, in the neck at the Philadelphia International Airport.

Martinoli’s criticism of the team may be responsible for setting off Herrera.

As a repercussion, Herrera was kicked off the squad Tuesday.

He began coaching the Mexico national team in 2013 and was the most tenured coach since Jose Manuel de la Torre, who coached the team from  2011-2013.

During Herrera’s tenure, Mexico played 37 games and compiled 19 wins, 7 draws and 11 losses.

Now was probably not the best time for the head coach to be fired.

Mexico has a playoff match against the U.S. on October 9 at the Rose Bowl to determine the regions representative in the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia, host of the 2018 Fifa World Cup.
