Guillermo Almada , Santos Laguna coach, supported the microcycles project of the Mexican team . He pointed out that the calls are also important for footballers and not only for clubs.
“ We must not be selfish and we must support that illusion that they have to participate in the Mexican U-20, which for them is very important. It is a process that will surely make them grow, “he said at a press conference.
The Uruguayan strategist acknowledged that in his squad there is no player called up by Gerardo “Tata” Martino . However, he noted that he has players from different countries and others who are taken into account for the Mexico Under-20 team .

“I always say the same: it is a pride that the players can participate in different teams . Despite the fact that, since we do not have them, we cannot take care of them and not know who they are feeding them with, ”he explained.
The Warriors helmsman pointed out that it does affect the club's process if the players are selected by their country . However, he clarified that it is also a motivation for the training of each of them.
“Obviously yes, because it is a different job that points to other things. But I repeat: the motivation of being in a selection is an important part for the head of the footballer . Sometimes you win in one thing and lose in others ”, he assured.
Finally, the former player also said that footballers seek to be called to represent their nations. Therefore, he asserted that they will respect the calls, as long as each one is happy with going to their selection.

“I am sure that the illusion of any footballer is to participate in a selection . We are not the one to cut off that possibility. So if the footballer feels happy, so do we “, he concluded on the subject.
And it is that Miguel Herrera , coach of America , complained about the microcycles of Tata Martino . This after goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa did not participate in the young classic due to an annoyance before the game.
“ The Memo thing was for lending him to the national team , that's why I don't like to lend players to the national team. They are not worried about our job, why are we? I'm going to talk to Santiago (Baños) because it seems that these extra jobs don't leave anything to the clubs , of course I'm upset because they give us tired players, ”said El Piojo at a press conference.
In addition, showing annoyance with a reporter because he “did not know” what was happening internally, he assured that his other selected ones were tired for the match against Cruz Azul .

“ Jorge (Sánchez) put up with me for 90 minutes but he was already tired. (Sebastián) Córdova no longer had legs , but even so I think the team closed the game well, ”said the Azulcrema strategist, who was upset by the questions from the press after the 0-0 draw at the Azteca Stadium.
However, Robert Dante Siboldi , coach of La Maquina, supported the process of the Argentine coach . It is worth remembering that both teams had the same teams selected for the microcycle and for the friendly match on Wednesday against Guatemala.
“It is a risk, but we have to adapt. We know that the priority is selection and we try to support them . That happens when you have players with a national team ”, said the celestial helmsman at the same press conference.
