In the Mexican Federation, they enthusiastically celebrated this success, but the next day, they had begun to develop a plan for the gold medal, and the plan has been drawn up. There is no room for improvisation. At MARCA Claro, we reveal its main focus.
From hand Martin Matabosch (Martí Matabosch) (Barcelona, 1987), the sports science coordinator of the Mexican team, we “penetrated” into the Federation to understand the smallest details, which were designed to be one of the candidates to win the gold medal. Germany, France, Spain, Argentina, Brazil…They may be opponents to the hungry and ambitious Mexico team. This is how Matasbosch describes it in the dialogue through zooming.
“For various reasons, I am very happy. Because he is still the champion, winning the game and representing us in a way that we think represents ourselves. Mexicans feel that they have certain values and principles when they see this team participating in a game. What happened before this Olympics was that when they saw this team’s game, they were already shocked, and what I want to see is Mexico. “

“Some things are not negotiable. We want to win in a certain way. We have some principles: aggressive, vertical, decisive and offensive. Try to do this.”
“The relationship with the club is professional. The club’s commitment is to provide services to the players.

You have to talk to the club and tell them the plan and roadmap. Our goal is Become a champion. We will not do crazy things. We will use the players and the revenue they receive from the club, plus the contribution that the coach wants to build in order to become a champion. All of this.”
“From today, we are very clear about the details of the immediate preparation process for these games. It has been defined, so we are going to die. Anything can happen, such as injury, etc. Strength is preparation. During the process, how do we prepare? Letting players compete in a certain way will bring us closer to the championship title we want to achieve. The weakness is uncertainty, because in the era of Covid-19, if we can participate in the previous games, we will be able to walk on to us The day we want…We must work hard to ensure that this does not affect our spirit and prepare for change. The burning phase and the adaptation phase should reach the first game of the Olympic Games with a full backpack, weather, jet lag, and body Conditions…We will do our best.
“We are very clear that this process is a priority. Just as Martino publicly expressed himself in the Mexico Under-23 team, he is showing it every day. He is very smart and has a wealth of experience. He is a smart one of us. Football guys, we learn a lot from him and his people because they are very open.”
“In addition to being talented, they also have a high level of professionalism. No one knows what will happen in the future, but they show that they are always eager to have greater ambitions and become better. They participated in the Olympics at the age of 23. Preliminaries. With a history of 150 to 200 games, in the first division, this fully demonstrates your level of work in basic strength and the opportunities for young people in the first team. Finally, you have a competitive, young, professional In the same way, everything around is moving in this direction. The Federation promotes many projects so that everything can develop. In short, everything is under his own burden. Feels capable, and if he feels he will fly towards The new competitive challenge is not only in Europe. In Mexico, the competition of the alliance is becoming increasingly fierce. In a short period of time, it will achieve a leap in quality, which will surprise us.”
“He is an experienced coach. He has made a lot of preparations for Europe. He has made a lot of preparations. He is very concerned about growth in various situations. One of his many advantages that attracts me most is his problem-solving The way. The players and how they respond to his way of being. He is talented. This is his talent.
