The Serbian DT, who knows very well the pressure that exists on the Tri bench, said that criticism and attacks on the coach are nothing new and defended Gerardo Martino, who raised doubts during the World Cup tie due to the team’s actions . Despite this, he asked fans to trust him, no matter how difficult the games leading up to Qatar 2022 may have seemed.
“Thats nothing new; when there are no results the coaches are criticized, but you have to have confidence in the coach and keep going”, He commented in an interview for Mediotiempo.

For him, preparation is the key to everything and he is confident that Mexico will do a good job and be able to achieve their goals, although he warned that they must go step by step and not think about the famous “fifth game” from the beginning.
“Mexico must prepare in the best way, because with effort and intelligence you can get more than a fifth game. They should not think about the fifth game, better dThey should think about playing how it should be and remember that the only thing that counts is the next action,” he explained.
Shortly after, he corrected and asserted that in addition to enjoying each step of the process, they must set themselves a higher goal than the quarterfinals, since Mexico has overcome that barrier before, alluding to the moment in which El Tri achieved it with him as coach in 1986.
“You don’t have to weigh only in a fifth game, because Mexico they have already played five games, they must think of a sixth and be better than the 1986 team”, he concluded.
