The Mexico Football Federation (FMF) has fired general sporting director Gerardo Torrado, sporting director of national teams Ignacio Hierro and men’s Under-20 coach Luis Perez amid a major restructure following poor results for the women’s and youth teams.Mexico women’s manager Monica Vergara keeps her role for now, but will be reviewed by the new management structure when it is in place.
The news was officially announced on Wednesday by FMF president Yon de Luisa following a series of underwhelming displays by the women’s team and the men’s U20s.
De Luisa told a press conference:
The results obtained in recent weeks by the men’s U20 team and the senior women’s national team, which signified a heavy blow to Mexican soccer, and above all, for our fans, forces us to act.
He said replacements for those sacked would be announced in the next few days.
