For the last few days, Mexico national team coach Hugo Sanchez has been rather quiet. No post-match assessment. No post-training thoughts. No brash comments. No humble comments... well, not that there are ever too many of those.

Mexican sports daily Ovaciones tells us why:

After chants of "La Volpe, La Volpe" rang during the Under-23's friendly against Chile on Tuesday, national team coach Hugo Sanchez has yet to talk and is apparently upset over what happened after not speaking to the media after the match or following training yesterday (Wednesday).

Of course, similar chants were heard when Ricardo Lavolpe was Mexico's coach. But in those instances, it was "Hugo, Hugo" chants that rang out during games. Now that the shoe is somewhat on the other foot - Hugo does not enjoy the overwhelming amount of support these days as when he took over - perhaps the way he is dealing with it is to avoid the press.

Hugo's just getting what he gave out when LaVolpe was coaching the national team and Huugol was criticizing him on a minute-my-minute basis.

Oye, Hugo, revancha en una bruja, no?
