Before Tuesday, I thought Ricardo "Tuca" Ferreti might be angling for the position of coach with the Mexican national team. He has been critical of certain decisions by both the federation (remember his tirade against a friendly in LA versus who he called Guate-peor?) and current coach Hugo Sanchez (Ferreti, a Brazilian, said recently he did not believe in calling in foreigners to the national team). He seemed to be taking the same approach that landed Sanchez the job - well, minus the back-to-back championships - as Sanchez was a harsh critic of former coach Ricardo Lavolpe.
But then on Tuesday Ferreti said otherwise.
"The only position in which I have absolutely no interest in is coach of the Mexican national team. If you were to offer me a job as a janitor, perhaps I'd be interested but the national team coaching job does not interest me. I've been a candidate four times but don't even put me in there because I won't go. Even if I were the last coach in the world I wouldn't go."
Listen to the audio of it on this mediotiempo.com story.
Tuca has had success in league before and won a championship with Chivas. When Francisco Palencia was here with Chivas, Tuca's name was one he threw out that he'd rather see in charge of El Tri instead of then-coach Ricardo Lavolpe. Both are now with Pumas.
