You're not that pretty. You're not that special.
Enough already with the "We are Mexico, inscrutable and impenetrable" act that some veterans on that national team have been pulling lately.
I'm not singling them out - I thought the same thing when Bruce Arena's time was up and players with the U.S. team were talking about how different American players were.
In fact, every country has a certain temperament and style, but the ball is round and the game is 90 minutes long. The idea that professional soccer players are too "precious" to be coached by someone of a different culture, especially when so many aspire their entire lives to leave their home country and play abroad for a foreign coach is fairly ridiculous.
Yes, it might be easier to have perfect linguistic and cultural understanding, but what works and is worthwhile isn't always easy - especially when it comes to learning something new to push a team to the next level.
Sven Goran Eriksson may or may not succeed with Mexico. It's clear that there are challenges, but he has proven himself an able instructor. If players are willing to listen, he could lead them in a new direction. If they waste time on the drama of how they're not understood, or their Mexicaness isn't appreciated, or that Sven won't eat any mole or doesn't recognize a single Luis Miguel song, then they're in trouble.
As the U.S. would have been if Klinsy had taken charge of the team and run into a bunch of static for being German. It's just silly.
Because whether they're from the U.S. or Mexico, the one common point still stands between a squad and any coach. They are soccer players (or coaches) first and foremost. If everyone does their job well, that's all that matters. If the coach can't do that job, find one who can, wherever that individual may come from.
