Raúl Jiménez backs Mexico head coach Tata Martino
The Mexican national team striker has his sights set on the World Cup and asks for more patience for Martino.
A few weeks before the start of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, the Mexican national team continues with its preparation games and will face Peru and Colombia in friendly matches this month. One of the players who returned to the squad is striker Raúl Jiménez, who has not had many minutes with Wolves due to various injuries.
The Club América youth product spoke about coach Gerardo Martino, who has been questioned over the team’s poor performance in recent games. After the severe criticism, the Wolves man asked for patience and confidence from the fans ahead of the next few games.
“We must be united. We are all in the same boat, and he is doing things right. He is working well. When we win are we the best, and when we lose we are not the worst. We must always bring out the best in everyone. We must ignore what is said outside and within the group pull together,“ Jiménez said in an interview with Mediotiempo.
Mexico face Poland first in World Cup
For now, Jiménez is preparing to play in the World Cup as a starter under Martino and he is currently winning the race against Santiago Gimenez, Rogelio Funes Mori and Henry Martín for that starting spot in attack. The Mexico national team will begin its journey at the 2022 World Cup on 22 November, when they face a Poland side led by Robert Lewandowski.
