WORLD CUP 2022

The now departed manager of the Mexico national team has hundreds of games under his belt, so we assess how successful he’s been.
Gerardo Martino stepped down as manager of the Mexican team shortly after the final whistle blew in Qatar as his men put in a very positive performance beating Saudi Arabia 2-1. It wasn’t enough and, on goal difference, Poland progress in their place
Martino gone from Mexico: career stats
It was a tense ending to Wednesday’s World Cup fixtures, with a long period near the end when a single goal in either Mexico’s match or that of Argentina vs Poland. As it turned out, for the first time since 1978 El Tri fail to make it to the knockout stage.
“My contract ended as soon as the referee blew the final whistle,” said Tata at the end. So let’s look back at his managerial career to date, both for clubs and country.
With over 400 games under his belt -- check out an even more detailed analysis from our friends at Sofascore -- Martino has won more than half the games that he has managed in. His Mexico spell ranks him joint second in win ratio and he has maintained a solid performance across the likes of Atlanta, Barcelona, Newell’s Old Boys and the Paraguay national team. For all of those appointments he oversaw more than 50 games each.
