Real Betis veteran Guardado critical of Liga MX over Mexico World Cup struggles

Real Betis veteran Andres Guardado is critical of Liga MX as Mexico struggle in the World Cup.

Regarding Mexico's lack of goals, the midfielder acknowledged his concern and also launched a criticism of Liga MX, although he made it clear that this is not the right moment to analyse Mexican soccer.

“The issue of goals worries us, but it concerns us more to see how we can achieve it, because it is true that we are lacking them. What message for the fans? I can't motivate people with words, it's very difficult. You have to show it on the pitch," he said.

“We have a very important match and we need to win. And if it is by a lot of goals, better. There are many things that need to be changed in the Mexican league, which do not benefit us to compete at the highest level, but now I would not like to get into that. One day after the game is not the time to analyze that."

Regarding the criticism received of Gerardo Martino, coach of the Mexican National Team, Guardado stressed that 'Tata' is in a difficult position as he is exposed to accusations both from fans and from media.

“There has always been a lot of criticism. The manager's chair is a difficult place to be when you are constantly being judged," he added.
