Lavolpe says “Me or Blanco!”

Mexican coach Ricardo Lavolpe has threatened to walk out of the job if someone tries to include Cuauhtemoc Blanco in his World Cup squad against his will.
Lavolpe: “My players already know what my idea for the World Cup is, but if in the Federation they think that I haven’t announced the best players, I think that they still have time to end my contract and hire a new coach.
“From the list of 26 players that I have announced, three will not be travelling to Germany and there will not be any other recall for new players that haven’t been included in the list that I have already announced.”
Mexican soccer is beginning to look like Nigerian soccer.
Too much politics, and the game suffers.
Prediction: Mexico will not make it past the first round. They will lose to Iran and Portugal. Maybe even Angola!

  1. Mexico 1, Venezuela 0

    A penalty by striker Omar Bravo gave Mexico a 1-0 win over Venezuela. That’s all they could do. La Volpe must be a tad worried… But not worried enough to call up Blanco….
