The veteran standout goalkeeper of Las Aguilas de America and for the National team of Mexico will miss from 4-6 weeks due to an injury.
Prior to the start of the Clasico Joven at the Estadio Azteca last weekend, news broke out the goalkeeper of America, Guillermo Ochoa, would not be able to play and will miss at least 4-6 weeks due to calf injury. With the injury that Ochoa picked up, Oscar Jimenez took over the position and has done a decent job as of now with only conceding two goals that came in the recent game in the Jornada 13 between America versus Pumas which ended in a 2-2 overall score. Also the 0-0 draw versus Cruz Azul, Jimenez did his job well.
Ochoa injury alarmed at the moment Miguel “Piojo” Herrera current coach of America who made a strong statement against Gerardo Martino, the coach of the national team of Mexico stating that injury was picked up during quick international duty session prior to their games versus Guatemala and Nerthlands.
“Memo’s injury was due to lending him to Mexico. That’s why I don’t like to lend them. They are not worried about our job, why should we? I’m going to talk to Santiago Baños because it seems that these extra jobs don’t leave anything to the clubs.”
Although the statement is clear, it makes sense what Herrera is stating but then again lets recall that Herrera once was the coach for the national team of Mexico and we all can remember asking for support when it was his duty to uplift Mexico during his tenure. So it would be nice for Herrera to ease up a bit with Martino because El Tri has been without action for almost a year in the international duties.
We all hope for a speedy recovery for Ochoa and hopefully regain (which he should) his high posture for Las Aguilas and El Tri.
