Mexico in 'no rush' to decide Juan Carlos Osorio's future amid links to U.S. job

Sebastian Salazar and Herculez Gomez assess Mexico's World Cup after a last 16 exit and discuss why Liga MX could be a hindrance on El Tri's future.
Sebi Salazar sounds off on why he can't be proud of Mexico after a seventh straight World Cup exit in the last 16, even against a team like Brazil.

The Mexican Football Federation (FMF) is in no rush to decide the future of El Tri head coach Juan Carlos Osorio, amid links to various other national team roles, according to sporting director Gerardo Torrado.

Speculation over Osorio's future began almost as soon of Mexico crashed out of the World Cup at the round of 16 stage on Monday against Brazil, with one report indicating he has a precontract with the United States, others suggesting Argentina could be interested and still more linking him to the Colombia job should Jose Pekerman leave the position.

But with Yon de Luisa taking over as FMF president from Decio de Maria following the World Cup, Torrado suggested a decision on the head coach's position for the Mexican national team may not come immediately.

"Now that Yon [de Luisa] comes in, we will have to see what he wants for the next stage," said Torrado on arrival in Mexico City on Thursday morning. "First of all, an extensive evaluation of everything will be carried out. Then, calmly, a wise decision will be taken.

"There is no rush, you have to be very balanced and evaluate properly what has happened and then take a decision."

Torrado said that Osorio and the federation had agreed ahead of the World Cup to talk about his future after the tournament ends. The Colombian manager confirmed to ESPN FC before the event that people in Europe had contacted him about jobs, but indicated that he wouldn't be making any commitments before El Tri's participation at Russia was over.

Torrado stated that while Mexico wasn't able to reach the quarterfinal stage of a World Cup for the first time outside the country, the victory over Germany suggested El Tri can compete with the very best.

"Nobody gave the national team a chance in that game," said the former Mexico midfielder. "The players played a excellent match, the coach had an excellent strategy and we defeated an opponent nobody thought we would be able to beat.

"With that we started to break limits and now we have to keep working because this [change] isn't from one day to the next," he added. "We have to keep working and realize that if you defeat Germany, you can compete with anyone."
