Following the worst defeat in Mexico’s history, Ricardo Osorio’s role as head coach seems on shaky ground.
It’s unclear yet whether the coach will remain the boss of El Tri despite starting his tenure with the team with nine straight victories.
But the way Mexico lost against Chile, a 7-0 thrashing in the Copa America quarter finals, has left many questioning whether he’s the right man for the job going forward.
Osorio himself took much of the blame following the shocking loss.
“What happened today was shameful, a football accident, it was a very poor performance and I offer my apologies to everyone and all the Mexico fans,” he said during a postgame news conference, according the Daily Mail. “I got it all wrong, I erred in my choices for the squad, I assume that responsibility, none of our players were at their best.”
Brazil axed Dunga as the team’s coach earlier in the tournament as his team failed to reach the knockout stage.
