Mexico interim coach Ricardo "Tuca" Ferretti will not be in charge of El Tri longer than four games due to his commitments with Mexican League club side Tigres, stated the Brazil-born 61-year-old at his presentation on Monday.
"I don't see any possibility of doing all the [World Cup] process, because I have a commitment with Tigres," he said at a news conference in Mexico City. "I suggested I could help with these four games."
Ferretti, who currently coaches Liga MX club U.A.N.L. Tigres, could end up managing El Tri for two September friendlies in the United States against Trinidad and Tobago and Argentina, as well as on Oct. 10 during the team's crucial one-match playoff for CONCACAF's lone berth at the 2017 Confederations Cup.
River Plate's bid to secure a third Copa Libertadores crown has been hit by injury and suspension with key players expected to miss the return leg of their final showdown against Mexican side Tigres in Buenos Aires.
