Mexican coach lambastes 'know nothing' press

MEXICO CITY, May 30 (Reuters) - Mexico coach Ricardo La Volpe, an Argentine known for his gruff manner, laid into the Mexican press on Tuesday, swearing and angrily accusing them of knowing nothing about soccer.

La Volpe was upset by an interview in a Mexican sports daily that quoted forward Francisco Fonseca as complaining about being left on the bench for the friendly against France on Saturday which Mexico lost 1-0.

'You know nothing about football, nothing,' La Volpe told a reporters in a hotel in the Dutch town of Noordwijk, where Mexico were preparing for a friendly on Thursday against the Netherlands.

'Don't break my balls between now and the World Cup,' said La Volpe, who has often courted controversy in his 3 ½ years in charge despite a series of good results.

La Volpe, a goalkeeper in his playing days, has frequently been criticised by local media. He has been involved in a public feud with former Mexico striker Hugo Sanchez who is often touted as his successor.
