Christian Martinoli: The man who brought down Miguel Herrera

ESPN's Fernando Palomo joins the ESPN FC crew to react to Miguel Herrera's firing as the Mexico head coach.

When Miguel Herrera released his statement responding to his firing by the Mexican federation, he never mentioned commentator Christian Martinoli by name, but there was a specific reference to the TV Azteca personality.

"I understand that this is not an attitude becoming of a Mexico national team coach, despite all the criticism and taunts against myself and my family."

Indeed, though others have criticized Herrera for different things, Martinoli may now claim to be the one who ended Herrera's...

Mexican federation needs to fix issues before choosing Herrera's successor

ESPN's Fernando Palomo joins the ESPN FC crew to react to Miguel Herrera's firing as the Mexico head coach.

Hard facts don't often lie.

Now that Miguel Herrera has been unceremoniously booted out of his job as the Mexico national team head coach, El Tri has had six head coaches since the 2010 World Cup and 14 since 1999. That is an average of just over 13 months per coach.

In comparison, the United States has had three since the turn of the century.

It may not seem like a huge issue in itself, or the be all and end all. After all, it was Mexico, not the U.S., who won the Gold Cup, showed the better football...

Miguel Herrera's Mexico tenure a roller coaster of highs and lows

The Mexico Football Federation voted to sack coach Miguel Herrera following an alleged incident that took place at Philadelphia International Airport.
The ESPN FC crew react to reports that Mexico boss Miguel Herrera punched a journalist following their Gold Cup win, and Craig Burley is not finding too many positives in their record seventh Gold Cup title.

If Miguel "El Piojo" Herrera's fall from grace, culminating in Tuesday's firing, seemed like a spectacular descent, it's because of the heights that he reached at times during his time in charge of Mexico's national team. In 2013, suffering through a historically bad run of form, Mexico's national team needed a hero, and though the pudgy Herrera didn't seem like the typical version of one, that's exactly what he became to many -- at least for a while.

Herrera already had a whiff of the supernatural...

Mexico's Miguel Herrera falls on his own sword

Miguel Herrera can have no complaints.

The bizarre alleged attack by the now former Mexico coach on a TV commentator at Philadelphia International Airport on Monday, just hours after lifting the Gold Cup, was indefensible; a moment of madness from a personality who has flirted with controversy over the years and missed out on a World Cup as a player because of his hot-headedness.

"He can't stay, what he did isn't OK," one Liga MX club director told ESPN Mexico. "How stupid, because he'd got through...

Five potential candidates to replace Miguel Herrera as Mexico coach

The ESPN FC crew react to reports that Mexico boss Miguel Herrera punched a journalist following their Gold Cup win, and Craig Burley is not finding too many positives in their record seventh Gold Cup title.

What's next for Mexico after Miguel "Piojo" Herrera? On Tuesday, the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) announced that after nearly two full years, the 47-year-old manager would no longer be in charge of the Mexican national team.

Herrera leaves El Tri after plenty of exciting and infamous moments, as well as big shoes for the next person in charge to fill. Now the question is: Who will replace Herrera? There seems to be no clear-cut leading option, and it's easy to make an argument against many...

The ESPN FC crew react to reports that Mexico boss Miguel Herrera punched a journalist following their Gold Cup win, and Craig Burley is not finding too many positives in their record seventh Gold Cup title.

PHILADELPHIA -- Mexico's summer ended on a bright note on Sunday by lifting the Gold Cup, following disappointment at the Copa America, the Under-20 World Cup and Women's World Cup.

El Tri managed to ride out the criticism on its journey to defeat Jamaica 3-1 in the final in Philadelphia, but issues clearly remain and the fall-out is set to rumble on.

Here are five things learned from Mexico's bumpy but triumphant 2015 Gold Cup.

1. Controversy not going anywhere, even in victory
