The vast majority of players not only from Liga MX, but from all over the world, aim to play professionally in Europe. However, not only do they have that desire, the coaches also have that dream in their careers, and Miguel Herrera is no exception. Therefore, he knows that to achieve that long-awaited leap, he only has to continue winning titles with America.
The example for The lice It is Javier Aguirre, a Mexican coach who for a large part of his career has managed in the Old Continent, currently in Osasuna. However, Herrera is aware that what Basque What helped him was having played himself in European football, which is why the teams already know him, contrary to the majority of Mexican strategists.
“I have two thoughts that are my maximum illusion: the first is to direct in the soccer of Europe, but the reality is that no offer has come to me. Javier Aguirre played in Europe, in Osasuna, and they came looking for him, after being successful in Mexico, but because before he played in Europe. I think that the Mexican coach is not coming to look for him because they do not know him. Hopefully Javier Aguirre continues to recommend us, or European technicians who direct or directed here; like Míchel (coach of the Pumas UNAM), or Pedro Caixinha (he directed Santos and Cruz Azul), that they talk about the Mexican coach, that we know how to do things well and there opens up a possibility for us ”.
As for the other thought that is his illusion, it is the one that he had already commented on previous occasions, making a career in America in a similar way to what Ricardo Ferreti has done in Tigres, or beyond, as what Alex Ferguson did in Manchester United, who led more than 2o years to the Red devils.
“I would like to imitate Alex Ferguson at Manchester United or Ricardo Ferretti at the Tigers, who have made old bones in their teams, that excites me. As long as America wants me here, we will be here. I want to be a guy who makes history in this club, it would be something extraordinary. “
