Faitelson did not leave aside the sporting point and combined it with the commercial way in which the Mexican National Team has been managed. He recognized De Luisa the commercial achievements of Tri but he pointed out that the hits on the court are the ones that should speak louder than the marketing part.
The sports analyst pointed out that the only thing that will be reflected on the administration of Yon de Luisa will be on the court, in the victories that he makes Tri.
“Yon de Luisa has made a great effort to take the Mexican team to more developed levels of marketing and commercialization and he has done well, but his management will depend on the court results in Qatar 2022. That is what will make a difference in your administration ”, he published on his networks.
On the taste and impact it generated on soccer fans, Faitelson explained that the only thing the fans should be concerned about is the transparency and the results of the Selection in international competitions, mainly in the World Cup.
“Since when does the shield of a soccer federation have to like us? We have to like their decisions, their transparency and above all, the style, the form and the results of a selection … “
The change in the image of the Aztec team is the seventh in its history. In 1930 the first official shield of the National Team was presented, since then every three World Cup cycles -an estimate of every 13 years- makes a renovation in its image.
