Hugo Sanchez points the finger at the real culprits behind Mexico's failure at Copa America

The failure of the Mexican national football team in the Copa America once again opens the debate on what needs to be done to improve the state not only of the national team, but of the entire organisation of the Mexican Football Federation and Liga MX.

While blame for the elimination from the Copa America is being apportioned between the players, the technical direction of Jaime Lozano, perhaps the greatest figure in the history of Mexican football, Hugo Sanchez, the precarious situation has one culprit: the owners and the directors.

The facilities of the Mexican Football Federation located in the outskirts of the city of Toluca received this Wednesday morning the Mexican football club owners of Liga MX, who came to study the national team and see if a change at the helm is needed, now that there is time and that the World Cup is two years away.

However, the members of the Assembly of Owners could not agree on the fate of the Mexican coach, who by the way did not return to the country with the players and the rest of the coaching staff, after the elimination against Ecuador in the group stage, a failure that adds to the defeat in the final of the last edition of the CONCACAF Nations League.
