Chepo: I Intend to Fulfill My Contract

MOST COMMENTED

Following his team’s 2-1 loss to Panama in the Concacaf Gold Cup semifinal on Thursday, Mexico coach Jose Manuel “Chepo” de la Torre admitted that he isn’t sure about his job security. The loss, Mexico’s second at the hands of Panama during the Gold Cup, left El Tri’s 2013 record at five wins, five draws and four losses.

"I have a contract for a process and I intend to fulfill it," de la Torre said. "I have no limits. Those who hired me can decide. At the end of the day, I am the person in charge together with my work group, because we were the ones who chose the players and tried to coach them; the goals haven’t been reached, we fell far short," he said.

"I signed a contract whose final objective was to qualify for the World Cup (Brazil 2014) and I will put all my efforts to it,” he added. "I have always trusted the quality of the Mexican player. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t have taken it on."
