What They're Saying: Tata Martino

"What I think is that Greg and I have a quite similar amount of time [in charge of our teams]. He probably had more knowledge of MLS when he took over than I had of Mexican football and the Mexican league. I think that as a general panorama, our players are competing in leagues that are better than the players in the United States national team and I also think that the Mexican league is above MLS, which means it's very probable that [Berhalter] is right and that from his position he sees the Mexican national team as a little bit better than the U.S. in a general context."
