COPA AMÉRICA | CHICHARITO
Herrera: "We didn't know who to ask about Chicharito"
Mexico coach admits he wanted to call up his star forward for Copa América but didn't know whether to approach Real or United.
An administrative error prevented Chicharito Hernández from playing for his country at the Copa América. The Mexico striker, who will be in the squad for the Gold Cup, was available to join up with Miguel Herrera's squad in Chile but the Mexico manager has admitted he did not know who to contact to ask about the player's release from club duty; Real Madrid or Manchester United.
"We didn't know who to speak to about Chicharito playing in the Copa América and the Gold Cup. At that moment Javier was focused on Real Madrid," Herrera said about his attempts to pick a squad for the tournament in Chile.
