Added to this statement, it is intended to reduce the number of non-Mexican players going from eight to seven on the playing field.
“Starting next season, the limit of foreigners will be reduced to 7 players in the lineup, which implies a 50% reduction compared to foreigners 10 years ago,” said Arriola regarding this change.
The relegation of Liga MX is an issue that has been on hold for several seasons, so this will continue to be analyzed through a “comprehensive solution,” said the director of the Mexican soccer league.
The clubs and the FMF will seek to create a joint strategy to promote the export of Mexican talent abroad with the objective of “strengthening the National Team”, since talent abroad has been declining in recent years.
In addition, although the formats of two Leagues will be maintained, a format will be created for a new annual champion that will be based on the points obtained throughout the tournament, this with the intention of rewarding the effort of the entire campaign.
Until now, it has not been determined who will be the Technical Director of the Mexican National Team after the dismissal of Gerardo “Tata” Martino after his failure in Qatar 2022.
