New Mexico coach Ricardo Ferretti has warned that he has not been brought in as the “saviour” of the national team.
After Miguel Herrera was unceremoniously sacked in July for allegedly punching a journalist, Ferretti has been handed the role on an interim basis and will take charge of their Confederations Cup play-off against United States.
Ferretti was presented to the media on Monday and he was eager to stress that his commitment will not extend beyond four matches.
“I have not come as a saviour or anything, I come around as interim,” the Tigres UANL boss said.
“At the end of these four games, our commitment ends.”
The 61-year-old will also take the national reins for matches against Trinidad and Tobago, Argentina and a yet-to-be-determined opponent.
USA and Mexico go head-to-head on October 10, with the winner earning a spot in the 2017 Confederations Cup.
