Mexico squad supports coach over remarks

BY foxsports • February 23, 2010

Players from Mexico's national football team have voiced support for coach Javier Aguirre, who has been criticized for making disparaging remarks about Mexico.

Aguirre has widely been reported by Mexican media as having made an insulting remark about Mexico's problems with violence and crime during an interview with a Spanish radio station last week. The coach made a public apology Sunday.

Mexico captain Gerardo Torrado is among the players standing by their coach, saying Monday that Aguirre is the team's leader and there is nothing more to say on the matter.
