With Javier Aguirre replaced by Chepo de la Torre as the boss of the Tri and with the Gold Cup set to start later this summer, Corona was poised for a comeback. He was named to the final squad and again looked like a decent bet to be the starter (though not as much as last year, when Ochoa was beset by a bad case of the yips). Then he did this on Sunday, in the semifinals of La Liguilla, with his team moments way from elimination at the hands of Morelia.
Now he's off the team again, with de la Torre saying:
"The athletic part is important, very important, lifting trophies, winning cups, but the example for the fans, for the young people also is..."Breaking out the role model stick. Ouch. The president also got into the act, saying with regard to climate change,
"The earth can also heat up, just like Cruz Azul-Morelia".Calderón make funny!
