The support the players receive from the supporters, particularly at home and when they play for the national team, is one of the best aspects of Mexican football.
Mexico and the United States are geographically adjacent to one another, which results in a significant talent exchange, with Mexican players gaining opportunities to flourish in Major League Soccer.
When Herrera first arrived in Houston, he experienced this special support, which he has praised.
“There are a lot of Mexicans, a lot of Latin people,” he added.
“For me, it’s a source of pride to represent Mexico, to be Mexican. When I came with the national team, people showed us their affection and made us feel at home.
“We have met a lot of Mexican people who have shown us their affection, I am very grateful to all these people who support us.”
Herrera intends to participate as a player for Mexico’s squad in the 2026 World Cup, which will be hosted in a unique manner by three countries: America, Mexico, and Canada.
John Herdman has been officially named the new coach of MLS based club Toronto FC. Starting on October 1st, the 48-year-old will take over as Toronto FC’s next head coach in the MLS.
Herdman became the coach of Canada in January 2018 before leading the North American giants to the 2022 FIFA World Cup, their first appearance in 36 years.
“I’m keen to start this new opportunity with Toronto FC,” he said. “It’s the right time for a new challenge.” Toronto fired former head coach Bob Bradley in June and are currently towards the bottom of the MLS standings.
