De la Torre keeps job

Jose Manuel de la Torre has kept his job as Mexico coach despite a shock semi final defeat at the Gold Cup.

Mexico were beaten by Panama, the latest negative in a poor year, with the country struggling to qualify automatically for the World Cup next year.

“We don’t justify the situation but there is still support for the present (coaching) administration,” Mexican Football Federation chief Justino Compean said.

“There were voices who didn’t agree … I still believe (De la Torre’s staff) is the best we have to take us to Brazil 2014.

“I asked (the board) for trust in the administration headed by Chepo (De la Torre), who has to recognise his mistakes.”
