Juan Martín Montes | MEDIOTIEMPO Ciudad de México, viernes 17 de Octubre del 2014 Miguel Herrera ha debutado a 13 jugadores en su primer año al frente del Tri El “Chepo” tuvo un promedio similar en los 31 meses que duró en el cargo La comparación no será odiosa porque Miguel Herrera tiene poco que envidiarle al ciclo de su antecesor si de debutar jugadores se trata. El entrenador actual de la Selección Mexicana ha mantenido un ritmo similar al de José Manuel de la Torre y Luis Fernando Tena para brindar primeras experiencias con la camiseta verde, sobre todo en la etapa “postmundialista” donde el “Piojo” le ha abierto las puertas a los jóvenes. En los 31 meses que se mantuvo al frente del combinado azteca, de febrero del 2011 a septiembre del 2013, el “Chepo” debutó a 31 jugadores, un ritmo que parecería marcar el de Herrera, quien el próximo lunes cumplirá un año como timonel nacional y en ese lapso le ha dado minutos por primera vez en el Tri a 13 elementos
