Do you have it in your plans? Gerardo Martino met with Marcelo Flores and made an unusual request

Gerardo Martino is in Europe at the moment to observe the different Mexican players who play in the old continent. Although a few weeks ago, the information emerged that Marcelo Flores would not go to Qatar 2022, it seems that the situation has changed. Well, ‘Tata’ had a meeting with the Real Oviedo player to make a peculiar request.

And it is that as reported by Cadena COPE, the Argentine coach asked Flores not to attend the call of the Under 20 team in the coming weeks. This is because Martino wants Flores to play regularly and accumulate as many minutes as possible at Real Oviedo.

This way, and if everything goes as expected, Flores could accumulate more minutes that would endorse him to be among the 26 selected to go to the World Cup. In turn, this is handy for Flores since maintaining continuity in his club, he could be summoned for the FIFA date in September, when Mexico will play against Peru and Colombia.

Flores would have his place assured in Qatar 2022

ESPN assured ‘Tata’ Martino would have told Flores that he has planned to travel with the national team to the World Cup. However, it is not yet clear if it will be as one of the 26 players who will play in the tournament or as one of the backup players who will train with the national team so that the Mexican can add the minutes with Real Oviedo will be decisive.
