While ‘El Piojo’ directed the Tecos of the UAG, Leaño was part of the staffHowever, when the now ‘sacred herd’ strategist confessed his intention to be a coach, Herrera could not contain his laughter and mocked him since he did not see him capable.
This was recently revealed by the now coach of the Tigres, since in an interview for the Mother Soccer PodcastHerrera confessed that he laughed in Leaño’s face after learning of his desire to direct.
“Marcelo Michel Leaño approached me and told me, I’m going to be a coach. I honestly laughed my ass off”Herrera commented for the mentioned program.
