The president of Conmebol, Alejandro Domínguez, would be willing to allow the return of the teams that make up Liga MX to the Copa Libertadores in the coming years; This decision would be supported thanks to a series of meetings that he held with several managers of the Aztec football teams.
The information about this agreement that could provide a new sports development to Mexican clubs was revealed by the president of Grupo Pachuca, Jesús Martínez. The manager confessed to the Mexican media that the interest in achieving participation in the Conmebol tournament again is to increase the competitiveness of his league.
“When we got to the appointment, he told me: delighted of life that we receive Mexico again in the Libertadores, not only in men, but in women and in the Sub-20. There are positive things like the Conference League (in the Concacaf area), but our culture is different. All my life there has been promotion and relegation, there is much greater competitiveness in the south,” said Martínez in the Futbol Picante program of ESPN.
“That is why we had the appointment with Alejandro Domínguez. In the contract, the previous leaders kept 95% and kept 5%. Now that I was in conversation with him and they told us that in the first phase the Mexicans can win almost 70 percent of the television contract,” he added.
Likewise, the manager was convinced that this project will support Liga MX, its players and especially the fans in every possible way.
“Where before they paid 100,000 dollars per game, now they pay 1.3 million dollars per game, plus tickets and plunder; He has modernized it (Domínguez). You will see in eight or 10 years the potential that Conmebol has, ”he stressed.
“There must be respect towards the confederation, but it is also necessary to see that it is also convenient for them. Within my illusion is that the United States and Canada also send teams to the Libertadores. The doors are open, nothing more is needed than whoever arrives or the president does his job ”, he concluded.
The teams from Mexico stopped participating in the Conmebol Copa Libertadores in 2016 and before that they had had great prominence; on two occasions they even reached the final thanks to Cruz Azul and Chivas de Guadalajara.
