The Mexican winger Hirving Lozano has had a great season so far with the Dutch Eredivisie team and praised his former league.

“He used to paint in all the televisions while we watched our rivals videos, before the matches.”

“I would say he’s a football perfectionist,” Garza added.

“I think what I liked more about him is that he knows a lot about the game.”

Martino is Mexico’s new coach and one day might get to coach El Tri against Greg Garza’s United States national team.
