JOHANNESBURG, June 27 (Xinhua) -- Mexican national soccer coach Javier Aguirre Sunday said he will leave after the frustration of not changing the soccer history of the team at the World Cup.
Mexico lost 3-1 to Argentina in the round of 16 at the South Africa World Cup, which prompted Aguirre to say that Mexico has to seek a new coach for the next four year and to take advantage of the new generation of players.
"I am not happy, I am the main responsible, I was not able to change the history," Aguirre said during a press conference.
Mexico has attended 13 World Cups and was only able to get the ticket to the quarterfinals when it hosted the World Cup in 1986.
Aguirre said that he will not be related to the national team in the coming years and Mexico has to continue its road and "chose a new coach".
"It is a wonderful generation of Mexican players, which have to be used. There are 10 or 12 players that will be in your years," Aguirre added.
Commenting on the play with Argentina, Aguirre said Mexico "was superior to Argentina in the first minutes".
"I can say that we face the match with the same conditions. For me the
Mexican team was superior during the first minutes, we did more," Aguirre said.
When the team lost the focus after the first two goals, "the match drastically changed," he said.
Mexico got the ticket to the second round after a second place finish in the Group A where Uruguay came first.
