Gold Cup winners Mexico axe Miguel Herrera after he allegedly punched a journalistby Jack Kitson / 29 July 2015, 09:51Tweet
Mexico have sacked manager Miguel Herrera just two days after winning the Gold Cup. The decision comes after Herrera allegedly punched a journalist, meaning the country is now on the hunt for their seventh head coach in just five years.
The alleged incident took place at Philadelphia airport, giving the Mexican FA little choice but to fire the 47-year-old. If the reports are true it marks a shocking end to the colourful gaffers' eventful tenure in charge of Eli Tri.
Herrera barely had time to celebrate winning his country a record seventh Gold Cup trophy, before a moment of madness not only ruptured his reputation, but lost him his job.
Mexico are next in action in September when they take on Trinidad & Tobago and Argentina in a brace of friendlies, before a crunch clash against rivals the United States in October, which sees the duo fight it out for a place in the Confederations Cup.
We don't have a video yet of the incident but here's a Mexican volcano erupting
