Iván Mejía’s Criticism Sparks Debate on Yerry Mina’s Role in the Colombian National Team
In response to Iván Mejía’s critical remarks, renowned sports journalist Carlos Antonio Vélez has weighed in on the current state of affairs in the country, specifically addressing the situation surrounding Yerry Mina.
A Questionable Decision
Vélez expressed his concerns, stating, “Not only do we have individuals who are destroying our country in positions of power, but we also have a ‘genius’ leading our national football team. This ‘genius’ decides to replace an injured full-back with a central defender who has only played one minute in the last two months.”
Furthermore, Carlos Antonio emphasized that while Lorenzo has the authority to select the players he deems fit, he must also deliver results on the field. “I still believe that this coaching staff’s decision regarding Yerry Mina is the most sensible one throughout the entire campaign. They can call up anyone they want, but they must prove themselves by playing well. Unfortunately, they have failed to do so thus far. However, they will have to step up their game, as even this football administration has a limited lifespan. Time will tell!”
