Miguel Herrera has built a reputation for controversial statements, and the new Tigres manager seems to have no plans to change that approach.

Florian Thauvin will be joining the Liga MX side once his contract at Marseille expires next month.

When asked about what the winger will bring to Los Auriazules, ‘El Piojo’ steered the conversation towards another Frenchman he had coached during his time at América.

Jérémy Ménez joined Las Águilas in January 2018, but his time in Mexico City was blighted by an ACL injury and a tempestuous relationship with Herrera.

“I started to shoot every game. They bring a real player, by name he is not well known,” Herrera told the Multimedios television station.

“The truth is, Jérémy came with good credentials, but he runs and gets in fights. Jérémy was an idiot.”

Tell us what you really think, Miguel.

We’re looking forward to the Apertura already!
