MONTERREY, Mexico -- Mexico's interim head coach Ricardo Ferretti dispelled suggestions that players haven't been called up to El Tri's squad for any reason other than the coach wanting to bring along a younger generation of players.

"Whoever it is, even if they aren't in Mexican football, they should know it, they have to soak in everything there is about Mexican football," Fabian said.

Whether Fabian starts or not against Los Ticos will be Ferretti's decision, but the coach said that if Mexico's seven Europe-based players do play in Monterrey then they would be free to leave ahead of El Tri's game next Tuesday against Chile.

"I've taken the decision to not call them, it's my right, I take responsibility for the list, but in the future it doesn't mean that they won't be here," Ferretti said in a news conference on the eve of El Tri's game on Thursday against Costa Rica.

As the search for the new permanent coach of the national team continues, and all signs point to a foreign manager being named, Ferretti hinted that perhaps the quality of head coach in the Mexican game isn't as good as it once was.

ESPN's Herculez Gomez reported that players were left out in the cold for speaking out about the lack of a collective bargaining agreement, while a Univision report suggested there was a divide between the Mexican federation (FMF) and players such as Javier Hernandez, Miguel Layun, Andres Guardado and Hector Moreno, none of whom are in the current squad.

"These players are demanding to be here and it'll be difficult for the incoming coach not to give them a chance," Ferretti said.
