PSV defender <L CODE="C01">Carlos Salcido</L> has pulled out of the Mexican squad. The Mexican feels exhausted and needs time to rest in order to be fit when PSV start the pre-season campaign. Hugo Sanchez, coach of the Mexican national team, has reluctantly decided not to call up Salcido for Mexico's Copa America squad.
Mexico will include Salcido in their starting line-up for Sunday's Gold Cup final against the United States. Salcido was to fly with the Mexican squad straightaway to Venezuela, which hosts the Copa América, but has asked coach Hugo Sanchez to leave him off Mexico's Copa America squad. Salcido cites fatigue after having made appearances for the Mexican national team the past two summers, while the defender has not been given an opportunity to take a rest yet, ever since he left Holland after a successful season with PSV in which he clinched the Dutch title. “It’s a mental problem. I can’t fully focus on the job and don’t feel top fit, so I have asked Hugo Sanchez to leave me out of the squad”, explained the defender. Ricardo Osorio and Pavel Pardo have also asked not to be called up for Mexico's Copa America squad. “I can understand their reasons for withdrawing from the squad. I would obviously have loved to have a full squad at my disposal, though”, was Sanchez’ response.
