Mexico coach Leonardo Cuellar says he will leave his job at some point, but he would not give any exact time frame. Cuellar also identified former Mexico player Monica Vergara as a possible successor.

“I’ve done with love, with professionalism, with great interest, but I understand that if I have to at some point be on the podium with my banner cheering, so I will and I will be fan It’s number one team,” Cuellar said.

Cuellar has been in charge of Mexico’s women’s national team since 1998. He came under fire from forward Charlyn Corral after Mexico’s group-stage exit at the 2015 World Cup. Mexico is yet to win a game at the Women’s World Cup in nine attempts, all under Cuellar.

“I believe that Cuellar has done a lot for the program, but we need new ideas,” Corral said after the team’s exit from the World Cup. “I do not do for me, it is for Mexico and the growth of women’s football. We need more competition, more players to advance.”
