According to various reports from Mexican media, former Atlanta United manager Gerardo “Tata” Martino will be officially unveiled this Monday as the new Mexico National Team coach.

Martino arrived to Mexico City on Saturday and will be presented in front of media at the Mexico National Team headquarters (CAR).

It is expected Martino will sign a four-year contract with the team, with an option to extend his contract pending good results.

Joining Martino will be his assistants Sergio Giovagnoli and Jorge Theiller, as well as physio Rodolfo Paladini.

Fans will be able to catch their first glimpse of Martino with the Mexico National Team in March, when El Tri is set to play a pair of friendlies against Chile and Paraguay. Martino previously coached Paraguay from 2007 to 2011 and led La Albirroja all the way to the Quarterfinals of the 2010 World Cup. Martino later went on to coach boyhood club Newell’s Old Boys, Barcelona, Argentina, and Atlanta United.
