Peter Vermes backs Alan Pulido after missing WC qualifiers


Sporting Kansas City head coach Peter Vermes backed forward Alan Pulido after he missed out on the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, adding that his omission from Mexico’s roster benefits the Major League Soccer club. 

Mexico’s recent decision to leave out Pulido comes as a surprise after the Sporting Kansas player featured for his country during both Concacaf tournaments this summer. 

Manager Tata Martino chose to reinforce the other aspects of the roster, only calling up Jonathan dos Santos and Rodolfo Pizarro from the American league. 

“I think the world of him, I think that he’s a fantastic player and he does very well for our team,” Vermes said of their 30-year-old Designated Player. 

“But I also just think just for him as a player, this consistency of training, games, all of that, is going to be good for him. And I also think it’s not only going to be good for us, but it’s also good for Mexico in the long run as well because he’ll be in good form.”
