5 Reasons Miguel Herrera is My Favorite Coach

Mexico Soccer Coach Miguel Herrera has done the impossible: he took a losing, dysfunctional Mexico team on the eve of not qualifying for the World Cup and transforming it into one of the best stories of this tournament. Despite what becomes of Mexico’s fate in the tournament (and my silly reasons below), he will be my favorite Coach of this World Cup.

So here are my 5 reasons why he’s my favorite coach:

5. Because He Once Sported This Mullet

Herrera played for Mexico in the early 90’s – even making it to the Copa América final in 1993, when Mexico lost to Argentina. Even though many of us had similar haircut’s, it doesn’t make it less funny.

4. Because His Angry Face is his Happy Face

His facial expressions are so expressive, taking a still image mid-expression makes it almost impossible to tell!

3. His Goal Celebrations are Epic

Being excited is one thing – but watch how many players rush over to celebrate with him!

2. How many other Coach’s heads do you see in the stands?

Before Herrera took over, Mexico was certain to not qualify for the World Cup. The fans celebrate him for what he has done for the country.

1. Because this makes me happy EVERY time I watch it:
