Former Barcelona star, Andrés Iniesta spoke with ESPN about the arrival of Gerardo 'Tata' Martino as the new coach of the Mexican National Team.

The Spanish midfielder thinks that with 'Tata' Martino in charge, the Mexican squad could become a really difficult team to defeat, saying that 'El Tri' made a good decision naming the Argentine strategist as their coach.

Iniesta, who currently plays with Japan's Vissel Kobe, is confident that the Mexican team will increase their lever under the orders of 'Tata' Martino.

"I want to see a Mexican team that will be complicated to beat, besides Mexica have always had very good technical players".

On the other hand, Iniesta talked about his experience with Gerardo Martino who coached the Blaugranas in the 2013-14 season. He has a fond memory of his time with him despite the fact that the Argentine's work didn't turn out as expected.

"I have very good memories beyond the fact that the season could have been better or worse. I think he is a great coach, he won the MLS Cup with Atlanta United last season."
