Philadelphia Union midfielder Marco Fabian says he has not
yet spoken with Mexico boss Gerardo "Tata" Martino but
affirmed his commitment to El Tri should he be called up.
"I've spoken with some directors, like [Gerardo] Torrado. But
everything's happened so fast, both with [Martino's] arrival [as
Mexico manager] and my arrival [in MLS]. So I haven't had the
time to speak with him yet," Fabian said in an interview on
ESPN Deportes program Jorge Ramos Y Su Banda.
The 29-year-old Fabian had spent almost four seasons with
Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt, but has made just two
league and cup appearances this past season. He has also
played for Liga MX sides Chivas and Cruz Azul before his stint
He was on Mexico's roster for both the 2014 and 2018 World
Cups, and was part of the side that claimed the gold medal at
the 2012 Olympics Games.
"I've always said that I'm a player who's always close to the
national team and every day it'll be important to me until the
day I retire," Fabian said, adding that he hopes to connect with
Martino when "things get settled."
Martino has said he isn't overly concerned of players leaving
European sides to play in MLS and Liga MX. The ex-Atlanta
United boss will make his managerial debut for Mexico in a
friendly against Chile on March 22.
Other prominent Mexico players to return from Europe this
past transfer window were Carlos Salcedo (Eintracht Frankfurt
to Tigres) and Miguel Layun (Villarreal to Monterrey).
