• Union's Marco Fabian: No talk yet with Mexico boss Gerardo Martino

  • 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

    in Germany.

    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).
