“My job is to support, just like they did with me”, that’s how clear the Honduran striker was Albert Ellis in a wide talk through Twitter Space with the journalist Edward Solano in reference to Francis Martinez, footballer of the Honduran Major League who enjoyed being summoned to a microcycle of the “H” under the command of Diego Vázquez, being an unprecedented event.
This decision of the coach generated diverse opinions from those who believe that, “it is not to invent or experiment, but to work and achieve results”, in the words of Brian Beckeles and others commenting: “Don’t envy, enjoy the success of others; the Honduran National Team is for everyone”, reinforced Marvin Chávez. read here

However, this time it was the turn of the “Panterita”, who was forceful in respecting the decision of the coaching staff and that everyone’s job is to support.
“I am an active soccer player for the national team, I am eligible for the national team and I cannot speak of others. As a player all I have to do is support my teammates no matter who they are. It doesn’t matter who I call, second, third… my job is to support, just like they did with me.”
And he added: “It is not my job to talk about who goes to the national team or not, I am not the one to talk. Everyone’s job is to support whoever comes, no matter where.”
In the middle of the transmission, the legionnaire Luis Palma was connected, who from Greece pointed out that, “it is sad to see bad comments from people towards a boy who has only worked to have an opportunity that has come to him at this time.”
CRITIQUE OF THE SPORTS PRESS
The certain thing is that for the footballer of the Girondins of FranceFrancis theme should not be on the front page, but rather the problems that Honduran soccer afflicts, such as the lack of fields, the reserve project and better conditions for the players.
“What disappoints me the most is that there are many journalists talking about this, -and you think that is the most important thing knowing how soccer is in Honduras- questioned Elis, when they should be talking about the fact that the Federation does not have fields, that the teams do not have good reserves, that the players go on vacation to the United States to play bureaucratic, now it seems normal – but is it?
“They don’t talk about solutions, just the things above and they do this to generate controversy, – but will it add something to Honduran soccer? Why don’t they talk about what needs to be done and not only that, but also press for the Federation and the Honduran teams to do a better job”, he added.
Given this, he recalled that in his experience he has never had the need to go to the United States to play games.
-Have you seen players from Mexico, Canada, the United States or Costa Rica playing bureaucratic in America? – he asked the journalist in an angry tone Edward Solana.
“I saw that a president said that it was good that the players went to search and then they want to ask for World Cups. It bothers me that sports journalists, instead of talking about what they have to talk about, generate controversy”, closed the Honduran player in the Second Division of France.
