Little by little, the Mexican Football League (LBM) takes shape. A few months after the start of the tournament, there are already seven confirmed teams to inaugurate the event and the head of the organization has already started work.

The latter is the former footballer Carlos Salcido, who took office as president of the LBM. However, this commitment to the organizers is different, since it is the first experience of the Mexican as a manager, after retiring from the fields in November 2019.

Javier González Levy, broadcast director of the National Association of Mexican Football (ANBM), he told Infobae Mexico how the approaches with the three-time World Cup started with the Mexican team. "He had an immense fan to continue his development, inside and outside of football," he explained.

He explained that the London 2012 Olympic medalist has a good relationship with Víctor Montiel and Rafael Fonseca, president and vice president of the ANBM respectively. "At the beginning he was invited as a sponsor, to come and meet, to see what was basically being done", he pointed.

With the passage of time, Salcido began to attract attention to the project and gave some details of what he could be as a manager. “We know that he is a leader, that he is a very committed person. We realized that it is capable of taking it to the desktop. A leadership that shows in the different areas of life "González Levy assured.

The spokesperson noted that Carlos knows how to put “firm hand” with the presidents and representatives of the teams, since he is the one who deals directly with the issue of records. “It was a relatively short process, in which it evolved until it became formal. 'Carlos, why don't you come and help us as president of the league with this capacity that you have demonstrated? In this short time it has made a revolution ”he recognized.

“That was more or less the process. It was not planned as such and we believe it was an extraordinary decision ”

In turn, the director of dissemination commented on how he started the ANBM and LBM project. “This started as a more or less informal initiative, coffee talks, between Rafa Fonseca and Víctor Montiel. They thought that there was a lot of talent that was left on the road and concluded that it would be great a league that was an option for them, "he said.

After plotting the idea, the two heads had to find people to support their project. However, they did not have the support at first. "Many said no, but little by little they began to find an answer. In the end, there were seven people who trusted the project and that is how it started in the first quarter of 2019, ”he recalled.

He indicated that the Mexican Football League does not seek to compete with the MX League. "We are an alternative to be able to serve not only players, but all those people or institutions that have not had access for whatever reason to the current structure of professional football. We are talking about coaches, referees, the media, investors and sponsors, "he explained.

“We never did it thinking about competing. We do not want to bring your sponsors or players, far from it. Anyone who does not have that option is welcome here, "he reiterated.

Gonzalez Levy pointed out that it is "inevitable" that they see them as a competition for the latest events for the decisions regarding the lower divisions. However, he assured: "We keep saying that we are not competition".
