On the eve of the final of the Liga MX Femenil, one of the Club América players became a trend on social networks. The reason was the accusation that Roberto Medina, former coach of Tigres Femenil, made against her by pointing out that she had “betrayed” the team. However, Katty Martínez responded and claimed to have been the victim of threats.

Through her verified Twitter account, the forward of the team led by Ángel Villacampa expressed her dissatisfaction with the coach’s statements and announced that she will announce her version of her departure from Tigres. Although she did not mention further details, she expressed that they did not let her say goodbye to her companions.
“Now are we going to talk? Then talk. I have spent a year and a half keeping my truth silent about how things happened. They threatened me if I came to say what happened. They didn’t even let me say goodbye. Enough of them distorting everything,” she wrote via her verified Twitter account @kattyabad10.

Hours before the response of the Liga MX Femenil goalscorer, a fragment of an interview that Roberto Medina gave to the podcast known by the name Solo Tigres was released on social networks. In the space, the former coach of the Amazons assured that she contemplated Martínez in her project, but told her to negotiate behind the back of the board.

According to the testimony of the strategist, before the final that his team lost to Rayadas in the 2021 Apertura tournament, Martínez had to renew his relationship with the felines but could not agree on the new conditions. The situation continued and the star forward of that time could not remain in the team.
“Something happened that Antonio Sancho arrived two days before the final and told me ‘just to tell you that Katty doesn’t follow the next cycle.’ I told him ‘how, Toño? We have to recover my 17-goal player, how? Where she goes? ‘. No agreement was reached with her and it turns out that, apparently, there is a negotiation that she opened with America when she should not have done so, ”he declared.

As indicated by Medina, the board of directors became aware of the agreement when the men’s team tried to sign Sebastián Córdova. At that time, the América board of directors agreed to let their youth squad go, although they asked that Katty Martínez join the Coapa team.

At that time, the feline board assured that they could not accept the integration of Martínez in the negotiation because they were in the middle of building a new agreement. However, those of Coapa affirmed that they already had the approval of the forward.
“That’s where that part of the board’s anger came in. So they said ‘ah, he wants to go. That’s why he doesn’t renew us’ and they said it was fine and that the negotiation was continuing,” said Roberto Medina on the radio program.
In the next part of his speech, the coach of the Amazons tried to distance himself from the accusations against him. It is worth mentioning that, after finalizing the transfer of the forward, it was rumored that the coach of Tigres Femenil had had differences with Martínez, which would have led him to make the decision to separate her from the calls in the league.
