The Mexico coach wishes he could communicate with his players during matches but accepted the federation's decision not to appeal his ban.

"As far as how I feel during the games, needless to say it’s a very difficult situation," Osorio said Saturday in a news conference. "I can’t deny the fact that I enjoy very much being by the sideline, next to the players, and the one thing specifically that is very difficult to deal with is the fact that when something happens on the field and I try to make aware of that situation it takes too long and it’s gone, it’s past and it’s basically two or three new plays have happened after that.

"It’s very difficult to correct the points that are relevant to the specific situation. So I would say that if there is one word to describe that, it’s frustration."

The Mexico federation announced Friday it will not appeal the suspension, which will see Osorio miss the entire Gold Cup. The coach said he gave the federation directors his opinion on whether or not to appeal and respects their decision. He is not allowed on the touchline during the ban but is able to conduct training sessions and is enjoying working with the alternative side he has called for this tournament.

"With the group, I’m very happy, very optimistic," the coach said. "One of the things I enjoy most overall is working with this new generation of players, players who have been with us in previous squads and the new ones. It’s extrodinary to be with them, to work with them on the training field about our styles of play, our principles, their role, learning about them and sharing our knowledge.

"I continue thinking we have a very good group of talented young players who are the future of Mexican soccer."
