It seems that not even “San Memo” is saved from the disaster Salernitana in Serie A this season, because the coach of the team, Filippo Inzaghi, made a critical comment to Guillermo Ochoa after the latest club’s defeat against Genoa, where the Mexican Johan Vásquez also played.
Those from Salerno fell 1-2 at home on Matchday 21 and are completely at the bottom of the championship, seeing their chances of permanence further compromised. It seems that Inzaghi, who is a historic scorer for AC Milan and Juventus, was not very satisfied with Memo Ochoa in the game and asked that it was not a factor.

What did Filippo Inzaghi say about Memo Ochoa? restraint
With a couple of weeks only under the Salernitana goal, after suffering an injury with the Mexican National Team last November, Ochoa had a bad start with a Napoli goal last week and made a mistake against Genoa in the first of many. These sins seem to test the patience of the helmsman.
“Ochoa doesn’t have any stops. Usually, a goalie can make two to three saves and this time there were none. We go for another home game and we need to recover quickly. If we cannot win, at least add that it is urgent,” declared Pippo Inzaghi.

Will Memo Ochoa continue as Salernitana’s starter?
Two wins in 21 games, plus six draws, is the bad balance of Salernitana in the 2023-2024 Season. Although Memo Ochoa continues to be loved by the fans, as shown by the songs and even the nicknames they have been baptized with, it seems that Inzaghi has lost faith in the Mexican, who is aiming to reach his sixth World Cup in 2026.
On the next date, Salernitana will host Roma, who recently announced the departure of José Mourinho as helmsman. The Mexican goalkeeper’s club has only 12 points and is six away from the safety zone, while La Loba is eighth with 32 points, but only two away from qualifying for the European competition.
