Mexico Coach Miguel Herrera Is Immortalised as a Wax Statue

Sean Swaby@seanswabyUK Staff WriterMarch 19, 2015


If anyone not named Zlatan Ibrahimovic deserves to be immortalised in wax form, it's Mexico coach Miguel Herrera. 

Everyone's favourite manager had that wax honour bestowed upon him when the Museo de Cera recreated the lovable spark plug as a wax statue. 

And it's naturally fantastic. 

"I am very happy and flattered—thank you very much for this deference that make me," Herrera said, per ESPN FC's Chris Wright. "Perhaps there are much more important people who might deserve such an honour, but it means a lot to me that people have requested (my waxwork) and I thank them all." 

Maybe there are more important people deserving, but here's a quick rundown of Herrera's worth in wax. 

He was completely crazy as a player.

Tom Brady wants to take a picture with him, not the other way around (per Herrera). 

He's anti-bullying.

He loves celebrating, and he loves his players.

He's in favour of selfies.
