The signals that reach Juan Carlos Osorio from Tulio Gómez, the largest shareholder of América de Cali, are clear. The support for the technical director is superficial, since not enough has been done to hire the players requested by the Risaraldense. Thus, its continuity is in doubt.
Of the list of reinforcements that Osorio requested for America 2022, no operation was closed. The players who have arrived do not have the approval of the coach, and before starting the BetPlay I-2022 League, the DT is considering the possibility of taking a step aside.
The version, which was already circulating in Cali in the last hours, was confirmed by the journalist Francisco ‘Pacho’ Vélez in ESPN. “At this time, the continuity of Juan Carlos Osorio in America is not clear,” he said.
“The technician is debating the following: what they bring him (reinforcements) is not what he wants; what he wants, he could not. And he has this dilemma: ‘or I keep what they are bringing me, because I want to succeed in America; or I don’t risk it, because I have many things against it, and I’d better take a step to the side, ‘”Velez reported.
The decision will be made by Juan Carlos Osorio himself. His permanence is increasingly complicated, since since the end of 2021 the fans have not made his stay in the capital of Valle del Cauca easy; only the sportsmanship, and the ambition to regain his prestige in Colombian soccer, would be the only motivation to remain in the scarlet club.
