This Wednesday, the technical director Jorge Luis Pinto and his work team completed his second day at the head of the professional team of Deportivo Cali, preparing what will be the classic or Cali derby, which will be played this Sunday at the Cali stadium in Palmaseca behind closed doors, due to the sanction imposed on the sugar team, after the events that occurred in the municipality of Tuluá two weeks ago.

Pinto came to work in Cali with new elements, but he will also have people who are or were linked to the Verdiblanca institution. Who are the Santander coach’s assistants at Deportivo Cali?

The technical assistant is former soccer player Sergio Darío ‘El Barranca’ Herrera Montt, who, after retiring as a high-performance athlete in 2016, began working as a technical assistant for César Torres until 2020 and then arrived at Deportivo Cali, where until the week last year he worked in the technical secretariat of the institution.

His physical trainer is Gilberto José Arenas Monsalve, a professional with 31 years of experience, he has a degree in physical education from the National Pedagogical University, a soccer specialist from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and a master’s degree in education. He has worked in Tolima, Quindío, Huila, Bucaramanga, Millonarios and in the Honduran and Arab Emirates teams. He has been working with Pinto since 2016.

The person in charge of preparing the goalkeepers is an old acquaintance of the Verdiblanca house, Eduardo Niño García, former goalkeeper of the Colombian National Team. He previously worked as a goalkeeper coach for Cali between 2009 and 2020, when he was called by Pinto to join his team for the United Arab Emirates National Team. Niño was also a coach for the Colombian National Team for 10 years until 2018.

The team doctor will continue to be Gustavo Fabian Portela Mejía, a professional sports doctor who has been in the Deportivo Cali first team for several years. He once again received the trust of Pinto and the Cali leadership to continue carrying out his duties.

Finally, also in the last few hours, the general manager, Mauricio Monroy, who is a lawyer by profession, also studied at the Real Madrid school, has provided advice to the same club in Spain and has experience in sports law, was presented.
