Santiago Ormeño still in a state of grace. The Puebla FC forward -which is managed by Juan Reynoso– He was present again on the scoreboard, this time with a violent header, in the Liga MX, where he has three goals in the last three games. An impressive streak for a footballer who barely debuted in a professional league last year and is now attracting all the media attention from Peru and Mexico. The reason? Well, the growing expectation that positions him as a reasonable option in the Peruvian team of Ricardo Gareca, as a spare part to Paolo Guerrero.
The tall attacker Santiago Ormeño He recently confessed, in an interview to the Mexican television channel TUDN, that he is very excited to be able to defend a national team, this after being asked if he knows of the possibility of being able to play for the peruvian team. The tall forward has a Peruvian DNI and can be summoned. It is also for Mexico. By biotype, by age and by performance (and also because in Peru there are no great options in attack), the scorer of the Puebla FC should be tracked already by Ricardo Gareca.
Why would Reynoso be the key factor?
Santiago Ormeño is directed by another Peruvian, Juan Reynoso. The coach has a very good relationship with the Peruvian Football Federation (FPF), to be more precise, with Ricardo Gareca and the coaching staff of the Peruvian team. This affinity would allow the ‘Tigre’ to be quite informed and to know more and better about the performance and expectations of the attacker already nicknamed by Peruvian fans as “the Peruvian friend.”
So with Juan Reynoso as a link and key factor, the monitoring options fairly close to Santiago Ormeño they are increased and also become more viable from the Peruvian team. It is true, three goals in three games could warn of a rush to qualify it as a possible variant to Paolo Guerrero, but they are enough to put it in the focus of attention of the FPF.
Juan Carlos Oblitas, sports director of the Peruvian team, admitted a few days ago that Santiago Ormeño that “surely Ricardo Gareca he is following him ”. The former technician of the peruvian team He also knows about the close relationship between the “Tigre” and Juan Reynoso and therefore, it understands that it can be the most direct channel to know everything that is necessary or at least to consult any concern about the attacker.
A few weeks ago, in an interview, Juan Reynoso revealed the constant communication he has with Ricardo Gareca: “In the medium term I see myself as technical director of the Peruvian Selection. In some chat with Ricardo GarecaHe told me that I could be the technical director of the team. There is good chemistry between the two, ”said the Puebla FC coach.
Are there other options besides Santiago Ormeño?
Why keep thinking about Gianluca Lapadula or wait for Beto Da Silva to break it in Alianza Lima. Currently, the only attacker with a regular performance was Aldair Rodríguez, with Binacional. However, the suspension of League 1 due to coronavirus left him in check and it is still unknown whether his performance can continue to be sustainable. After all, if the Playoffs start next October, Ricardo Gareca You should think about those who have the best time for the peruvian team. And in that equation, Santiago Ormeño can be a variable to take into account.
Why is there talk of a plan for Santiago Ormeño?
A few days ago, Mexican media highlighted an alleged Peruvian “plan” to take the Mexican-Peruvian forward Santiago Ormeño to the Peruvian team. At that time he barely had two goals in two games with him Puebla FC in Liga MX and the Peruvian press had already exploded its prominence and gave it as a possible variant in the white and red.
It was the Medio Tiempo portal that “warned” of this Peruvian campaign to take over the services of the attacker led by Juan Reynoso. Precisely, they highlighted that the coach was also of Peruvian nationality, a link that could do so more Ricardo Gareca.
