Amaranth’s pleasant headache

He is not tormented by the decision to come. It is a ‘problem’ that gives him peace of mind, it is a ‘mess’ that all the coaches want to have. After Carmelo Valencia’s scoring exhibition against Independiente del Valle, Luis Amaranto Perea, Junior’s helmsman, will face, with a view to the duel against Envigado (Saturday 6:05 pm, at Parque Estadio Sur), a pleasant dilemma: return the starter to Miguel Ángel Borja, the stellar hiring and top scorer of the team this year with seven annotations (five in the League, one in the Super League and one in the Copa Libertadores) or keep ‘Tutunendo’, the man who conquered a triplet (the first by a footballer in red-and-white history) and made Independiente del Valle a former undefeated.

“There is no one like ‘Tutu'”, sing and publish many excited fans with the three goals of the Chocoano in the 4-1 victory against Independiente del Valle, but Borja has also made merits on the court to return to the eleventh starting player. It is not easy to tell the team’s gunner to stay on the bench without being suspended or injured.. Nor is it easy to do the same with the one who has just inflated the network three times in the Libertadores. And when will Teófilo Gutiérrez return? … Uffff … That is the question.

“They are difficult problems, but good ones. You always want the players to have the highest level, that your decisions basically go through minimal issues of the rival. Luckily Carmelo has done well and in some way helps so that internal competition is generated. In general terms, we have a very good team, very good players. There are a lot of games. It seems to me that in the end everyone is going to play ”, replied Luis Amaranto Perea, in the virtual press conference after the game between Junior and Independiente del Valle, when THE HERALD posed the dilemma.

The Solomonic decision you have at hand is to accommodate both of them, with which he must sacrifice Sherman Cárdenas (with what clarity and creation would be lost) or to one of its extremes. This last option seems unlikely, at the moment, for the style of play that Junior has assumed with periods of high blood pressure and fast transitions from defense to attack by exploiting the speed and skill of the men from the sides like Freddy Hinestroza, Luis ‘Cariaco’ González and Edwuin Cetré.

The ‘Zurdo’ López underwent a catheterization and it is studied if they should operate

The former Junior Technician Miguel Ángel López was hospitalized last Monday morning at the Clínica del Caribe, after feeling discomfort and abnormal pressure.

The news was known through social networks, after one of his pupils in the rojiblanco team, former striker Martín Arzuaga, reported his health status through Twitter.

“Let us put in our prayers Professor Miguel Ángel López, who suffered an acute myocardial infarction,” wrote the ‘Toro’.

Until the closing of this edition, no official medical report was known about the state of health of the ‘Zurdo’.

The Argentine, champion with the Sharks in 2004, has been based in Barranquilla for several years.

Francisco Arias, who works as López’s assistant, assures that the 78-year-old veteran helmsman “is stable, calm and in good spirits”, waiting for what the doctors decide.

“Still under observation. They’ve already had a catheterization that resulted in a clogged artery. The possibility of open heart surgery or another type of intervention is being studied, ”Arias told EL HERALDO.

The former technician, according to Arias, remains in constant communication with those closest to him. His relatives in Argentina have already been informed and are aware of his health, like many of Junior’s fans who have a feeling of admiration and gratitude for the star he helped embroider on the shield in 2004.

In dialogue with EL HERALDO, a few months ago, ‘El Zurdo’ had sent a message of affection and gratitude to the rojiblanca fans, in the midst of confinement due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I want to thank you for the affection that I always receive. I miss you. Thank you for making my days happy, ”said the historic Argentine coach at the time.

Miguel Ángel López was the coach of Junior’s fifth star in the second half of 2004, in that remembered final against Atlético Nacional, where the rojiblancos won 3-0 in the first leg, in Barranquilla, and then fell 5-2 in Medellín , saving himself in the last minutes with the remembered goal of Argentine defender Walter Ribonetto. The Sharks prevailed on penalties 5-4.

He directed the Barranquilla team on seven occasions. Without a doubt, he is a character that is 100% linked to junior history.

‘El Zurdo’ made his debut as a professional footballer at the University of Córdoba in 1962 and retired in 1975 at Atlético Nacional, a club where he made his debut as a coach a year later.

During his long coaching career, he has twice managed América de México, with whom he won two league titles in 1985 and a Concacaf Champions League in 1992.

He was also in the Independiente de Avellaneda, with which he raised the title of the South American Super Cup in 1995, and also in the Argentine Boca Juniors, Rosario Central, Ferro Carril Oeste and Arsenal.

He also went through the Mexican Chivas de Guadalajara, Santos Laguna, Toluca, León, Atlético Celaya and Puebla, as well as Al-Ahli from Saudi Arabia and Badajoz from Spain.
