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.

Junior closes negotiation with Red Bull Bragantino for César Haydar

And it is a fact. After several weeks of proposals and counterproposals, calculator, fine print, clauses and tug of war, the negotiation between Junior and Red Bull Bragantino was finally closed for the federative and economic rights of central defender César Haydar.

EL HERALDO learned that the Brazilian team will finally pay the Sharks $ 2,800,000 for the transfer of 70% of the rights of the 19-year-old defender. The shark group reserves the remaining 30% to participate in future negotiations.

The player has been training outside the group with Michael Rangel, who is looking for a team abroad to be transferred.

Red Bull Bragantino, Brazil’s first division team, which is based in the city of Braganca Paulista, in the State of Sao Paulo, must pay 50% of the amount next week to seal the agreement and receive Haydar in the country of samba to take medical exams.

Valle del Cauca’s José Velasco, the defender’s representative, said that Bragantino’s interest in Haydar has been going back to last year, when he debuted in the first division at the hands of Luis Fernando Suárez.

In his first games as a rojiblanco, Haydar showed his technical wealth and character to play without being noticed that he was a rookie.

The coach Julio Comesaña, who at the time told the defender that he had to improve several issues of his behavior (something that Haydar later admitted and said had served him a lot), has also given him a chance in the starter and Suán’s boy ( Atlántico) has not disappointed.

In the Colombia U-18 team he also stood out and was champion in a friendly homer in Japan. It will surely be in the plans of coach Arturo Reyes for the U-20 team that will play the South American Tournament, next year in Colombian territory (from February 2 to 27).

Bragantino, which since 2019 belongs to Red Bull GmbH, an Austrian company that markets the energy drink of the same name, has been incorporating young players with talent and projection.

At the beginning of this year they hired until 2024 the Ecuadorian Leo Realpe, another 19-year-old defender who had shown his quality in Independiente del Valle, current champion of the Copa Sudamericana.
