Beyond the information being handled in the city of Cali regarding the dismissal of Jaime De la Pava as Technical Director of the Valle del Cauca team, it has not yet been confirmed, after the team’s poor performance in the second half of the BetPlay League (including home runs ), which did not help him alleviate his fight for relegation by 2024, it is said that the first candidate already exists to replace the current strategist of the ‘sugar growers’.

According to the first indications, it is said that the next coach of Cali is one who has become a champion in Colombian professional soccer, and who has recently had experience in Ecuadorian soccer.

According to Caracol Radio’s El Vbar, Deportivo Cali would have Santiago ‘Sachi’ Escobar on the radar to be the man in charge of replacing Jaime De la Pava for the following 2024.

However, initially on the DSports program, De Fútbol se Habla Así, the Colombian-Argentine panelist, Adrián Magnoli, stated that this news was totally ‘smoke’ and that no one had contacted Escobar on behalf of Deportivo Cali.

Santiago Escobar has been present in Colombian football as Technical Director in teams such as Atlético Nacional (was champion), Deportivo Pasto (also champion), Once Caldas, Junior, Medellín and Equidad.

Currently, the 59-year-old Antioquian is directing in Ecuadorian soccer, specifically in Aucas, where he arrived in 2023 and has been in 16 games, where he obtained 6 wins, 7 draws, and 3 losses during the year. Thus having a balance of 52% performance.
