He was barely made official as the new coach of the Peruvian team, Juan Maximo Reynoso He began to work and observe various players to be able to assemble his first call. In that sense, he visited different stadiums to see possible players and in interviews he mentioned that he would give the opportunity to players who were ‘erased’ in the process of Ricardo Gareca.
The first message when the diver assumed the white-red was that those who are in a great moment in their teams would be summoned. In this sense, several of those who stopped being called by the ‘Tigre’, at the time and today, they are doing a great job. In a recent interview with Líbero, he shed light on two players and in Gol Perú he spoke about another.
Mainly, there were three players who were constantly called up to the Peruvian national team and who later ceased to be. Next, we tell you why they were not there anymore, although Reynoso assured that they would be in his call:
The Atlas defender, at the time, was a starter in the scheme of the Argentine strategist; however, two vital errors, which cost us the draw against Uruguay and the defeat against Brazil, caused him to be absent from the ‘everyone’s team’.
John Reynosothrough a talk for Gol Peru, mentioned that it is in his plans: “Anderson Santamaría is one of the best defenders in Liga MX. He is a player who gives you variants. He can play you in a line of four or three. The last time we spoke it was clear to me that he wants revenge. It comes from being a two-time champion in Mexican soccer.”
The situation of the Melgar goalkeeper was due to poor performance and the good time Angelo Campos was having in Alianza Lima. Currently, he is to fight for the title against Pedro Gallese.
“What happened to Carlos (Cáceda) was monumental. From a one-on-one that saves to penalties, but in front of him there is a team that knows what they are playing and that is not scared. In the selection it is necessary to summon the best. And today his moment is the best. We have to try to be consistent and that the Bicolor give a showcase to these players with a good present”, limited the ‘Cabezón’ for Libero.
The ‘for money’ He is the striker who, in terms of clubs, has always closed mouths, but he has not done well with the Bicolor. Despite this, Gareca gave him his backing, but this was broken when the MLS player did not want to come on vacation to train with “everyone’s team” for the matches against Colombia and Ecuador. After this, the ‘Tiger’ deleted it and did not call it any more.
“If you allow it, sure. He is a benchmark in Mexico and the MLS, but you have to give him peace of mind. That he feels that the technical command and his teammates respect him. Everyone speaks well of him to me and they can’t explain why people are unfair to him. I know he wants a new opportunity ”, explained Reynoso, who did not rule out that the attacker pairs with Lapadula. As is known, the ‘Pigheaded’ He was the one who made him debut with Universitario and there is a good bond.
When will the ‘Cabezón’ debut with the national team?
The Bicolor will face some friendly matches on FIFA date. One of the rivals already confirmed is Mexico. The meeting will take place on September 24 on North American soil. This will be Juan Reynoso’s debut as technical director of the Peruvian national team.
