The current appearance of Gustavo Quinteros’ Colo Colo has several fans and former football players not so convinced about the project. The failure of the Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana satisfied their patience. Added to this is the poor season in the 2023 National Championship.
For this reason, it is not at all unreasonable that some Cacique leaders are calling for the Argentine-nationalized Bolivian coach to leave. One of them was Leonel Herrera, who explained his point of view in conversation with Redgol.
What did Leonel Herrera say about Colo Colo?
“The most surprising thing is the Cobresal campaign. It’s not a coincidence. I’ve seen him play many times and he has good players. The Cacique will have to make every effort to get closer in the overall standings. But it will be difficult no matter how much we have the approval of the public and how much more,” he explained.
He added: “It’s the last opportunity to fight for the title.” If you lose or draw you have to think about something else, not the title. And definitely. The Chile Cup is not the same as a championship. But we shouldn’t devalue Cobresal.”
Is Gustavo Quinteros leaving?
Here the history of the caciques was much more difficult. “Quinteros let things slip a while ago. Unfortunately every coach has his cycle, sometimes long or short, but I think the Colo Colo board should think about technical reinforcement for next year. I think a change of hands is practical,” he told Redgol.
When does Colo Colo play Cobresal?
The key match between Cacique and Mineros will take place on September 23 at the Monumental Stadium. The deadline is at 5:30 p.m. for date 24 of the 2023 National Championship. Colo Colo just needs to win to stay alive.
