“There is no doubt, his name is not in consideration for the change. Professor Rueda has the absolute support of the Executive Committee, as do the players and the coaching staff. This is a qualifying process that has been a bit unusual, difficult, but we continue to have faith and optimism that we are going to return to the World Cup ”said the manager.
The top executive of Colombian football and vice president of FIFA, added that no member of the Executive Committee of the Federation has requested the dismissal of Reinaldo. He explained that there is tranquility in the leadership because Colombia depends on itself.
“None, absolutely none. The Executive Committee has not even touched on the subject. For us that is not touched, the coaching staff … We are depending on ourselves, without depending on external results, we continue to depend on ourselves to search for that desired classification “, he pointed
Jesurún explained that the main problem to be solved is the lack of a goal, of which the coach and the strikers are aware, who score every weekend in their clubs but when they play for the national team they fail to do so.
