Deportivo Cali confirmed this Saturday, October 1 to George Louis Pinto as the new technical director of the professional team, replacing Mayer Candelo.
Pinto will take on this new challenge in his coaching career with the company of Sergio Herrera, who will be his technical assistant. He will also have Gilberto Arenas as physical trainer and Eduardo Niño as goalkeeper trainer.
“Professor Jorge Luis Pinto Afanador has been appointed as the new technical director of our professional team,” reported Deportivo Cali.
The main challenge for the Santander coach will be to get the bad moment out of Deportivo Cali, which after the title achieved in 2021 has not had a good performance throughout the 2022 season.
Currently, the ‘sugar’ complex is the last of the BetPlay League with eight points after a single win, five draws and eight losses in 14 games.
This will be the second time that the strategist is in charge of the “green and white” institution, taking into account that he was the coach in the 1990-1991 season, when he directed 49 commitments.
