My son fell to the ground, she stared at her companion and told her ‘calm down, nothing’s wrong’ and that’s itHe closed his eyes, they took him to the Western Clinic and he arrived without vital signs”.

The club’s largest shareholder spoke on ESPN F90 about the decision, where he did not spare his differences with Osorio, and referred to the future of América de Cali.

“We do not think that with Osorio was going to do so badly for us in the results. Osorio’s coaching staff was the most expensive in Colombian soccer. Things did not happen. When we hired Osorio, we gave him carte blanche, he chose the reinforcements and unfortunately they did not measure up to us. Perhaps we did not analyze well that the rotation that Osorio likes does not serve us so much. We didn’t realize either, that it was our fault, that Osorio plays attacking, I think that a team should be balanced. Our defense is not bad, the defensive scheme is bad”.

In this dialogue with the television medium, Thulium He emphasized a criticism that he had made days ago in which he pointed out that the payroll for this 2022 was not only one of the most expensive, but also one of the most talented in the colombian football:

“Our roster isn’t the best in the tournament, but it’s not among the worst either. We haven’t been able to have everything because sometimes they get injured, we usually have 6-8 players in the medical department.. There are teams that do not have a better payroll than us and are above us. America has to always be in the finals, it is not an obligation to be champion every year but to be in the fight”.
