A dream come true for him. Juan Reynoso will be in charge of the technical management of Cruz Azul, confirmed the Mexican club this Saturday through a statement in which he looks to the future with optimism from the hand of the national technician and recalls his past as a player.
“Cruz Azul welcomes Juan Reynoso as the new technical director”, highlighted the Aztec entity to announce the hiring of the Peruvian strata, who comes from a good campaign with Puebla.
“In addition to being a reference for the league champion team in the winter of 1997, you were also one of the highest quality and most beloved players in our institution,” Cruz Azul added in his official reception to Reynoso.
The ex-defender’s mission will be to try to end the curse of Cruz Azul, who chains 23 years without finished champion in Mexico and has lost six finals since 1997.
“We are convinced that, having had great experiences in your country and in Mexican football, you return home at a very important time in your career. You know what it means to proudly carry our T-shirt, the demand and the commitment we have to give everything for our great reputation,” the ‘Cementeros’ directive valued.
“We hope that, with a lot of work and discipline, accompanied by this large group of players and the support of the great celestial family, we will seek at all times the triumphs and the long-awaited championship,” Cruz Azul said.
After leaving Puebla in early December after taking him back to the leagues of the LIGA MX, Juan Reynoso will again lead Yoshimar Yotún, whom he had at Sporting Cristal during the 2011 season; this time in the MX League as a brand new Blue Cross coach.
Cruz Azul is beaten after losing in the concachampions quarter-finals to Los Angeles FC, a new pitcher of cold water after his painful departure in the semi-finals of the 2020 Mexican Apertura Tournament against Pumas (wasting a 4-0 lead achieved in the first leg), which led to the departure of Uruguayan coach Robert Dante Siboldi.
