César Farías after leaving América: “I didn’t put together the team”

One day after being dismissed from América de Cali, César Farías spoke with Telepacífico Noticias about this decision of the Gómez family, owner of the club. The coach was fired due to poor results in the semester, the team was eliminated in the preliminary phase of the Copa Sudamericana and did not qualify for the semi-finals of the BetPlay League.

We really couldn’t meet the sporting objectives and they terminated us in an established manner that was already in the contract.. It’s part of football, I already knew that before coming here. My representative told me, ‘You are buying a problem, these owners have had 16 coaches, they have an average of a little less than a semester.’ It is an issue that one knew could happen if the expected results did not arrive (…) He took it with great nature, calmness, we lacked some results so that the story would be different,” Farías said in the interview with Jaime Dinas.

The Venezuelan coach, who leaves America after a little more than 3 months, He pointed out that he arrived at a difficult time and justified that he did not put together the squad or have the preparation as he would have liked. His arrival at the club was at the last minute after another dismissal, that of Lucas González in the month of January.

I didn’t put together the team, I didn’t bring a player, I didn’t do preseason, I came at a difficult time, I had to endure everything that was difficult. If it was after the Sudamericana it was understandable, but after we were able to go through that match again with Alianza, it was also difficult that we were left with 10, with a very rarefied atmosphere and a red that the truth left a bitter taste in me and we were able to lift it. From then on there was no more talk of any bad aspect,” Farías explained.

César Farías denies mistreatment of the team

Finally, The coach referred to the rumors of a bad relationship and the disrespect that he would have had with someone from the squad or from América. He denied that this was the case, but he showed that there were disagreements and that many people in the institution did not like that.

“No, with no one. It makes me laugh a little. In my career I have argued with rivals or with the press, but never with those on my team. Internally you may or may not have a different point of view. I don’t like falsehoods, I tell things as they are. I like a language of transparency and that doesn’t seem to please many people.”, he concluded.

The names that sound like DT del América

America is in search of a new coaching staff and there is already talk of several renowned coaches in Colombian soccer. From Hernán Torres, the man of promotion in 2016, to Luis Fernando Suárez, three-time World Cup winner and champion with Atlético Nacional in 1999.

They also sound Wilmer Cabrera, Alejandro Restrepo, Jaime de la Pava and the Uruguayan Jorge the ‘Moth’ da Silva. Marcela Gómez, president of América, hopes to close Farías’ replacement before June. She wants the chosen one to start the preseason from the first day to face the league and Copa Colombia in the second semester.
