After confirmation by the Board of Directors, headed by the President of Unión Magdalena, Alberto Marío Garzón, and its manager Orlando Zuñiga Cotes, that coach Jorge Luis Pinto will assume the technical direction of the Samario team for the second semester of the promotion tournament , the banana growers’ enthusiasm for returning to the highest category has been shot. In this context, the expectation to know the reinforcements that the new coach will bring remains latent.

Pinto’s return to Unión Magdalena, a team he already managed in 1991, comes after his time at Deportivo Cali in the 2023 BetPlay League. The Santander coach arrives with the goal of promoting the club to the highest category of Colombian football, where it has not competed since 2019.

For the banana growers, there was still the disappointment of the star that could not be obtained due to the murder of a referee on November 15, 1989.

Pinto, who has extensive experience in Colombian and international football, is recognized for his direct playing style and his ability to bring out the best in his players. In addition to his time at Unión Magdalena, he has coached teams such as Millonarios, Independiente Santa Fe, Cúcuta Deportivo, Junior de Barranquilla and the Colombian National Team.
