He Cali America has put an end to the uncertainty over his future by announcing Jorge ‘Polilla’ Da Silva as his new coach. The experienced Uruguayan coach, who already led the team between 2017 and 2018assumes the position with the aim of straightening the course of the club in the second semester.

“Well, I think he is a person who can contribute a lot in whatever role he has. Not yet, we haven’t talked much about what his role is going to be in the coaching staff, but he is a person who knows the club very well, who knows very well what the América player is, knows how the footballer has to feel the t-shirt. So, you always have to have people who can provide benefits for your work.”

Before answering the question about Alex Escobar’s future in the institution, Polilla spoke about his reunion with his former teammate on the court and said that it was very nice to see Escobar and remember things they experienced in América.

“I just saw him there, it’s been many years since we saw each other. The truth is that it made me very happy, because we were with him the entire period that I was with América as a player.
