After the terrible results obtained by the Colombia National Team against Uruguay and Ecuador in the last qualifying date, different media have talked about the resignation of Carlos Queiroz and have even considered different names to replace the Portuguese as helmsman of the Colombian team.

But this Friday it became known that The FCF Executive Committee does not have the money or names to be able to remove the technical director of the tricolor, despite the poor results.

After the terrible results obtained by the Colombia National Team against Uruguay and Ecuador in the last qualifying date, different media have talked about the resignation of Carlos Queiroz and have even considered different names to replace the Portuguese as helmsman of the Colombian team.

But this Friday it became known that the FCF Executive Committee does not have the money or names to be able to remove the technical director from the tricolor, despite the poor results.

The journalist Carlo Antonio Vélez referred to Álvaro González’s position, which at first was said to be in agreement with Queiroz’s departure, but clarified that it is so.

Vélez recounted the details of the meeting that took place last Thursday, November 19, and said that there is not a single candidate to replace Queiroz. And much less money for the compensation that would be 2 million dollars.

“Yesterday, almost around 10 in the morning, the president (Ramón) Jesurún phoned his vice president, Álvaro González. And he told him that he had a meeting, the night before, with ‘the mister’. That they were talking about the situation, that ‘El Mister’ was sad, worried, crestfallen, but wanting to continue ”.

According to the journalist, Álvaro González asked Jesurun if he had the replacement ready to what the leader said no.

Álvaro González tells Jesurún; – Ramón, and do you have the replacement ready? Because some suppose that if we leave this man we must have, at least, one situation on track.

The Colombia National Team is going through a serious economic situation due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has lowered sponsorships; the lack of matches with an audience in Barranquilla and the fines for the alleged responsibility of the managers and the Federation in the resale of tickets for the Russia 2018 World Cup Qualifiers.

This is what Vélez said after having the information from the environment of González Alzate, who is vice president of the FCF because he is president of Dif Fútbol, ​​and who met virtually with the president Ramón Jesurún and with Fernando Jaramillo, who is the president of Dimayor.

“The first thing González says, at 10 in the morning, to Ramón, is; – Do we have the money, do we have the replacement? -. Faced with 2 negative responses, he has said; – Why don’t we take a while and talk? We analyze all those details and we are not ‘lurching’ – ”said Vélez.

With this, the president and vice presidents agreed to meet soon

The communicator assured that after this talk, the president and vice presidents met and decided that Queiroz should continue as a team coach, since there is no viable and economic alternative at this time.

Vélez also ensures that the FCC will not remove Queiroz unless he resigns …

It is not true that they have spoken with him to fix it, it is not true that they are going to pay him money, it is not true that he has resigned. I don’t know what could happen today, but until midnight, that hadn’t happened …

The journalist ends his opinion column by saying that the highest representatives of FCF Jesurún, Álvaro González and Fernando Jaramillo have not spoken with any Latin American businessman or technician.

“Officially the Federation has not made contact with anyone. Álvaro González’s position is that of a Colombian coach, the only coach he has in mind is Reinaldo Rued (…) While this Executive Committee is in the Federation, Osorio will not be a Colombian coach. They have an ‘old data’ discrepancy. “

For now there is no official statement from the Colombian Football Federation or Carlos Queiroz about his future.
