“Reyes lost in his tactics and his way of looking to win the rival, León in Pereira’s goalscorer and the same story when they reach Junior, Nothing at all. Bacca, he looks like a former player, the central defenders are wrong! Look, all they get him out of the box is a goal. The only one who is saved: Quintero”. -@0703_georges
“This team was not built to surround JuanFer (as it should have been). Reyes designed him to play something else (which we don’t know yet). The unexpected arrival of the 10 ended up tangle the inexperienced DT (inexplicable) That’s why we see 10 in salsa and the rest in ballads (for 4 years)”. -@Eric25Mendoza
