Thanks for the context. MLSSOCCER is crediting JPA as being part of the continental-winning team.
 
"Angel most recently served as a member of the technical staff at Atletico Nacional in Colombia, helping the club to one of the most successful eras in its history and a Copa Libertadores title in 2016."

the former president Juan Carlos de la Cuesta built that team... He picked JCO yes Juan Carlos Osorio and Osorio took them to the finals of the Copa Sudaméricana but lost...
Then he got Renaldo Rueda and together they topped off the side with additions to win the Copa Libretadores.. Then JPA came in as a consultant for the board and then there was a power struggle between him Rueda assistants and De La Cuesta so De la Cuesta left and they got a PR guy to be the president not a football guy and they listened to JPA and He fought with Rueda assistants and Rueda left and that was that... They listened again to JPA and asked JCO who they should get to replace Rueda and the replacement didn't even last 6 months
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

Thats not what is going on at all. JPA has had conflict with the coaching staff of Atletico because he spent most of the budget on infrastructure and training facilities and he didnt give Rueda the money he wanted for players. He sacrificed short term on field performance for long term growth. Its a matter of opinion if he is doing his job or not.

Has the team been struggling? Yes
Did he not replace the outgoing players that won the Copa Lib? Yes

Will Atletico have the best training, youth, and conditioning facilities in Colombia? Absolutely

and JPA thought that was more important for the Club.


JPA wanted the strength coach fired and wanted a guy that was more in tuned with more modern training to go with the new modern facilities... The facilities were Osorio and De La Cuesta idea they had started the search for the land since back then all JPA did was suggest that Rueda guy's wouldn't know how to train the squad with the modern equipment... Rueda didn't like that they wanted to replace his staff and this mostly happened while Rueda stepped away from the team for 6 months due to health issues.. So he quit shortly after coming back...

$36K, which is bad enough.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.
