He's going to mess them up the way he did with Atletico Nacional...

He was a good striker byt he's horrible in the FO.. He ruined a team that easily won a continental tournament and turned them into a team that can't even beat a minnow from their own league
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

Thanks for the context. MLSSOCCER is crediting JPA as being part of the continental-winning team.

Saw it on twitter, with Nacional fans saying that it's good that he's gone. What role did he have for Nacional?


RIP Guillermo Romulo, Alexander Francis Orig and Celenio Eleazar.

Shame he can't be a part of our organization. Love when we keep club legends within our family with guys like Woly and Jolley. Too bad we can't do it with JPA.

No, Osorio had moved onto Mexico well before their continental title.

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.

He'd fit right in here.

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