It is implausible to reduce to a simple resignation of Carlos Queiroz his departure from the technical direction of the Colombian National Team, after the 6-1 against Ecuador and the 0-3 against Uruguay in November 2020. To believe that the DT left because of shame or is puerile. Well, that’s what Álvaro González Alzate, second vice president of the Football Federation, said without self-confidence for being the boss of the amateur division (Difútbol), the true czar of Colombian football in the shadows for 29 years.
Since that time, he has used to speak freely in some media and some journalists to tell his truths, his half-truths and his versions (the emphasis is intentional). Queiroz calls González a “liar and coward”.
The truth is, Queiroz did not resign. Queiroz was taken out. That is unconcealable. They paid compensation! And getting it out was fine. The whole country asked that he be thrown out when the dressing room blew up in his face in Barranquilla and Quito on the third and fourth dates of the tie.
The ‘drawer’ that Queiroz denounces having suffered in his very harsh and extensive statement is, according to the DT, from González and not from the players
What is not true is that he left just because, because he wanted to, right off the bat, as González said. And the ‘drawer’ that Queiroz denounces having suffered in his extremely harsh and extensive pronouncement is, according to the DT, from González and not from the players, as the friendly press of the managerial czar came out to misrepresent immediately, this Sunday.
Remember that González wanted to put Juan Carlos Osorio in office, as Osorio himself told it, and made González himself admit his sympathy for him, which forced Ramón Jesurún, the president of the Federation, to step out that version assuring that the contacts of a director did not represent the entire executive committee. In summary, the ‘drawer’ that Queiroz speaks of is that. Gonzalez’s, no other.
What happened in the group of players in those two games is still the subject of accurate publication, as there are a thousand versions. The one that has more quality of veracity indicates that the change of Wílmar Barrios, 32 minutes into the game that Colombia lost against Uruguay, caused a protest from several players of the Barrios combo.
They would have vehemently complained about Quieroz for ‘blaming’ Barrios for the partial defeat with that modification, and not having taken out James Rodríguez, who missed the pass that caused the first goal and played poorly.
James would have been accused of being “protected and pampered” by DT. The versions say that James reacted from the mouth and that the scuffle between players ended in “shoving and necking”. Some say that Lerma was the one who squeezed James. Others, that it was Muriel who shook him. That is yet to be told well.
The truth is that three days later, in Quito, the National Team was a mockery, Ospina did not cover, Quieroz returned to take out half the team at halftime and received an ignominious win, the worst in 45 years. That cost the exit – well exit! – to the DT.
But beware: if the National Team is eliminated from the World Cup (as is the greatest probability), it will not be because of those two games, it will be because of what was lost under the command of Reinaldo Rueda in Barranquilla and La Paz. Let’s be clear: that’s something else.
Queiroz, with hairs and signs
Quieroz says that González is also lying when he says that he was absent from work and hid from the managers. With hair and signs he remembers how his work was in quarantine days due to the covid pandemic. What Queiroz said in this sense is credible. Also, because his natural managerial interlocutor was Jesurún, nobody else.
The other topic that is about to be told well is what happened to Des MacAleenan, the deceased Irish goalkeeper coach who brought Queiroz to replace Eduardo Niño.
On Sunday, like a year ago when MacAleenan was found dead in his home, Queiroz pointed to those who “abandoned him” because of his covid positive: “That will be on their consciences,” he repeated, blaming them for his suicide because of his depression and the dismissal of the coaching staff. Those close to the Federation have slipped for months that MacAleenan and Queiroz had a close relationship, suggestions that from every point of view are low and mean.
The truths said by Queiroz are credible…
