Ricardo Gareca responds to criticism of Chile's leadership

After he was announced as the new coach of the Chilean team, many Bicolor fans questioned the path taken by Ricardo Gareca and even called him a “traitor”. Given these comments, the coach made it clear that it was a professional decision.

“We gave it our all with Peru and now we will do the same with Chile. I dedicate myself to football and my life goes on. Just like they can vote for whoever they want and disband whoever they want, I can vote for whoever I want.” But I respect decisions. We are talking about football, not about something political or something that goes far beyond decisions of other kinds. They hire you and you have to do your job. I wish Peru the best, but I will do “We will do everything so that Chile achieves its goals,” he said.
