Lima Alliance confirmed the arrival at the club of Nestor Bonillo in August 2023 to take on the role of external consultant in the Intimate team's sports management development and infrastructure. Since his arrival, Bonillo has worked to improve the structure of the Victorian institution and plan the sports area. He was also involved in designing the squad formation for the new 2024 season. However, in recent hours there has been talk about his continuity at the club after it was confirmed that Ricardo Gareca will be the future coach of the Chilean team.
How to remember Nestor Bonillo worked with the “Tigre” in the Peruvian team and took on the role of fitness trainer. However, they were not only together in Bicolor, but also at the Vélez Sarfield club in Argentina.
What is known about the continuity of Néstor Bonillo in Alianza Lima?
Given the 65-year-old coach's arrival at La Roja, Néstor Bonillo's stay in the immediate team is not confirmed and he could leave the club in the coming days.
According to the information from the portal Ovación, although Alianza Lima is satisfied with the work of Bonillo in the sports sector, the good relationship that he has with Ricardo Gareca would mean that he could become part of the new technical team in command of the “Tiger”.
