Gustavo Huertta (61) knows Cobresal perfectly. He defended him as a player in the 80s and assumed a coach in 1991, then returned in 2004. And yes, he returned to El Salvador. They went looking for him last year to avoid going down to Second (strictly speaking, third category) and they did. Now he struggles to return to Primarh in the hands of his most decisive player, Ever Catero.
He was excited after the epic return to Wanderers.
The match was the one that led us to celebrate everything. We played against a great rival and the time was over, but the result did not appeal. Finally, we managed to turn the result of Valparaiso and obviously it made us live with great joy what happened in the end.
Did you imagine this situation at your discounts?
The truth is, no. We did not create a case, although we dominated, but we lacked clarity. We were also tired. One ball stopped giving us 3-1 and we thought they were ready for punishment. Then we again scored. Everything was given in a few minutes and this led to a very small situation.
Cobresal is a team of miracles?
I do not know if miracles. What to do in Cobresal costs everything. I arrived last year and the team went to Segunda with six dates to go. We were able to reverse this, and this year we have been at the forefront throughout the year. There are few people in El Salvador, few people arrive at the stadium and there are a few fans scattered throughout the country. Cobresal is a team that suits the work of players and coaches for everything that lives here.
Now Cobreloa is coming to dream …
This will be a tough game. Cobreloa is a team with a huge history that supports him and a very experienced player. He's also very strong at home because he has a lot of people behind and adds that he did not have any attire.
Are the two mining groups have merit to be the first?
In the total table they finished with more points than us. The credit is shared, we are very regular and we have made a very good first round. They turned their heads down, they were not good in the first part, but then yes. The credit for the rise is for both.
They had a big first wheel and then they collapsed. What happened there?
Suddenly it is difficult to maintain regularity in 30 dates. We had the loss of a very important player like Cantro. The second phase did not play and each team missed its scorer. I think everything we created for Cantro in the first round, we did not do in the second.
How do you rate your work so far?
It is difficult to talk about the merits of the players here, and it depends a lot on the facilities the club gives to develop a project. I arrived on a very complex stage; I do not really know if the club would survive if it was not second. I feel committed to the recovery and the huge campaign we had this year.
There are several players from the historic title of Cobresal. How important are they at such times?
Not only are they the pillars. Here are great players who have also contributed a lot. There is a base of experienced people who have mixed with young people. When I arrived last year, I felt the campus slept on the laurels of the 2015 title. They did not realize the bad weather the club and the people themselves were. This shake serves and affects the good campaign.
You criticized what happened to Fernando Diaz. Leave the Chilean technician in the wrong way?
We leave a very bad image of what the Technical College is. If we accept the manual after seeing the technician leave and take over, it looks ugly. One may not know what is happening to the trainee, but it is ugly that the President of the Technical College is looking for the coach to leave. He speaks very badly about the situation.
