La Selección Has New Soccer Coach

La Selección soccer coach, Juan de Dios Castillo, has quit. Fans are stunned by the move considering the fact that he just led the team to win the Copa Centroamericana in Panama just last month.

Honduran Federation (Fenafuth) official, Rafael Ferrari, said “We decided the right person to lead the national team process, which we hope concludes in Brazil in 2014, is professor Juan Carlos Osorio.”

Juan Carlos Osorio was appointed the new coach of the Honduran team on Wednesday. He is Colombian and 48 years old. He was an assistant coach at Manchester City in the mid-2000s, and steered Once Caldas to the Colombian league title in December. He is the second Colombian to take charge of Honduras’s national team.

Osorio’s debut game will be against Ecuador, now coached by Reinaldo Rueda. Rueda was the Honduras coach from 2006 to 2010, and led La Selección to their second World Cup finals in South Africa last year. The game will be a friendly match played on February 9th.
