Leo Gil: “We are lucky to have a coach like Quinteros”

Gustavo Quinteros has been able to completely change the chip of Colo Colo in this 2021 season, going from fighting the relegation to fighting for the title and the Chile Cup in just a matter of months with practically the same base of squad.

However, one of the key players for this rise of the Cacique has been Leonardo Gil, who arrived this year at the hands of the Santa Fe to make a difference in the white midfield.

El Colo highly values ​​the work of Quinteros in the popular bank and made it clear in conversation with the DirecTV program Más Que Fútbol, ​​where he stated that “We are lucky to have a technical director like Gustavo Quinteros, such an intelligent coach, with a great team and a clear idea of ​​the game, who transmits conviction and allows the group to believe.”

The midfielder also analyzed what was the last defeat against Cobresal, thinking that “We knew Cobresal’s way of playing, they came from triumphs. We did everything we could to win, we tried every way, but we didn’t have a good afternoon. We must continue to trust the team, in what we can do ”.




“The rivals know the way we play, every day it is more difficult, so we must continue to empower ourselves more and more. It is a very competitive league, all opponents are difficult ”, added.

Finally, he referred to the casualties of Iván Morales and Gabriel Costa in the following games, concluding that “They are two very sensitive casualties for us. We have already suffered the departure of Martín Rodríguez, who for me was the different player. We have a squad, when there are casualties, the team has responded ”.

The revenge after the fall against Cobresal is just around the corner, since tomorrow Wednesday the Cacique will play against Unión Española for the return of the semifinals of the Chile Cup. The Albos have the first option to play the final on Saturday, as they have a 4-0 advantage in favor after the first leg.
