The Peruvian soccer team decided on its former captain Juan Reynoso as the successor coach of Ricardo Gareca in the white and red team.
The Inca squad made the arrival of Reynoso official through a message posted on their social networks in which they welcome the former player.
The new national coach, 52, was a player for the Peru national team in the 1990s.
His career as a technical director began with modest teams in the Peruvian professional league and then rose to lead the popular Universitario de Deportes, where he won a championship in 2009, and with FBC Melgar in 2015.
He emigrated to Mexico, where he managed Club Puebla, which he managed to qualify for the Apertura 2020 league despite having one of the lowest payrolls in the highest category.

Then he came to Cruz Azul, one of the four most popular teams in the country, and in his first tournament he managed to give him his first league title since the winter of 1997.
Gareca decided in July that he would not extend his contract after seven years at the helm of the Peruvian team.
Peru finished the most recent South American qualifiers in fifth place, with 24 points from 18 games. He thus advanced to an intercontinental playoff, but fell on penalties to Australia.
