The Selecta coach explained the U-20 team’s arrival and final participation in the remaining matches of the Octagonal. “If the 17-year-old was better than the Major in training, I wouldn’t wait 3 years,” he said.
During the interview with Radio Fanáticos, coach of the Selecta team, Hugo Perez He touched on a wide range of issues related to blue and white, ahead of the January matches of the Concacaf Octagonal Final and which players can participate.
About the players Lisandro Claros and Jaime Ortiz, Who joined Selecta on the second call, Perez confirmed that they will be part of the rotation. “Claros is with us because he can go to Honduras, and we have to keep working with him, because maybe we need another center,” he said.
“As long as Brian Gill doesn’t sign the papers, I can’t say when he’ll be in the Selecta.”
Hugo Perez called young Alejandro Cano (San Jose Earthquakes, flyer), Nathan Ordaz (Los Angeles, in the foreground), Daryl Turcius (FC Cincinnati, midfielder) and Anthony Ramirez (Philadelphia Union, steering wheel), more Jimmy Nagaro and Alejandro Serrano, They are defenders and part of the reserve Alianza FC and Santa Tecla FC, respectively.
“The rest of the players are the ones that catch my eye now, because they have dual citizenship, the United States can contact them now and MLS is working alongside them and we want to take advantage of their talent and bring them in,” he said.
On the other hand, Hugo Pérez confirmed that he would not prioritize MLS, although if it is the MLS that contributes more players and profiles better than the Salvadorian League, it will continue to bring prospects to the national teams if someone these days convinces him that be on Mayor Selecta’s list, he’ll call him.

“If any of the guys make a good impression on me, we’ll call them up, we have nothing to lose with the guys. If the 17-year-old is better than the major in training, I won’t wait three years and hope to find one like that,” Judge the coach.
The national coach also talked about other players, such as the case of Nelson Bonilla, whose return to Selecta saved him, although he also realizes that with the increase in covid-19 cases, his access may be jeopardized. “A 9 like him is interesting, we need him, but if Thailand says they will have a week of quarantine on return, we can lose him”, He said.
Regarding VAR, he said the ideal was to have it from the start, but in the end it is a necessary tool and it is already in football today.
And about his coaching staff, he said that they are still waiting to sign contracts, but it is just a matter of formality, because continuity is guaranteed in them for this year. “I am happy with the coaching staff I have, even though they say it is the worst and that they are losers. The idea is to visit federations and clubs in Europe to continue learning (in the future)”via Perez.
