The arrival of Ricardo Gareca to the Ecuadorian team has been the subject at the level of teams in South America with a view to the 2026 Qualifiers. After leaving the Peruvian team after the playoffs for Qatar 2022, the ‘Tiger’ is loose and the Tri has called.
From El Comercio we are looking for the authorized voice on behalf of the Ecuadorian Football Federation, but due to issues that are part of the negotiation, he preferred to keep his identity a secret. In the northern country they are looking for a replacement for Gustavo Alfaro, who took them to Qatar.
While many already take the pass for granted, an FEF leader assured us that they are still in talks with Ricardo Gareca. “It is a process that is not quick. Everything is still under analysis and review, ”he told us.
Negotiations exist and there is a high probability that Ricardo Gareca will assume the position. “Making comments at this time does not help the process at all,” the source consulted tells us. Many CVs must reach the Ecuadorian Football Federation, however, President Francisco Egas and his sports commission are analyzing the best profile.
The budget issue
The most important issue to define is always economic. As we learned, Gustavo Alfaro’s technical command was looking for a contract for four million dollars after qualifying for Qatar. In the previous process he received income of 1.6 million dollars.
The highlight is that Ricardo Gareca’s work in the Peruvian team was one of the best paid on the continent. The ‘Tiger’ earned approximately 3.5 million annually in our country. It is not known the claims of the Argentine coach at the moment, but that is always the big issue to reach agreements.
What achievements did Ricardo Gareca have with the Peruvian National Team?
- Qualification for the 2018 World Cup in Russia (after 36 years)
- Finalist in the Copa América 2019
- Third place in the Copa América 2015
- Second consecutive repechage to go to Qatar 2022
