Along with Rueda, Alexis Mendoza and Bernardo Redín would join the tricolor, who will be his technical assistants, while Carlos Eduardo Velasco and Gilberto Román will remain as his physical trainers. According to local press data, the DT and his coaching staff would earn a figure close to $ 3.5 million annually plus some prizes set for meeting goals in Qualifiers and America’s Cup.
In this way, “El Profe” would return to the senior national team, after leading it in three friendly matches with a balance of two draws, against Venezuela and Costa Rica, as well as a defeat against Mexico.
