Salas’ contract expires at the end of 2022. However, the administration of the Victorian club would have given a pause to the search for a DT and would bet on the “Chicho” project.
“A high-ranking leader in Alianza Lima was in Cusco yesterday and had a meeting with Guillermo Salas prior to the game that was played at the Garcilaso in Cusco. Alianza Lima would have put a pause in the search for his coach, because he considers that possibly Chicho Salas targets the team. Not only can he win the Clausura, but he can take it to the Copa Libertadores next year.”said the journalist José Varela on Líbero TV.
The objectives that Chicho Salas must meet
However, for Chicho Salas to continue as coach of Alianza Lima in 2023, he must meet two fundamental objectives in the remainder of League 1: win the Clausura Tournament and achieve the two-time championship or be second and qualify for the Copa Libertadores.
“If Chicho Salas fights to the end of the tournament with Alianza Lima and if he wins the bi-championship, or in its effect, he is second and qualifies for the Libertadores, Salas will be supported in the technical direction next year”he concluded.
