Get to know the candidates' suggestions for the ANFP armchair | Sports



This Thursday, leaders of the team that constitute the National Association of Professional Football (ANFP) will define who will assume the presidency of the club council, and the cycle that Arturo Salah led since January 2016 will end.

The unit that integrates and presides over Football Association in Chile comes from complicated years following the mandate that Sergio Jadue served between 2011 and 2015 after being charged with the US corruption system in the FIFA gate.

In order to know the proposals of the three candidates, ADN Deportes submitted an investigation to Jorge Uauy, Sebastián Moreno and Harold Mayne-Nicholls, which delivers its proposals for seven key issues for the four years their term will be.

1) Should Reinaldo Rueda continue in the selection?

Uauy: I have been very urged and, as I said on previous occasions to the media, I do not know about the Rueda project in its entirety. Consequently, at the beginning of my period, it will no doubt be one of the first meetings I will have. After that and after the meeting Reinaldo, in professional and human terms, the future of the national team's technical direction will be decided. All answers today have hurried. I believe in the process but also in the results. Like it or not.

Moreno: We have a commitment to develop with Reinaldo Rueda and his coaching staff. In the medium term we have Copa América. We must revive two championships as we won in previous releases. And the main goal is to qualify for Qatar World Cup. Both Reinaldo and his technical staff have guarantees to develop their work for which he was employed.

Mayne-Nicholls: I'm not very positive about interrupting technical processes. Reinaldo Rueda has already done a fairly extensive evaluation of all our players available for the national team and I do not think it would be a good idea to miss this year's work.

2) What project do you have for Juan Pinto Durán Complex?

Uauy: I understand that there is an ongoing project, which we must review in detail. In the meantime, we have not been informed about it. However, I have the absolute conviction that we need a high-level sports facility, in all respects for the national team, but we will be careful about the resources needed. We will not lend the ANFP's sustainability if there are no resources.

Moreno: We are planning to develop a first level where male football can coexist with all their inferior teams, with women's football, the adult team and the various selections that make up the young women's national team, including beach soccer and futsal. We look at Pinto Durán as a place where our football evolves in an integrated way.

Mayne Nicholls: The Chilean football team with everything they have given the land needs a new complex, but before looking at how it is done, a feasibility study must be done both economic and future sustainability in the complex before deciding if it is done or not done.

3) Do you intend to hold the tournament long or return to a short tournament?

Uauy: There is sufficient evidence of all types of tournaments to do the corresponding analyzes of what is best for Chilean football from a sporting and economic point of view. The kind of tournament we have in the future will depend on what the presidential council decides and what is best for the clubs.

Moreno: What is required for the development of football is its stability in the championship system. We only had one year with this championship system, as agreed by the presidential council. Certainly, we are in order to maintain the system in the meantime, stability is something fundamental and it is permanently evaluating with the presidential council.

Mayne-Nicholls: Types of tournaments are something that determines and determines the presidential council, it does not determine or decide the directory. Everyone knows that I always enjoyed long tournaments, but if the presidential council decides otherwise, we will work with great enthusiasm.

4) How do you intend to market the second professional division?

Uauy: We have another and innovative proposal aimed at increasing youth participation in this division, where it is privileged to compete in the second largest youth. It is also possible to create subsidiaries of the Primera A and Primera B teams, as is the case in the Spanish league.

Moreno: It may not be that the other division does not generate revenue. First, you have to worry about generating income for the clubs that consist of it. In other countries it is an important breeding place for the clubs and eventually for the national team. And by the way, the clubs need to get new tools so they can improve and create different income that allows them to survive in the medium and long term.

Mayne-Nicholls: It needs a deep revision, which can also cause deep structural changes. It does not seem like a tournament where there are so, but so few teams. We must also seek and promote all the benefits of participation in the ANFP, and this must be actively involved in some things like the financing of transfers and the costs of developing a match.

5) What project do you have for young football, to increase the proportion of players participating in smaller choices like reaching the age of adults?

Uauy: Having better clubs goes hand in hand with greater participation and better youth training. As a good circle, better clubs and more training, we are looking to have more competitive youth groups, which will affect the development of a more powerful adult team. Clearly, the rule in Part 20 does not help to empower young people, because when they reach 21 they leave without competition.

Moreno: We must understand that the core that generates football development is clubs. Selection players play from the clubs' young football. As embodied in our strategic plan, it is necessary to train players with characteristics of early-age selection players, starting from part 15 onwards. It is our duty to provide international friction with the characteristics of one player and to the extent that a group is acquired from the earliest age, done in other countries, which work in this way we will be able to consolidate an important group which in a significant percentage comes to be added to a substitute, then to form a permanent group in future absolute national law.

Mayne-Nicholls: The technicians in these divisions travel through the 32 clubs or 42 ANFP clubs, look at the field to train all children and according to that, they are making an evaluation and start inviting players. The journey and this perception of training, at least one week, and in the meantime plays one or two games of an international character, so the techniques will draw conclusions. And before the championship lasts three weeks or a month, and there to train with those that the technical body has left chosen. I think the methodological change is being imposed on Chilean football as soon as possible.

6) How do you intend to promote women's football?

Uauy: We have to go along the way to improve women's football federations in our clubs, so the women's football league is a reality and is of great importance.

Moreno: He already has a level. We have made great progress since 2016 until this date. We have presented a strategic plan for the development of women's football, both at national level and at the clubs. We understand that the pinnacle of its development is our national adult team and we will continue to promote women's football at national level and set up Part 15. In relation to the league we have already prepared – over the last two years – an investment much larger for transfers and accommodation of the various players included in the competition, in the different clubs.

Mayne-Nicholls: The big project for women's football is to bring the World Cup to Chile in 2027. We would have eight years to work and promote all women's football. It would be an event of great significance for the country and would be a good example.

7) Will he make changes or not improve the national team discipline? What?

Uauy: Indiscipline is not acceptable. For most children in our country, football players are examples in their lives, they are subject to admiration. We hope to establish, in accordance with the technical bodies, minimum standards for compliance in this respect.

Moreno: It is a subject that of course corresponds to the coaching staff and the coach, because he is the leader of the discipline in the locker room. It is a task that the national coach must perform and by the way, we are respectful of the decisions the coach has made.

Mayne-Nicholls: For me, discipline is not a matter of rules, it's not about permission, it's not about obligations. Discipline is a matter of commitment and every player who comes to one of our choices must understand that this is a bigger commitment, which is the commitment for the whole country. And that commitment is to maintain discipline. Those who do not understand will unfortunately not be able to integrate the Chilean team.
