play on Colo Colo It is undoubtedly the dream of several young footballers in our area. One that very few can, and which, when achieved, may not be dimensioned in its maximum expression. At least that happened Jean-Paul Pinedawho to talk to on the field He discussed his passage through the albos in 2012.
That year, the now ex-player of San Felipe He completed 15 commitments in defense of the “Cacique”, where he was able to break the nets 5 times.
“I was young, I was still 22 years old, I had played Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana, I debuted as an adult for La Roja, I had several goals in my career… The truth is that I made the biggest mistake of my career by ending my contract with the club sooner than usual.”. he assures, without predicting that he would enlist after his abrupt departure cobresal.
Pineda dreamed of going to France
“I went to the notary and canceled without thinking, without knowing what I was doing.” He continues, adding later: “I did well, but my intention was to jump to Europe quickly. That played against me. The first year I played all the games and was the goal scorer for Colo Colo in Copa Chile. I scored 6 goals in 5 matches and in the National Championship I played very little. At the same time, some Argentinians arrived and told me they would take me to Montpellier in France., but since I didn’t have much knowledge nor was I given good advice because I was a boy, I asked to leave the institution overnight. I made a big mistake.”
However, the striker does not regret his time at the Monumental Stadium: “At least I fulfilled my dream of playing there, because since childhood they instilled in me that I am a Colo Colo, and I managed to to get there. I would have done more important things if I hadn’t been ill advised.”
Now Pineda, 33, is waiting for a club to make him an offer, after what was his football renaissance in San Felipe, where he scored 8 goals and arrived with his side at the Promotion League.
