University of Sports announced a new signing for the final stretch of the League 1 Betsson 2023. It is not about a forward or midfielder, but rather a move in the offices: through its social networks, the merengue club confirmed that Antonio García Pye returns and will be officially presented this Monday, September 25, from 12:00 p.m. (time in Peru and Colombia). The former national team manager in the Peruvian Football Federation (FPF) was already at the student institution during the 1992, 1993 and 2009 titles.
After sharing an enigmatic message on the networks on Friday night, the ‘U’ finally decided to reveal that García Pye will work with them again. “This Monday the official presentation of Antonio García Pye continues live, who returns to the largest team in Peru“, noted the cream team on its official Twitter account. “After sharing with us the titles of 1992, 1993 and 2009… he comes for more”, he noted a few hours before.
It was learned that Antonio arrives at Universitario to work as an advisor and spokesperson until the end of Liga 1 Betsson 2023. Starting next year he will have another position within the club, which will surely be mentioned during his presentation on Monday. Let us remember that recently the same FPF detailed that García Pye left his position to be occupied by Franco Navarro Mandayo.
Antonio is an industrial engineer by profession. His work near the Lolo Fernández stadium connected him a lot with the club. He then came to sports management for four seasons. He specialized with courses and then joined the eliminatory process towards France 98, along with Juan Carlos Oblitas.
He returned to the cream institution and won the 2009 championship. After a brief stint at Juan Aurich in Chiclayo, he came to the FPF national team management until 2023. Now he returns to the club of his loves to work for a goal : get the long-awaited 27th star that fans, players and the technical team so desire. Of course, it will also be part of the centenary.
