Reinoso, of Chilean origin, was one of the foreigners that contributed the most to Club America. Winning many titles and leaving his legacy in the famous institution, he made a huge impact both as a player and as a coach.
In his current team, Reinoso has 8 players that were not born in Mexico; four of them occupy a ‘foreign’ space and 4 of whom are now considered homegrown.
Veracruz are the current leaders of the league with seven points, while in the cup they are group leaders with five points.
