Cubero: «When I lose the final, the two people I call are Jafet and Agustín»
After the hard blow of losing Linafa's final of the Apertura tournament with Sarchí, the team of which he is the sports manager, the red and black midfielder called the two leaders to ask for their criteria and stated that, "they armed me with the courage to make decisions." Cubero acknowledges that they are very different, although this time they agreed on something.
Although Jafet Soto and Agustín Lleida are very different people, they can sometimes have very similar points of view, especially when it comes to making decisions after suffering a difficult result.
José Miguel Cubero understood this just a month ago, when his team, the Sarchí Sports Association, lost the final of the Linafa Opening tournament against Quepos Cambute and called both managers to ask for their opinion.
The veteran midfielder is just beginning his managerial career, since he is the sports director of the sarchiseños and, from his point of view, it is valuable to nurture himself with multiple soccer criteria. And even more after losing a national final.
The Florentine manager and the red and black agreed that, if he could do it, it was time to strengthen himself with pieces of experience, since he was one step away from getting promotion to the Second Category.
«Now that we lost the final, the 2 people I call when I was already at home more calm went to Jafet (Soto) and Agustín (Lleida) so that they could guide me. They both told me what was next and they told me, 'well, if you've already reached a final, if you feel you have to strengthen the team and you think you can, you're five months away from being able to have a team in the Second Division,'" he said. Cubero to 'Columbia'.
"That's when I plucked up the courage and said, 'Now I'm going after these players (Christian Lagos and Frank Zamora) that I already had in advance. They advised me », added the 2014 Brazil World Cup player, about his decision to strengthen the club.
After that call, Cubero specified the reinforcements. He wanted to have two heavyweight gunners, so he finalized the signings of Zamora and Lagos.
He also added to the squad the brothers Miguel and Erick Marín and a Brazilian creative, Dilson. His goal is to climb the category as soon as possible.

Learn from both. In the midst of this sporting challenge, the midfielder is projected in a different facet, of a managerial and formative nature, since the Sarchiseño club is nurtured by the talents that are developed in the academy that the player created five years ago.
The player takes advantage of the knowledge of both leaders to learn.
“They are two people, both Jafet and Agustín, who have their way of being and their temperament and their different way of seeing things, but you have to learn from everyone,” he pointed out.
«In life you have to be intelligent, all good things you have to see why they are done. If Herediano has generated so many championships in the last decade, it is for a reason, and on the subject of the League, as soon as I arrived at the institution and I see that it begins to grow with Agustín in the institution and in the minor leagues it always begins to be champion It's because good things are being done," he said.
In addition to making sporting decisions, Cubero meets with sponsors and does everything possible to offer the ideal conditions for this Linafa club to become stronger and focus on getting a ticket to the Liga de Ascenso.
Currently, one of the most important business partners is his former teammate, Marcel Hernández (Cartaginés), who has a clothing brand and actively contributes to the project led by Cubero.
He also consults with other coaches, such as the former coach of the 'Tricolor' Mayor, Rónald González.
"Professor Rónald was sometimes called, to talk about training methodology," Cubero pointed out.
