Reynoso played 84 games for the Peruvian national team, scored five goals, and played in the Copa América in 1987, 1989, 1993 and 1999.

In his career as a player, he wore the colors of Alianza Lima, Universitario Deportes, and Cruz Azul, in Mexico, where he defended Celeste from 1994 to 2002.

During his time as coach, he has coached Peruvian teams such as Coronel Bolognesi, from the southern department of Tacana, with whom he won the 2007 Clausura Tournament title and qualified for the Copa Libertadores for the first time in the club’s history.

From 2008 to 2010 he coached Universitario, later he coached the Chiclayo team, Juan Aurich, for a few months, and another brief season at Sporting Cristal in 2011.

He was also coach of Melgar, from 2014 to 2017, stage in which he played several continental tournaments.

As in his time as a player, he traveled to Mexico where he trained Puebla, to, in 2021, reach the first division of that country with Cruz Azul.

With that club he ended the 23-year curse that the Celestes dragged when they won the MX League.

The Peruvian was elected “best coach in the Peruvian League” three times, in 2009, 2015 and 2016 and has repeatedly broadcast to sports media that training Blanquirroja was his dream.

He arrives with the mission of taking the team to the 2026 World Cup, after Peru was eliminated in the playoff against Australia for Qatar 2022.

With that game, Gareca’s contract ended, a coach who in seven years became a symbol in the country by qualifying for Russia 2018 after 36 years of drought.

Reynoso will now have the task of rearming a team from which, due to age, several of its figures will fall and thus make Gareca, a great national hero, forget
