Playing years[edit]

Club career[edit]

Nicknamed Imacasa after the company he worked for, Recinos began his professional football career at FAS where he stayed for sixteen years. He won three domestic titles with FAS (1977–78, 1978–79, 1981)[1] and helped them capture their first and so far only international title when they won the CONCACAF Champions' Cup in 1979.[2] After his contract with FAS ended in 1982, he spent two years on the sidelines following an injury before signing with UES for one year in 1984. In 1985, he joined Alianza and was part of the team that made the final against Atlético Marte, however they were defeated by Atlético Marte in extra time and this would be his swansong as he retired soon after.

International career[edit]

He also played for El Salvador for 10 years and has represented his country in 16 FIFA World Cup qualification matches and at the 1982 FIFA World Cup in Spain.[3]

Managing years[edit]

During his twilight playing years, he trained to be a football coach and graduated as a soccer technical-director from AEFES (Association of soccer Trainers of El Salvador) in 1984. His first experience at the Primera División was while serving as assistant coach to Costa Rican Marvin Rodríguez at FAS. He became the national coach of El Salvador's Under 17, Under 20 and the national football team.[4] In the Segunda División de Fútbol Salvadoreño, he directed Once Lobos of Chalchuapa, Huracán of Atiquizaya, Once Municipal of Ahuachapán, and Malocas of Coatepeque.

He founded C.D FAS's Infanto-Youthful school of soccer, from where some outstanding youthful soccer players came out of, like Gerald arose Towns, Alfredo Pacheco, Luis Castro, Juan Flores and Hellman Monterroso.

Personal life[edit]

Recinos was born in San Salvador and attended school and university. He is married to Bertha Alicia Salazar and they have three children: Jenny Elizabeth, Carlos Humberto and Roberto Carlos.
