Carlos Enzo Reinoso Valdenegro (born 7 March 1945) is a former Chilean footballer and current manager of Mexican club Veracruz.

He began his career in the 1960s playing for Audax Italiano in his native Chile. In 1970 Reinoso was scouted by Mexican club América. He is considered one of the greatest foreign players in Mexican football history,[4] and among the greatest players in Club América history.[5][6][7]

Playing career[edit]

Carlos Reinoso began his career in his home country playing for Audax Italiano. He has described his childhood as living poor and having many financial problems. When he was 15 he joined Audax Italiano. At 16 he played In the first division. A year later he was selected to play for the youth national team of Chile. In 1968, Reinoso was the league's top goal scorer. In 1970, fellow Chilean club Colo-Colo was interested in signing Reinoso, but he opted to play for Club América of Mexico. His debut with América came in 1970 in a league match against Atlante. In this golden decade, won the league in 1970–71 and 1975–76 seasons, Cup champion Mexico in the 1973–74 season, Champion of Champions in 1975–6 and the CONCACAF Cup in 1978. And thanks to Reinoso, America got its greatest achievement: the American Cup in 1977 against Boca Juniors of Argentina. Also won two international titles: the Champions Cup of CONCACAF (1977) and the InterAmerican Cup (1978), the latter, his greatest achievement, after getting the winning score as much as against Boca Juniors of Argentina, in a picture goal on a direct free kick from left side. In America, the wheel turned a total of 81 goals (88 goals, taking into account the round robin). During the 72-73 Cup Tournament against Atletico Spanish, Carlos Reinoso scored a goal from the midfield, to resume the match after a goal against. The goalkeeper was the ex-cream, Vazquez del Mercado. That great goal overshadowed the Bulls win 4-2, because it was in everyone's mind for a similar action that Pele had tried in Mexico 70 World Cup and had failed. His exploits in the "Eagles" of America along the forward Enrique Borja the idols enshrined as the greatest football club in history. Their quality in the field and his great skill to control and distribute the ball to Carlos Reinoso earned him recognition in the national football. In his playing days he shared the field with Enrique Borja, Horacio López Salgado, Roberto "Monito" Rodriguez, Prudencio "Pajarito" Cortés, René "Popeye" Trujillo, Mario "Pichojos" Perez, Osvaldo Castro "Pata Bendita", Hugo Enrique Kiese and Cesareo Victorino, among others.2 In the Chilean Soccer Team, midfielder Reinoso was in the playoffs and the World Cup Germany 1974 form a class midfield alongside Guillermo "Loco" Paez and Francisco "Chamaco" Valdés. During the World Cup with a lot of work led the team's midfield with long shots and a team move to another tube and a more than good, however the misfortune of facing the two Germanies from local, expulsion from their peers and to Torrential rain prevented the South American team will proceed to the next round by getting two draws and a defeat against the host. With the passage of time continued to be nominated Reinoso their team, but ultimately could never adapt to it mainly due to personality differences and leadership among the same Francisco Valdés and Carlos Reinoso.


After Reinoso retired, he became América's head coach on two separate occasions. His last head coaching job was at the head of Tecos UAG in Mexico, in 2006. Carlos Reinoso is mostly remembered as a coach in the Club América team currently and previously directed and led in two stages. The first from 1982 to 1985 and the second in 1998.

A year later avenged America and the end of the 1983–1984 season, defeated arch-rival, Chivas, 3 goals to 1. It was the first championship as a coach Reinoso. For the next season, the Eagles get the bicampeonato to beat the Pumas in a controversial third playoff game at the stadium Corregidor of Querétaro. Brailovsky, with two goals, and the young Carlos Hermosillo, given the many of victory. Reinoso this season shared the helm with Mario "Pichojos" Perez and Miguel Angel "Lefty" Lopez. After the double with the Eagles, Reinoso emigrated to Tampico Madero and his coaching career was descending slowly, until retiring temporarily. He returned in the late 1990s to lead Atlas, Veracruz, Toros Neza, Leon, America and Atlante. He is currently retired from the court on a charge of sporting director at Atlante.
