In 2001, he returned to Deportivo Cali, before moving to Argentina in 2003 to join Newell's Old Boys.

International career[edit]

Patiño has been a regular in the Colombia national football team. He was part of the Colombian team that reached the semi final of the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup which they lost 1-0 to Cameroon. In this game Marc-Vivien Foé collapsed and died and Patiño was the closest player on the pitch to Foé at the time, and was the first to check on his situation.

He was part of the Colombian team that reached the Semi finals of the 2005 CONCACAF Gold Cup in which Colombia lost 3-2 to Panama.
