Julio Avelino Comesaña did not arrive in Colombia via Barranquilla. He was hired by Millionaires in 1972 and that year he was champion. In Bogotá he lasted a year and a half and then came to Junior. His house, no less.
This Uruguayan nationalized in Curramba, with comings and goings, has been part of the history of Junior: he won a title as a player, in 1977, and as DT he won three League titles , two from Superliga and one from Copa Colombia. Once again, he is back.
Juan Cruz Real is no longer the coach of Junior 'Julio X, el monarca' and the best memes of Comesaña's return to Junior
An idyll with Junior
Every time Fuad Char, Junior's largest shareholder, picks up the phone to hire Comesaña, some voices of protest appear. But lately he gets away with it.
He now arrives to assume the role after the departure of Juan Cruz Real , which could not lead the club to what was desired by the leadership.
Take note and take a breath: in Barranquilla they have announced the hiring of Comesaña as Junior coach in 1991, 1992, 1997, 2002, 2008, 2014, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2022.

But his style has been adapted very well to that of the managers and to the frenetic way the city lives around the team.
It has come as a solution, but it has also come as an emergency exit, like when they hired him in 2008 to save Junior from relegation. Not only did he get him out of the red zone, but he took him to the final, which he lost to Once Caldas.

A his 72 years and after winning the 2020 Super League, in the year of the pandemic, he said no more and handed in his resignation letter.
Then he was at Independiente Medellín, where he was unable to successfully complete his cycle.
What is the secret of Comesaña? “Simple: work, get to know the club, get to know our idiosyncrasies. As he says, he lifts a stone at the headquarters and knows what he is going to find”, one of his students, Víctor Danilo Pacheco, explained at the time.
Now he has the mission of straightening the path of Junior in the League and with the option of qualifying for the final of the Copa Colombia.
