The death of Freddy Rincón was confirmed on the night of Wednesday, April 13, after a traffic accident in Cali that caused a health condition that was ultimately irremediable.
The sadness for the death of the Valle del Cauca, who was an icon of the Colombian National Team, was reflected in the expressions on social networks, especially those of various world soccer figures.
A day later, one of the voices that expressed his desolation was Jorge Luis Pinto, who made his debut as a player and then as a technical assistant to Freddy Rincón, with whom he added curious personal anecdotes and to whom he left an emotional farewell.

The technical director launched his message from his personal Instagram account, in which he has more than 34,600 followers, to express his nostalgia, as he rarely does in public.
“Today my soul hurts. I am very sad with the departure of an admirable human being who, with his football, conquered the hearts of the world. Freddy, my dear friend, I will miss you forever! My solidarity hug for his whole family, ”he wrote.
In the publication, the man who was the coach of Colombia and Costa Rica appeared with Rincón, when they were in the Millonarios coaching staff, with the Valle del Cauca as his technical assistant.
This was the message with which the Nortesantanderean vented in his farewell to whoever was his most outstanding pupil in international football.
