Colombia Soccer Coach Jose Pekerman Quits

NewsColombia Soccer Coach Jose Pekerman Quits

(JTA) â€" Jose Pekerman has stepped down as the coach of the Colombia national soccer team after leading the South American country back to international prominence, including two World Cup appearances, during his nearly seven-year run.

Pekerman, 69, an Argentine who was the only Jewish coach or player participating in the 2018 World Cup, decided not to renew his contract after it expired Aug. 31.

The veteran coach led Colombia to the knockout stages of the past two World Cups after a 16-year absence from the tournament. In June 2016, he guided Colombia to third place in the prestigious Copa America competition, which was held in the United States.

“I’ll always check on how Colombia is getting on, not just in football but also as a country, as a people,” Pekerman said Tuesday at a news conference. “I’ll always be part of this country an d I hope the success continues.”

Last year also marked his record ninth World Cup as a coach.

Colombian Football Federation President Ramon Jesurun praised Pekerman’s performance, and star player James Rodriguez tweeted “You will always be my best teacher.”

Pekerman was born in Villa Dominguez, Argentina â€" otherwise known as Moises Ville â€" a small town in the Santa Fe province settled by Eastern European and Russian Jews in the late 19th century. He has lived much of his life in the Jewish neighborhood of Buenos Aires, Villa Crespo. His grandparents were Ukrainian immigrants.

ACAPS Briefing Note: Venezuela: Regional Update: 5 September 2018

The deepening political and socio-economic crisis in Venezuela has led to one of the biggest mass displacements in the history of South America. Although no consolidated figure for the region is available, all sources indicate that migration from Venezuela to neighbouring countries is drastically increasing. 117,300 Venezuelans filed asylum claims in the first half of 2018 alone, already more than the numbe r of asylum claims reported at the end of 2017 (113,438).

Many Venezuelans in host countries are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. Food, nutrition, health and WASH needs have been identified. Protection assistance is also crucial, including legal help with documentation in order to access healthcare and employment. Venezuelan migrants also face growing xenophobia from host communities, and are at risk of exploitation, trafficking, and SGBV.

As the crisis inside Venezuela continues to deteriorate, host countries are increasingly struggling to respond to the influx of Venezuelans. The rising number of people entering neighbouring countries is putting a strain on basic services, especially in border areas. Recent measures in several countries deter Venezuelans from entering, such as limiting admission to people with a passport, or enforcing quotas at the border.
