Micolta also had a stint in Portugal with Maritimo from 2014-2015 before making a move to Independiente Medellin and then Mexico. The El Charco, Colombia native will look to come back strong after an unmemorable stint in Mexico and help one of the biggest teams in the Liga Aguila.
“El Cocodrillo” is a speedy player that can also be very versatile as he has played as a winger, full-back and attacking midfielder. Micolta will likely be used as a winger for America de Cali to try and add a spark to the offense going forward.
