Reinaldo Rueda Rivera (born April 16, 1957 in Cali) is a Colombian football manager who is in charge of the Ecuadorian national team.

Rueda's claim to fame came during his years as the Colombian Youth Coach. With the Colombian U-20 team, he finished 3rd in the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship. He also led the Colombian U-17 team to a 4th place finish that same year at the U-17 World Cup.

After an unfavorable start to 2006 World Cup Qualifying, (only 1 point after 5 games) the Colombian Football Federation promoted Rueda to Senior Coach. Colombia failed to qualify to the 2006 World Cup, but Rueda made a big impact. The team would have finished near last on the CONMEBOL qualification but ended up in 6th place. Honduras, under his direction, succeeded in gaining a place in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
