Last champion Argentinos has new coach
Argentinos, winner of last Clausura after 25 years without winning a championship, has confirmed that Pedro Troglio will be the new coach of the team next season.
Troglio, 44 years old, is an ex River, Lazio and Gimnasia player who played the 1990 World Cup for Argentina.
In the last few years he coached Gimnasia, taking them to Copa Libertadores 2007. After a short era with bad results coaching Independiente, he was hired by Paraguay's Cerro Porteño where he was champion in 2009.
With some players leaving the team after their contracts expired and 2 tournaments to play in the next semester (Apertura and Copa Sudamericana), he won't have an easy job with Argentinos Juniors to replace Claudio Borghi, who didn't renew his contract to sign with Boca.
