The former Independiente technician, Ariel Holan resigned from his position as technical director of Santos de Brasil, after a bad run of results, according to what the president of the club, Andres Rueda, announced on Monday. This happens in the prelude to the crossing by CONMEBOL Libertadores with Boca Juniors.
The 60-year-old Argentine, who had signed a 3-year contract with the club, assumed the reins of Santos last February after the departure of Alexi Stival ‘Cuca’ and the day before he announced his departure to the board after the defeat fitted against Corinthians for the São Paulo regional championship.
The coach will leave the “Peixe” after 12 games, in which he scored four wins, three draws and five losses.
It is still doubtful who will be on the Santos bench, tomorrow Tuesday, in the match against Argentine Boca Juniors for the group stage of the Copa Libertadores.
Before immersing himself in the world of soccer, the Argentine coach was a field hockey coach and won a bronze medal with the Uruguayan team at the Pan American Games in Santo Domingo in 2003.
Later, he made the leap to football, a discipline in which he achieved his greatest achievement in 2017, when he won the Copa Sudamericana at the controls of the Argentine Independiente. Before, in 2015, he directed Defense and Justice, also from his country.
His last team before joining Santos was Universidad Católica, with which he won the Chilean championship last year.
