Claudio Úbeda ended his cycle as interim coach this Wednesday and from Thursday Fernando Gago would take the reins of the Racing Club squad to already be on the bench against Rosario Central.
Tomás Dávila reported in ESPN Soccer 12 that El Sifón said goodbye to the campus and thanked the professional staff member for these monthsl. The Reserve coach had to take over the first team in August this year, when the leadership decided to terminate Juan Antonio Pizzi from the contract.
The idea was that Úbeda would arrive, at least, until December. But the poor results and the performance of the Academy precipitated his departure. The coach will continue to work at the club.
While, Mariano Closs has already closed the agreement with Fernando Gago, historical Boca Juniors player, and who made his first weapons as a coach in Aldosivi, where he had a good start, especially due to his team’s play, but due to the poor results in the League Tournament, he decided to take a step towards cost after just 13 dates, with an effectiveness of just over 30%, in a total of 26 games.
Gago would already train the Racing team from Thursday and next Saturday, he would be on the bench against Rosario Central in Arroyito.
Racing won just one of the last 10 games, marching 14th in the League Tournament with 23 points. At the moment, it is last among those who qualify for CONMEBOL Sudamericana 2022 and 9 points of entry to the Copa Libertadores.
The Academy will visit Rosario Central on Saturday from 8:15 p.m.
