Diego dabove became the new coach of Banfield, in the middle of a very bad football moment for the Drill.
Dabove signed a contract until December 2022 and thus became the replacement for Javier Sanguinetti, who left the club by mutual agreement due to the poor results of the team.
The brand new coach returns to direct in Argentina after his bad experience at Bahía de Brasil, from where he was fired after 6 games (he only managed to win one).
In the country he started as DT in Godoy Cruz and had a short cycle in San Lorenzo. His great performance was achieved with Argentinos Juniors, something that he will try to repeat at Banfield.
This Tuesday he will conduct his first training session ahead of his debut on Saturday against Vélez Sarsfield, on date 19 of the League Tournament.
The former goalkeeper, who toured the sports field this Monday with the club’s president, Eduardo Spinosa, will have the challenge of directing a team that already has a place won in the Copa Sudamericana 2022.
After having reached the final of the Diego Armando Maradona 2020 Cup, in which he lost to Boca on penalties in San Juan, Banfield cannot lift his head, he has only won one match of the last 15 games played and is in the penultimate table stand.
