This Wednesday, together with the brand new president Jorge Brito, Marcelo gallardo officially signed the contract extension with River until December 2022.
The “Doll” made his continuity official, which he had already announced after having become champion of the League Cup amidst the classic and resonant rumors that linked him to a possible departure to European football and this time even to the Uruguayan National Team after the interest shown by the AUF to tempt him to take over as a replacement for “Maestro” Tabárez.
Thus, the millionaire coach and idol will lead the team for the ninth consecutive year, consolidating a historic and widely winning process: Under his leadership, River won at the international level the Copa Sudamericana (2014), the Recopa Sudamericana (2015, 2016, 2019), the Copa Libertadores (2015, 2018) and the Suruga Bank (2015). At the local level, his cycle was less successful, but still virtuous: he won the Argentine Cup three times (2016, 2017, 2019), the Argentine Super Cup twice (2017, 2019), the new Champions Trophy in its only edition. (2021) and his pending account: the League Cup (2021).
