The news attracted attention since it had been commenting for a long time that Tevez and Retegui had a project to work together and even on Monday they went to see Central before Velez.
The former coach of the men’s and women’s field hockey teams took over the impossibility of being “in the day to day” along with the Apache, but promised to advise and accompany him in his new role, sources from the Buenos Aires government assured.
El Chapa came to public office in January
Retegui, 52 years oldarrived at the civil service last January and “He is very committed to his work at the head of the Sports Secretariat”said CABA spokesmen.
The eventual landing in Rosario Central, which materialized his declared desire to work in the football environment, involved submitting his resignation to the head of government Horacio Rodríguez Larreta.
El Chapa fulfills his second experience in politics in the Sports area of the City after serving as a councilor for the Frente de Todos (2015-2019) in the Buenos Aires city of San Fernando, his place of origin.
“It is very difficult for him to be able to take care of Central 100% due to his commitment to his task in the City. He cannot do both. He loves Tevez, he is going to advise him, he is going to accompany him, but not being in the day to day”, specified the consulted sources.
Tevez expected to have him
Central generated last week one of the sports news of the year when it agreed the arrival of Carlos Tevez to the technical direction of the first team, hand in hand with Retegui and with the support of businessman Christian Bragarnik.
The Apache assumed this Tuesday the leadership of the “scoundrel” campus accompanied by the physical trainer Martín Traversi and his brothers Miguel, Diego and Adrián Tevez as collaborators.
Asked about Retegui’s situation, the former Boca player replied: “It’s part of this project, it’s in a situation where He has to step down from his original position, but he’s going to be with us.”
The Chapa Retegui is football coach received in 2019 and has a prestigious resume in hockey. He was coach of Los Leones in the conquest of the gold medal at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games and with Las Leonas he won the 2010 World Cup and the silver medal in Tokyo 2020.
