Argentine football, a crusher of coaches: another 3 left

Argentine soccer is a true coach shredder. In just nine dates of the Professional League, six coaches left their positions as a result of poor results.

Only this weekend the casualties of Leandro Martini-Mariano Messera in Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, Gustavo Coleoni in Central Córdoba and Sebastián Méndez in Godoy Cruz were known.

The departure of Martini-Messera came after the goalless draw against Huracán. Four matches without managing to add three and just two victories throughout the contest left them without credit. The board of directors met and understood that the best thing was to bet on another project. At this time, in the Lobo de La Plata the name of Pipo Gorosito sounds strong.

Gustavo Coleoni decided to leave his post at Central Córdoba after losing 4-2 against Rosario Central in Santiago del Estero. So far in the championship, he barely managed to win a game and scored three points out of the last 18.

Finally, on Sunday night the resignation of the ‘Gallego’ Méndez was known in Godoy Cruz. He had had a good start to the championship, but as the matches went by he had a fall and it was difficult for him to overcome the situation. The 3-0 loss to Velez was the knockout blow and after the match he communicated to the players his decision to leave.

Those mentioned join Miguel Ángel Russo (Boca), Juan Antonio Pizzi (Racing) and Sergio Rondina (Arsenal), who had left their positions in the past dates, even when this season there are no stipulated relegations in the top category.
