The Argentine DT was not granted a provisional license and had to watch the game from the stands. His team fell 4-2 to Sevilla of Lucas Ocampos, Marcos Acuña (was injured) and Franco “Mudo” Vázquez (on the bench).
The Argentine Eduardo “Chacho” Coudet was unable to direct Celta de Vigo this afternoon from the bench at the Sánchez Pizjuán stadium, as he was unable to prove the five years of training that UEFA requires to train in Spain.
Above, his team fell to Sevilla, Julen Lopetegui, in a match with many goals (4-2), but which left Celta with good feelings despite the result. Munir, Escudero, En-Nesyri and Jules Koundé were the authors of the Sevilla goals. Iago Aspas and Nolito scored for Celta. Argentine Marcos Acuña and Aidoo were injured.
The Celta leaders tried to speed up the procedures so that he was granted a provisional license, conditional on Coudet ending the season with the Galician team, but it was impossible. So the goalkeeping coach, Nando Vila, and the physical trainer, Álex Andújar, were in the technical area of the Sevilla field. El Chacho had to watch the game from the stands and not on the bench of his new team …
Coudet, who replaces Óscar García Junyent, began his career as a coach in Rosario on January 1, 2015. In December 2016 he resigned, and only a month later took over at Tijuana in Mexico, which he managed until November of this year.
On December 17 he became a new coach of Racing Club, which he left in December 2019. His last adventure on the benches in South America was at Internacional de Porto Alegre, from which he split to sign for Celta.
In the current league championship there was already a similar case with his compatriot Jorge Almirón, signed by Elche after his promotion to La Liga Santander.
