After leaving Porto Alegre International, Chacho will have his first experience directing in Europe. The Spanish team is in seventeenth place in the table.
It’s official now. Celta de Vigo of Spain announced through their social networks that the new coach of the club is Eduardo Coudet, who arranged a contract until 2022 and will have his first experience directing in European football.
Chacho has just resigned from the leadership of Internacional de Porto Alegre, which was at the top of the Brasileirao standings and was waiting to face Miguel Ángel Russo’s Boca for the second round of the Copa Libertadores.
Instead, the former technical director of Tijuana, Rosario Central and Racing must now face a completely different reality in the Old Continent. Is that Celta is seventeenth in LaLiga and only got seven points in nine dates, the product of a victory, four draws and four defeats.
In this way, his main objective in the short term will be not to descend from LaLiga, where the Argentines Diego Simeone, in Atlético de Madrid, and Jorge Almirón, in Elche, are also. In the event that Levante win their pending match, Celta may be in relegation places.
According to the cover letter issued by the club, Chacho “will arrive in Vigo in the next few days and will be accompanied by four assistants.”
The first commitment he must face is against Seville, which will play home this November 21 for the 10th date of the local tournament. On the other hand, the team led by Julen Lopetegui did not have a great start to the season either, since they are in twelfth position with ten units in seven games played.
On the other hand, it seems that Chacho already has his first reinforcement. This is Pol Fernández, whom he already directed during his time at Racing. The 29-year-old footballer did not have the best exit from Boca and this was communicated by the club: “In recent days the player communicated that he did not want to continue in the institution. For this reason, given the will expressed by the player, Boca will not make such a great purchase effort, so he has made the decision not to use the current option “.
As confirmed by the club, Coudet will be presented in the next few days at an official press conference as the new coach of the celestial team. In this way, he will return to the club after 17 years, after he wore the Celta shirt in the 2002/03 season (he played 14 games)
In his resume, an Argentine Super League and a Super League Champions Trophy stand out, both with Racing, which was champion of the local tournament after more than half a century. In addition, two sub-championships of the Argentine Cup (2014 and 2015) with Rosario Central.
