He will continue to coach Hispano Americano in the National League but will replace Sergio Hernández, who went to Zaragoza from Spain and would return for the Olympics.
For regulatory reasons, the hiring of Sergio Hernández by Zaragoza to lead in the ACB League in Spain left the basketball team without a coach. It happens that the European tournament does not allow a coach lead a team and a selected one. Therefore, the Argentine Confederation had to look for a replacement at least until Sheep terminate your contract with your new club. And the chosen one is one of his assistants: Gabriel Piccato.
In Argentina, the regulations do not allow a coach to exercise the position in a club and in the selected one. For this reason, the CABB asked the Club Association to exceptionally agree to modify the article that indicates it.
Then, Piccato will be able to continue directing Hispano Americano in the National League and be the coach of the world runner-up team. In this way, the Mystical will direct the qualification windows to Americup 2021 at the end of this month (against Chile and Colombia in Obras Sanitarias) and in February of next year.
“It is always a desire to reach places of excellence like this one and I feel that it is a reward for so many years of effort and work,” said the chosen one, champion with Boca de la Liga 2007, as reproduced by the official site of the CABB.
Now, he will be the head of the technical staff that will continue to be made up of those who accompanied him as Hernández’s slopes: Silvio Santander, Maximiliano Seigorman Y Juan Gatti.
“We understand that giving continuity to Hernández’s coaching staff was the right thing to do for this moment,” he said. Fabian Borro, head of the CABB, clarifying that he expects, for the Tokyo Olympic Games to take place next year, the return of who was the coach of the last five years and won the silver medal in China 2019.
“Gabriel is a wide connoisseur of this process and its players, he has a lot of experience and a proven ability. He is a silent worker who has widely earned this privileged place”, he stated Andres Pelussi, the sports director of the Confederation.
