San Lorenzo de Almagro officially announced the hiring of Pedro Troglio as the new coach of his first team, a position that had been vacant since the departure of Uruguayan Paolo Montero and was temporarily occupied by Diego Monarriz.
Troglio, who has just won a four-time championship with Olimpia of Honduras, ended up being chosen after the Barça leaders failed in their attempt to hire Hernán Crespo, first, and Alexander “Cacique” Medina, later.
There was also a refusal from the institution’s idol, Leandro Pipi Romagnoli, whom the club wanted to impose on the physical trainer Alejandro Kohan within its coaching staff.
“After meeting with President Horacio Arreceygor and manager Mauro Cetto, and thanks to the excellent predisposition of the Olimpia club, Pedro Troglio agreed to his arrival in San Lorenzo. In the coming days, the DT will be signing his contract until December 2022 ”, the Boedo club officially reported.
And on his official website he presented it this way: “He is passionate about football. And at 56 years old, already with a long history in this environment, with unique experiences (playing a World Cup together with Diego Maradona, for example) and the same desire as always, Pedro Troglio arrives in San Lorenzo de Almagro ”.
“After meeting with Arreceygor and Cetto the terms of their arrival were agreed. The directors Miguel Mastrosimone and Claudio Lantarón were also present. Therefore, in the next few days Troglio will sign the contract that binds him as coach of the Cyclone until December 2022. The squad, which will return to work on Tuesday, January 4 at the Ciudad Deportiva, awaits him with great expectation. Many successes, Pedro! ”.
“Welcome to San Lorenzo! And that you can also celebrate many achievements with this Club, with which you will surely soon feel identified ”, he closed.
“Troglio is a coach with a great career and we are very happy with his arrival in San Lorenzo,” said Arreceygor.
“We are very excited about the hiring of Pedro, due to his great experience, the personality he has and the values he transmits. He is the ideal person to face all the challenges that will come in 2022 ”, added Cetto.
The former technical director of Independiente, Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, Villa Dálmine, Godoy Cruz de Mendoza, Argentinos Juniors and Tigre, among others, had met in the last hours with the Minister of Tourism and Sports, Matías Lammens (former president of the “Cyclone”), and agreed on the terms of the contract.
Lammens’ role these days is important because although he was not in the last year, due to his role as a public official, as second vice president he was in charge of obtaining the funds to pay part of the debt to Palestino de Chile and to raise different inhibitions and demands such as those of Yeison Gordillo and Jalil Elías, both current players.
The position of DT of San Lorenzo, and beyond the interim position of Diego Monarriz (in the final eight days), was vacant since the 17th date of the recent Professional Football League tournament, when the Uruguayan Montero resigned after the fall to Lanús by 3 to 1 in the New Gasometer.
Monarriz had the trouble of debuting with a fall in the classic against Huracán, 2 to 1 on matchday 18 at Tomás A. Ducó.
The coaching staff will be made up of Gustavo Reggi (field assistant) and Pablo Martín (physical trainer). Thus, Troglio will fulfill one of his wishes to return to work as one of the Big Five, after leading Independiente in the 2007/08 season, where he led 26 games (11 wins, 5 draws and 10 losses).
For next season, San Lorenzo will only play local tournaments (LPF and Copa Argentina, in which it will debut with Racing de Córdoba), because the poor campaign carried out this year prevented it from qualifying for international competitions.
