The 2-0 defeat against Racing was the trigger for the departure of Diego Dabove from San Lorenzo, who returned to play badly, made childish mistakes and was left out of the Professional League Cup when he had everything in his favor to go from wheel: if he won, tied or even if he lost by a goal, it was enough for him to reach the quarterfinals.

“I take a step to the side, I thank Marcelo Tinelli for the opportunity, but I have to take charge of the situation, decompress and step aside,” said Diego Dabove on leaving the locker room. San Lorenzo’s defeat to Racing in the Professional League Cup marked the end of the coach’s cycle in the Cyclone, which will now be replaced by the Cheek Romagnoli.

Pipi will take charge of the team in the next games, until the leadership hires a new coach. The first commitment will be next Wednesday when he faces Rosario Central, for the group stage of the Copa Sudamericana. There will be little action from the Cyclone in the remainder of this semester since, in addition to the local tournament, it was also eliminated in the Argentine Cup.

In Marcelo Tinelli’s head there is a clear idea that the next coach will be chosen by consensus. The first thing the president of the Cyclone will do is look for a new manager. The names that sound louder are those of Mauro Cetto, who already fulfilled that role in Rosario Central, and Nicolás Burdisso, with experience in Boca.

The priority will be to occupy that position and then choose the new DT. Nor do they rule out that if the results are consistent, Pipi Romagnoli may remain in office longer than expected.

How is San Lorenzo in the South American Cup

The Cyclone is last in Group A after the first three dates. He lost at home to Huachipato (0-1), fell on his visit to Central in Rosario (0-2) and tied with October 12 at Nuevo Gasómetro (1-1). He still has chances, because Chileans and Paraguayans lead with just 5 points, but the outlook is not encouraging.

He went away Tocalli

Dabove’s departure prompted the resignation of Hugo Tocalli, a member of the technical secretary, a few hours ago. The former coach, who worked in the lower divisions and has been making decisions for some time, decided not to continue in the position.

Tocalli was decisive during the transition between the departure of Monarriz and the arrival of Mariano Soso since, together with Romagnoli and Acosta, he took control of the team in the three games that ended with the conquest of 9 points. Amid the questions and the departure of the coach, Tocalli, who was also coordinator with Fernando Kuyumchoglu of youth divisions, decided not to continue with the club.

From tomorrow and until the appointment of the new coach, Leandro Romagnoli and Alberto Federico Acosta will lead the team in the game against Rosario Central for the Copa Sudamericana.
