What was an open secret since Saturday night, after the defeat in the classic against Racing, became official in the early hours of Sunday: Diego Monarriz stopped being the coach of San Lorenzo . And the race for succession has already started.
There are three candidates hovering in the head of Marcelo Tinelli, president of Boedo's club. The main one is Pablo Guede, an old acquaintance of the house, who was in charge of the team in 2016. And Mauricio Pellegrino and Néstor Gorosito, who were about to fix after the departure of Juan Antonio Pizzi.
In the case of advancing the negotiations for Guede it will be a rematch for those who started their career as a footballer in Deportivo Español. He did badly in the international arena, but he starred in a good campaign in the local tournament, where he was runner-up after losing the final of the First Division Championship with Lanús.
Its cycle was exhausted due to the hard defeat against Garnet and the differences with some referents of the squad. That's how he left office to leave for Colo Colo de Chile (2016-2018) where he began to rebuild his career. He later had an experience in Saudi Arabia as DT of Al-Ahli and is currently in the bank of Monarcas de Morelia, team of the First Division of Mexican football.
Pellegrino, meanwhile, has no past in San Lorenzo. Neither as a player nor as a coach. He began his career as a DT in the bank of Valencia and later returned to Argentina to lead students and later to Independiente -he rang to take office before Lucas Pusineri, but gave up on considering the Red squad uncompetitive-.
After passing through Avellaneda he returned to Europe to take charge of Deportivo Alavés. From there he went to Southampton, in the competitive Premier League, and then jumped to Leganes, which was his last experience.
The case of Gorosito is better known. Pipo , one of the institution's great idols, has just resigned as DT Tigre in the First National. Months ago he was about to make his arrival at the Cyclone , but the negotiations ran aground and finally the Board of Directors, still headed by Matías Lammens, was inclined to formalize the internato de Monarriz. He has a long career as a trainer, which includes a passage through San Lorenzo there between 2003 and 2004.
And Monarriz? Already without a place in front of the professional team and worn by the pulls with some members of the team, Tinelli and company will seek to find a place in the structure of the lower divisions of the club, where he worked until he took the reins of the first team.
