The ups and downs of Marcelo Tinelli and a license that increases the uncertainty of a San Lorenzo aimless in football and with numbers in red


Already without the man who a year and a half ago had been elected as president - at least until his cycle on TV ends, the Boedo club will have to wipe the slate clean to regain peace.

The news that resounded loudly throughout Argentine football on Friday morning did not cause much surprise in the bowels of San Lorenzo. The version of

a license request

by president Marcelo Tinelli had been resounding through the halls of the club since last month. However, around the television host they were in charge of firmly denying the rumors that the leader himself ended up confirming with the announcement on his social networks. It is

the third opportunity that he decides to distance himself since he is a Barça leader

, this time at a time that is not very wise due to the complex panorama facing the Cyclone.

How will San Lorenzo continue internally in this context of crisis: outside of all the competitions that it played, without a coach, with an economy in the red and now without the president who in December 2019 won by 80 percent of the votes?

"I have made a difficult, painful and necessary decision: to request a license from my position as President of the San Lorenzo de Almagro Athletic Club with which the members have honored me in the 2019 election,"

Tinelli reported in a lengthy statement in which argued that his program, which will premiere next Monday on the screen of El Trece, will demand between

"10 and 12 hours a day of work"

and that this will prevent him from dedicating himself fully to the Boedo institution at the same time that he admitted the bad situation that the Cyclone is going through and that prefers

"to accept reality with humility and leave space for others to try to overcome this bad moment that hurts us all

Didn't you know before running for president that your job would be a barrier to dedicating yourself to the club of your love?

Tinelli knew that this problem could be presented to him and at first he was not convinced to launch himself.

In fact, the determination to go to the head of the ruling party list was taken in the final stretch of its presentation after having a meeting with Alberto Fernández, one of those who encouraged him to take over from Matías Lammens. to dedicate himself to national politics.

Until that moment,

Horacio Arreceygor

(general secretary of the Argentine Television Union), was the one chosen to occupy the highest position, which he will now have to carry out provisionally in view of the sudden departure from Tinelli.

Its ups and downs became common in recent years.

The first license was requested from his position as vice president in 2014, during the Lammens administration.

It was for nine months, but it lasted much less than that since MT began to reappear when the team led by Edgardo Bauza marched firmly towards the most important title in the history of San Lorenzo that he ended up winning: the Copa Libertadores that year.

In April 2017, Tinelli came back formally, but for 18 months, accusing personal problems.

Little by little he was reestablishing contact with the club from basketball.

And in 2019 he got fully into football when Lammens had his sights on the campaign for head of the Buenos Aires government.

A year and four months after taking office, the Argentine TV showman again chose to step aside momentarily.

When will he return?

it is presumed that once the program ends, it will regain its functions.

Meanwhile, he will remain as president of the Professional Football League since he does not demand a dizzying day to day and he knew how to delegate several issues.

In San Lorenzo, the discontent of the fans grew hand in hand with the frustrations of Diego Dabove's team (he resigned after losing to Racing).

And the main target of the fights was Tinelli, who days before had denounced threats towards him and his family from the fans.

The constant criticism eroded it further.

And now? The president has been preparing the ground to come in recent weeks, despite the fact that - although no one acknowledges it publicly - his determination to withdraw did not cause sympathy among his peers, on the contrary. At the same meeting of the Board of Directors in which

the 2019-2020 balance

was approved

, which yielded a liability of some 56 million dollars

(the opposition denounced irregularities and lack of information for its treatment), it appointed a new executive Football Council to position of Carlos Rosales, current treasurer.

Rosales is the owner of Garbarino and recently acquired the group that owns Radio Continental.

This businessman has been gaining ground within the club since the beginning of this year and will be one of those who will make the decisions about hiring a new manager and the future coach, together with Arreceygor, secretary Miguel Mastrosimone and Lammens (2nd vice president), who will once again have a leading role in the daily life of the

The current Minister of Tourism and Sports was away from the blue and red club since he took office as an official of Kirchnerism.

In the last year and a half, little and nothing had to do with the daily determinations

. But now, after the license of the one who seconded him at the time for 8 years, he will return to take the reins internally with the intention of doing something similar to what they had to do in 2012 when the team was fighting the Promotion and the numbers were also worrying.

Reordering the economy, electing a serious sports director (Nicolás Burdisso or Mauro Cetto?) To straighten out the painful footballing present and achieve that the Rezoning Law is approved once and for all to continue advancing in the Vuelta a Boedo are the premises that The Board of Directors is facing a very complicated context, no longer with the presence of Marcelo Tinelli.
