Independiente: Monzón took over as interim, but knows that a great chance is at stake


After Stillitano's departure, the historic Moncho gives air to the leaders while they are looking for DT. Martino and Holan already gave the no. If you win, will you still lead the team?

The cloudy morning in Villa Domínico was a good match with the downhearted mood of the


squad .

It was a Monday of goodbyes, on the one hand, and of presentations, on the other.


Leandro Stillitano

came by to say goodbye to his ex-directed.

And then Pedro Monzón took over his interim position, while the leadership looks for a coach.

However, Moncho knows that this Sunday in the match for the Copa Argentina, his great chance to continue leading the team can begin to be played.

Stillitano, as he had expressed in a press conference after the draw with Colón, had the energy to continue, but after a talk with the president Fabián Doman and the sports director, Pablo Cavallero, it was decided to put an end to his brief cycle.

The outgoing DT thanked the players for their willingness to work in these three months and closed his cycle.

Immediately, Monzón led his first practice as provisional coach.

El Moncho, who was in charge of the Reserve, made a brief introduction to the group of soccer players and proposed a light rehearsal with the idea of ​​starting to intensify from this Tuesday.

Pedro Monzón had already temporarily directed the Falcioni Cycle due to the absence of DT.

Monzón's premise will be to correct the defensive problems that Independiente has been suffering without a solution.

From behind to forward he plans to give greater security to a team with no football direction.

And, although he is aware that Doman and company have started the search for a new coach, he also knows that

a victory against Ciudad de Bolívar for the Argentine Cup this Sunday will boost his chances of staying in charge


It is that, as


was able to find out, internally no one dares to rule out that in the absence of a firm candidate in sight they can keep Moncho at least until mid-year, if a football order is achieved and the results are straightened.

Doman heard the first "no's."

They were difficult figures like Tata Martino and Ariel Holan.

Gustavo Alfaro did not completely close the door, although they know that his arrival is very complicated since he prioritizes continuing abroad.

The same goes for Antonio Mohamed, an old acquaintance of the house.

Pablo Guede is one of the names that interest in Red.

Pablo Guede is one of the names that sounds the most at these times in the bowels of the Devil.

He is without a club and his profile likes him, formal contacts are expected soon.

One who joined the list of candidates is Ricardo Zielinski, who was dismissed from Nacional de Uruguay.

For his part, Monzón plays his token.

Fernando Cinto and


Pérez will be his collaborators, Facundo Carrizo is the physical trainer and Damián Albil will continue as the goalkeeping coach.

Depicting the spirit and physical appearance of the players will be the priorities this week.

Based on that, he will diagram the formation for Sunday.

A victory could be the boost needed to start clearing the storm clouds and changing the weather over Avellaneda.
