Who is Mariano Herrón, the new interim manager of Boca?


The Reserve coach will take charge of the first team after the departure of Ibarra and will lead on Saturday against Barracas Central.

Hugo Ibarra left Boca.

By decision of the leadership, this Tuesday the cycle of the former winger as DT of the first team came to an end.

Mauricio Serna

, a member of the

Football Council

, confirmed it

after 7:50 p.m.

And while the alternatives to face what comes next are evaluated, with the

Copa Libertadores

as a great objective beyond the

Professional League

and the

Argentine Cup


Mariano Herrón

will take charge on an interim basis.

He will momentarily leave the Reserve and take over.

His first match will be on Saturday against Barracas Central as a visitor, starting at 3:30 p.m.

And on April 6 they will debut in Venezuela against Monagas in the continental tournament.

People wonder who Herrón is and what his background is.

Without being linked to Boca as a player, he arrived at the club at the beginning of 2020 at the hands of

Juan Román Riquelme


He became part of the club's structure and was included, by Román's decision, in the coaching staffs of Miguel Russo, Sebastián Battaglia and for a few days at Ibarra until later establishing himself as DT of the Reserve (he replaced Hugo himself in internal rearrangement last year).

He obtained the League and the Champions Trophy there.

In the middle he also went through everything: some appreciated his silent work and his good relationship with the professional team.

Others considered him too close to the vice president and that, in moments of tension between the squad and the Football Council, took a toll on him.

"My gratitude to Román is because I am here (in Boca) thanks to him, it is reality. He invited me to be part of this project. I am also grateful to Miguel (Russo), who accepted that I work with him. But the main invitation was that of Román. We have faced each other many times when we were players. That game in which I made it a personal best (

Argentinos 1-1 Boca, in 1999, were teammates in Inferiors del Bicho in the 1978 category) was

remembered ), because we tied and it went quite well. But if Román had scored one of the two goals that hit the posts, no one would have remembered Mariano Herrón. They are anecdotes that remain: my relationship with him goes beyond those games and now we It's time to work together. We've known each other since we were 10, 11 years old, from the Inferiores de Argentinos"

, were the words of Herrón, 45, after consecrating himself last year in the Reserve.

In the Primera CT

he was champion along with Russo (Super League 19/20 and Maradona Cup 2020) and Battaglia (Argentine Cup 2021 and Professional League 2022).

And to further emphasize his good relationship with Riquelme, he had added some time ago: "I talk a lot about football with Román. Everyone

knows what he is passionate about in this sport. We exchange opinions, I listen to him and I learn."

Questions about his figure

: "There are always things to analyze. If I can continue, if not. I never felt internally questioned, which was what interested me. And then, if there are people who don't know me and judge me, I can't go out and deny everything that is said about me or my work. that is said is not on my account".

Work in Boca

: "I am very happy here in this club, the biggest in the world for me at least, and I am enjoying it a lot",

The role of the greatest and the reflection for the boys

: "Not all clubs have the possibility of having this impressive place that we have, where the boys see Marcos Rojo, Benedetto, Pol, Zambrano... Players with a lot of experience and an impressive professionalism that makes the boy feel close to being able to be there. As I always tell them, they have to watch and copy everything good that each one of them does. To Rojo, who was at Manchester and played two World Cups, You have to look at him. You have to look at Benedetto how he moves, how he defines...".
