With the presence of Carlos Tevez at the José Amalfitani, Vélez defeated Rosario Central 2-0 in one of the matches corresponding to the fourth round of the Professional Football League. In Rosario they are already preparing to welcome the new coach who will replace Leandro Somoza. His presentation is expected this Tuesday and his first training session ahead of what will be his debut on the substitute bench, next Friday against Gimnasia. In addition, who are the two footballers who will join a squad with which he will have to work hard to straighten the course of a very irregular team. On the other hand, there are Boca players that Apache would be interested in.
As for the match, Francisco Orellano put the 1 to 0 six minutes into the first half after a serious error in a low start by Gaspar Servio. The goalkeeper was complicated with the ball on his foot, he was pressured by Pratto and the striker only had to push it. The 2-0 came 38 minutes into the second half. The defender Damián Fernández headed in the small area to put definitive figures and thus the team led by Alexander Medina celebrated their first victory in the championship.
In addition, the clash between Vélez and Central had the presence of the VAR on two occasions. The first, a supposed hand of Lautaro Blanco, defender of Central, in the Vélez area. The other, an alleged infraction by Francisco Ortega on Luciano Ferreyra that the match referee Fernando Espinoza charged. Both plays were finally not charged after the review in the VAR.
Last Friday the Vice President Ricardo Carloni confirmed to the media that Carlos Tevez he was chosen by the club’s board of directors as the new coach of Rosario Central, despite the fact that there were divided opinions regarding the election. It is that, on the one hand, the arrival of the former Boca player was arranged and on the other hand, the president, Rodolfo Di Pollina, held talks with Pablo Vitamina Sánchez, a DT identified with the Scoundrel colors. The truth is Carlitos will be presented this Tuesday afternoon and then it will be part of the practice of the team that next Friday receives Gimnasia. Prior to that, he will have lunch with the team players.
Tevez, who announced his retirement at the beginning of the month, was present in a VIP box B 4 at the Vélez stadium, witnessing the defeat of his new team. Next to him was who will be part of his coaching staff: the world champion field hockey coach Carlos Retegui. El Chapa, for now, will have to resolve his departure from the position as Secretary of Sports of the City of Buenos Aires, a position he has held since January of this year.
As for the reinforcement, Rosario Central confirmed this Monday the first of them: Joseph Leudo, 28-year-old Colombian, who signed a contract with Central until December 2023. The coffee midfielder, last step for Patriotas de Boyacá, has been in Rosario for a few days, waiting for the resolution of who will be the coach in Rosario Central . With this resolved, he will be able to train from this Tuesday under Tevez’s orders.
On the other hand, Central would already have a goalkeeper closed. Is about Mark Diaz, an old acquaintance of the Apache in Boca, where they became friends and also share the patronage of a charity association. The goalkeeper has already terminated his contract with the Globe and passed the medical review. In the next few hours, Díaz would sign his contract at El Canalla.
But the list of names to reinforce the campus does not end there. Tevez is looking for more players than he knew in Boca and there are three names that are shuffled to get to the Scoundrel. The first of them is Jorman Campuzano. The central midfielder is not currently in Battaglia’s consideration, so the brand new DT would be interested in his arrival, although in recent days Boca has sought to renew his contract. Another is Marcelo Weigandt, who was already on loan at Gimnasia de La Plata and since his return could never establish himself in his position as right back; In addition, a serious injury left him relegated. the last one is Gaston Avila, that was already in Central’s plans since before Tevez became the coach. The 20-year-old defender emerged in Canalla and was later bought by Boca.
Another great wish of Carlos Tevez is to have Ramón Wanchope Ábila. The attacker, a close friend of the Apache and a former partner in the Xeneize, presses to leave Colón and arrive at Rosario Central. In any case, his departure from the Sabalero will not be easy because Colón paid 1,700,000 dollars for the pass of the attacker, in February of this year.
