While this Saturday the debit of the interim coach of the University of Chile, Sebastián Miranda, is expected, the leadership of the university team is looking for the technical director who will definitively command the team, with the mission of escaping from the relegation places.
The turns are the ones that leave, says an old popular adage. And an Argentine coach who, at 47 years old, directed in the lower divisions of River Plate, in the promotion of Ecuador and Chile, who was champion in Bolivia and had a last experience in the First Division of Peru, knows it well.
His name is César Vigevani and, by storm, he hopes to make a profit. In dialogue with Redgol, the technical director who commanded Unión San Felipe, Cobreloa and Huachipato confirms a first rapprochement with Universidad de Chile. And he can not of the emotion.
“The truth is that I found out today (Wednesday) and it makes me proud that my name sounds. In addition, it is an internal satisfaction that it has occurred, because we know what the U of Chile represents, which is going through a complicated situation, but it does not stop being the dream of any trainer”, explained.
Things are not calm in the blue team, which on this day notified the departure of its sports director, Luis Roggiero, and will have to reorganize its organization chart before going for the definition of the coach who will replace the also dismissed Santiago Escobar from the Cup Chile and the second round of the National Championship.
For this reason, Vigevani distances himself and hopes that the facts will take shape in his return to Chilean football, this time with the U. “I know that my name is there and that there were contacts with my agent. That’s all I know, frankly. I let it flow because we know what football is like,” the strategist pointed out.
He was a youth player at River Plate until injuries took him out at a very young age. He took the coaching course with Diego Simeone, Juan José Borrelli, Diego Cocca, Néstor Fabbri and Fernando Gamboa. He also directed Erik Lamela in the bottom of the millionaire cast, before trying his luck outside of Argentina.
That is why he has faith in the possibility of the U. “Not long ago something similar happened to me with Católica, when I was working in Bolívar. It is a source of pride that one can be at a table in those clubs, in their folder,” Vigevani values.
But his caution doesn’t last long. The trans-Andean only wants to direct again after two years away from the benches and is excited about the option of the Romantic Traveler. “Who is not going to be seduced, it happened to me directing in Chile, in Cobreloa, once I had a personal approach with the U, which did not happen for other reasons, but honestly for me it is a satisfaction” sentence.
