Serge Lippi, historical coach of Sarmiento de Junín, died in the last hours after fighting for a long time against a serious illness. The DT, who was 65 years old, had three steps through the Buenos Aires institution, among which the promotion to the First Division in 2014 stands out.
“We deeply regret the death of Sergio Lippi, who achieved two promotions in our institution as DT. We accompany family and friends in this difficult time. See you always, teacher,” Sarmiento posted on his official Twitter account.
Lippi, who died at 65 after a long illness, was a player for Jorge Newbery and Mariano Moreno from Junín, his hometown. His first steps in a coaching staff were taken together with Héctor Rivoira, in the role of field assistant.
In 2008 he took over for the first time as Sarmiento’s DT, in the Metropolitan B. The great rise of the Junín team materialized years later in the National B (2012) and the first division (2014), with Lippi as a mentor. Hence, the fans of “green” assume a deep regret and keep a pleasant and immense respect for his memory.
Lippi also managed Douglas Haig de Pergamino, where he was promoted to the Torneo Argentino A (2010); to Crucero del Norte de Misiones; Olympus of Bahía Blanca; and Board of Trustees of Entre Ríos, among others.
