Néstor Rapa resigns as Almagro’s manager

The Almagro manager has resigned after last night’s defeat against Villa San Carlos.

Néstor Rapa had been facing an irregular season and last night’s defeat against Villa San Carlos, one goal against, finished to seal the manager’s fate.

After his resignation, two candidates stand up: first of all, Omar Asad’s assistant manager Raúl “Pacha” Cardozo, a fierce midfielder that has played for Vélez Sarsfield up until 1994 in the very succesful Carlos Bianchi side that won the intercontinental Cup, and then also reputed manager Mario Finarolli, who has directed teams such as Nueva Chicago, and who has a good reputation within the club yet left the club in his previous managerial stint with the José Ingenieros team in a grudge against the Almagro board.

Rapa had been reassured in his position after the previous (tied) match against Sportivo Italiano, yet last night’s result has sealed Rapa’s fate. Almagro’s now the third to last team in the B zone table, having won 2 games, tied 2 games and lost 5 games.
