Former Racing Club midfielder and media pundit Rubén Capria has become the new Atlanta manager.
Shortly after Mayor’s resignation, the media sportscaster for ESPN Argentina and former Racing Club and Chacarita midfielder Rubén “el Mago” Capria has become the new Atlanta manager for the transitional tournament.
This will be Capria’s first venture into football management. Now 44 years old, Capria has been dedicated to his TV work with ESPN Argentina, as well as other businesses since his retirement from first division football in 2007 at Peñarol (Uruguay).
Along for this new adventure, he will be joined by former teammate and striker José Luis Calderón, an idol at Racing Club and Estudiantes de La Plata, who had already been tempted by several teams to manage by himself alone. Also, he will be joined with Adrián González, 37 years old, who retired this season from professional football after playing in teams such as San Lorenzo and most recently Platense. In charge of fitness coaching he has signed in PF Marcelo Montero as well.
Capria’s a high stake for the Atlanta team as he hasn’t had previous experience in coaching or management. Up to the date the most experienced member of the team to be knowledgeable about ascenso categories effectively is AC Adrián Gonzalez, who has played for the last two years in Primera B for Platense.
