After the failed promotion bid, and after a year and a half in charge, Biggeri leaves Villa Crespo.
Anibal Biggeri has called it quits: The Atlanta manager, after the nil-nil draw against promoted side Flandria in Villa Crespo, has resigned to his position after the second tournament in which he has come close to promotion but has ultimately failed.
Atlanta has lost its chances to promotion in a closed and defensive game against Flandria, a team that’s difficult to beat (only 8 goals against in the last season) and in which the atlanta roster has failed to break the defence of the Orsi- Gomez managed team.
Yet, Biggeri’s stats are impressive nonetheless: he has a 61.4% effectivity in the 2016 season (19 games managed, 10 won, 5 draws and 4 losses) as well as a 66.6% effectivity in the 2015 season. Biggeri has resigned not so much because of the numbers but mainly because of being worn out after two campaigns were he and the team came close yet failed to get to the Nacional B tournament.
There has not been indication yet of who will replace him, although names have been drawn into the pool, such as Excursionistas’s “El Búfalo” Szeszurak, Almagro’s former manager Fernando Ruiz, Blas Giunta, Fenix’s Atilio Svampa among others.
