Independiente v Racing: Part 2

The thinking behind this blog was never to provide upto the minute news on everything Argentina/football. Although having posted a lengthy piece prior to yesterday's clasicó de Avellaneda, I thought I'd write a few lines on the aftermath. Independiente won 2-0 and it was as expected a case of loser gets booted. Juan Manuel Llop 'parted company' with Racing after 34 games and a total of 8 wins. The next candidates through the revolving door could be one of Simeone (returning), Basile or Pekerman amongst others. Simeone seems to be the fave at time of writing. So for now at least Santoro will continue to be the oldest coach in the Primera.

Hasta luego!
