Juan Antonio Pizzi is the new coach of Chile
Chile has a new coach and returns to Argentina. As it was Marcelo Bielsa, who arrived in 2007, just as it was Marcelo Borghi (although nationalized Chilean was Buenos Aires natural), and like it was Jorge Sampaoli, the last to leave and the way and all of you they know, after leading the national team to the top.
Chile now advocates Juan Antonio Pizzi, a technician we all know well. Pizzi triumphed as a player in our country and even got to defend the colors of the Spanish team, although coach did not fare so well in his brief spell with Valencia. He served more or less the agreed upon arrival, but went out the back door with the arrival of Lim and Mendes.
Juan Antonio Pizzi now faces a new challenge: to take command of which is now the best selection of South America, above Argentina and Brazil, and to forget or at least maintain the same successful line was set to Sampaoli . Although the now former coach went wrong and should become a villain for the fans, their successes are still there and that it will hardly forget the fans.
The first choices were handled ANFP Berizzo and Pellegrini, but beyond that the possibility or not provided, both had a problem: contract until June and no intention to leave earlier. Juan Antonio Pizzi is not that he was without a team, and then led the Lion of Mexico, but there was no provision that would curb its output and even in his club have not put obstacles to take this new path.
Connoisseur of Chilean soccer, as addressed Santiago Morning and Universidad Catolica (with whom he won the league title in 2010), Pizzi signature until World Russia 2018 . Prior to that appointment, for which the Chilean team has yet to make a classification , Chile will have to defend their status as champions of America in the Centenary Copa America and the 2017 Confederations Cup.
