Historic figures are the best options to replace Beccacece
By Tomas Croquevielle
The days of Sebastián Beccacece as coach of the soccer team Universidad de Chile, the second most popular and successful, are coming to an end. The lousy start of the Torneo de Apertura in the first season tournament of 2016 was quite far from expectations to when he arrived in January.
The tie 1-1 against Deportes Antofagasta ended the confidence that the fans and the board had with the coach. The majority of administration board, known as Azul Azul, is in favor to end the contract with Beccacece. The former assistant of Sampaoli, the coach that won the Copa Sudamericana in 2011, the first international tournament of the Universidad de Chile and got the Copa America in 2015 with the national football team of Chile.
Three names are being considered to replace Beccacece: Ronald Fuentes being the favorite. But he has a coaching commitment with Universidad de Concepcion until December. Thus in all likelihood preventing him as an option for this semester. Other candidates are Víctor Hugo Castañeada and Luis Musrri, who is currently the coach of Deportes La Serena since mid-2015, and has always been an option to lead the team.
It is expected that as the week progresses new names shall come to replace Beccacece.
