Astrada takes charge at Argentinos
Buenos Aires, Argentina (Sports Network) - Leo Astrada has been named the new manager of Argentinos Juniors after the resignation of former boss Nestor Gorosito following a car accident.
Gorosito was injured in an accident that will keep him in the hospital for the next few months, preventing him from continuing as manager of the team.
He turned in his resignation on Wednesday and the club has now turned to Astrada, a former manager at River Plate and Estudiantes.
Astrada last spent time in charge of Paraguayan outfit Cerro Porteno in 2011, and he will take charge beginning on Monday, with assistant coach Jorge Borelli leading the team for Saturday's game with Independiente.
Arg. Juniors has claimed one point from its first three games this season.
