Fernando BATISTA has been named as the new coach of the Argentina U20 team.
It will all be up to BATISTA to lead the new generation of Argentina players. There were rumors that Pablo AIMAR, Lionel SCALONI or Lucas BERNARDI would manage the team but the official confirmation came on Wednesday that it would be BATISTA.
He has previously worked with San Lorenzo, Argentinos Juniors and was Claudio UBEDA’s assistant when UBEDA was coaching the U20 team.
Esteban SOLARI, Cristian PALANDELLA and Gustavo PINERO will be a part of the coaching staff. SOLARI would be his assistant, PALANDELLA as fitness coach and PINERO in charge of the goalkeepers.
He’ll manage the team at next month’s South American U20 tournament from the 17th of January until the 10th of February with a spot at next year’s U20 World Cup to be held in Poland to play for.
