Mexico arrived in 1974 to play with the emeralds of the lion, where he was three seasons. His good level and leadership drew the attention of Miguel Gómez Collado, who was going to take the striped, however, the manager passed to the Tigers, which made Batocletti out to play with the auriazules. The university squad arrived in 1977 and was until he retired in 1984, achieving two league titles, the first championships in the city. There were other times, now there is more comfort, so I value the two titles very much, because to leave champion in the time that we had to play us as a team of the province, he snored the comb (sic), were camionazos and nothing to do with the trucks now , it was 12 or 14 hours of trucking. Now you play at 12:00 in Mexico and at 5 pm you’re in Monterrey, “he said to COURT just April 30.
“We knew how to profit, within the scarcity we learned to value and I think that is the merit.” His career as a technician began in Tigres, first as Emergent in 1979, 1980 and 1986, then began in basic forces with the Tigrillos, which later became the U, first A, from 1994 to 1996. As head of the first team was in two stages : One from 1998 to 1999, and another as emerging in the opening 2005, where he was minutes away from eliminating the striped in the Semifinal, which was defined with a goal of tip by Guillermo Franco in the agony of mourning.

He emerged in Racing and came to Mexico to play with Leon, but fate took him to Tigers and became a LEGEND ⚽️ RIP Osvaldo Batocletti, a huge central defender and captain. As a player it raised the titles of the 78 and 82 with those of the UANL until always Bato! — Sports crier (@pregonero_depor)

He was also the technical director of women’s Tigers since birth in the opening 2017 and closing 2018, achieving the title in the second, and then leave the position to attend to health problems derived from the cancer he suffered.
