Germán Adrián Ramón Burgos officially became Newell’s new coach. The «Mono», who comes from a long way of working as an assistant to Diego Simeone at Atlético Madrid, will have in Rosario his first experience in this position in the country. The 51-year-old former goalkeeper signed a contract until December 2021 with the option to renew for one more season. Next Tuesday he will start training the team on the evening shift and on Friday, against Unión, he will be on the bench of the Marcelo Bielsa stadium for the first time.
Burgos, who had his only coaching experience between 2009 and 2011 when he promoted Real Club Deportivo Carabanchel to the Third Division of Spain, will take over at the place left by Frank Darío Kudelka, who on Saturday led his last match in «Lepra», having agreed to his departure after 21 matches in office. The bad start this season – only added one point in five games – coupled with the lack of results in the Diego Armando Maradona Cup, were the reasons that triggered Kudelka’s departure, which was dismissed with a heavy 4-0 defeat to Defense and Justice.
