Carlos Tevez is the new coach of Independiente and will replace Ricardo Zielinski. The confirmation came on a day full of versions and the former Boca Juniors striker prevailed over Walter Erviti. Apache himself confirmed it on ESPN F10, in dialogue with Gustavo López. “Yes, I am the new coach of Independiente,” said the former attacker for Corinthians, West Ham United, Manchester City, Manchester United, Juventus and China’s Shanghai Shenhua.

This Tuesday morning, Tevez will appear at the club’s main headquarters at Avenida Miter 470 to sign the contract, while in the afternoon he will lead the first practice session with his new managers. He will have the hard challenge of the permanence of Red, who after the results of the first date of the League Cup was left in an eventual triple tiebreaker with Huracán and Colón de Santa Fe, who beat him on Saturday 1-0 in Avellaneda.

A meeting on the afternoon of this Monday was key to be able to close the arrival in office. Tevez met personally with the president, Néstor Grindetti, and with two other members of the technical secretariat: Jorge Damiani and Carlos Montaña. In that conclave in a hotel in Puerto Madero, the leaders were convinced by the proposal made by the idol of Boca Juniors.

The managers ended up being convinced by Carlos’s few economic claims. Likewise, it was established that in case of meeting the objective of keeping the team in the highest category, in December they would speak again to analyze a possible renewal for 2024.

Tevez proposed a youth promotion project to them, many of them are already playing in the first team due to emergencies, but he also asked them to add experience in the face of the club’s complicated present. Among them Domingo Blanco, who is in the Dnipro of Ukraine, a country that is involved in the war problems resulting from the Russian invasion. The leadership would already have everything agreed with the steering wheel as the Russian Zielinski had requested it.

“Confirmed. They have already communicated it to Carlitos ”, they indicated on ESPN F10, before having the official voice of Apache. In said program they also added that there are two players who could join because they would be seduced by the presence of Tevez. These are two former Boca Juniors defenders, Carlos Izquierdoz and Emmanuel Mas. Cali, even, was also tempted by the express request of the Russian Zielinski but rejected the offer. Will he change his position with his friend Tevez in office?

In his first experience as a strategist at Rosario Central, Tevez led from July to November 2022. His total numbers yielded 24 games where he reaped six wins, ten draws and eight losses. Beyond the coaching staff he had at El Canalla, it is a possibility that Hermes Desio (former Red player and trained at the club) is part of his work team.

Independiente’s situation is complicated in the fight for permanence because it will face direct rivals in the search to maintain the category. Three finals are coming for the Avellaneda team. Tevez’s debut as DT del Rojo will be next Sunday at home against Vélez, this Saturday from 7:15 p.m. On Saturday, September 2, he will open the third date and from 3:00 p.m. he will visit Gymnastics in La Plata and then he will have a crucial duel at home against Huracán (with a day and time to be confirmed).
