Martín Lasarte will be the replacement of Reinaldo Rueda in the Chilean National Team: Martín Lasarte – International Football – Sports

The Chilean National Professional Soccer Association (ANFP) took his time choosing the replacement for Reinaldo Rueda, who left the position of national coach of that country to assume the command of Colombia.

The name chosen was a surprise and has a not very fortunate past for Colombian soccer: the chosen one is the Uruguayan coach Martín Lasarte.

Lasarte is 59 years old and in Chile he is well remembered for his time at the University of Chile, with which he won the League in 2014 and the Super Cup and the Cup of that country in 2015.

He was also a four-time champion with Nacional de Montevideo, won the title of the Spanish second division with Real Sociedad in 2010 and was champion with Al Ahly, from Egypt, in 2019.

Lasarte was a Millonarios coach.

On the other hand, his passage through Millonarios, in 2007, was not fortunate. He was barely nine games in charge of the team and had to leave after the team received two goals, from Quindío (6-1) and Deportivo Pasto (0-3).

He managed to lead the club in the first phase of the South American Cup, in which he left out Coronel Bolognesi, from Peru: he lost 0-1 at El Campín and won by the same score as a visitor, to advance in kicks from the penalty spot .

Lasarte will have his first experience as a national coach and his first challenge will be the double date of March: on the 25th he will face Paraguay, in Santiago, and on the 30th he will visit Ecuador, in Quito.
