Madelón, closer to San Lorenzo
After Américo Gallego turned down the offer to coach San Lorenzo, the club’s director board met Leonardo Madelón and reached an agreement.
Madelón, former player of the club between 1982 and 88, talked with the president Carlos Abdo and has reached a pre-agreement.
The former midfielder was the second option, but after Gallego turned down the proposal, the board turned to him.
Madelón, 48-years-old, has a large career as a coach, but he was coaching Rosario Central when it was relegated, and left Quilmes in a similar position.
San Lorenzo was left without a coach after Omar Asad was fired due to the bad performance of team in the last tournament.
Currently, the team is in the relegation zone and needs to rapidly add some points to leave this position.
