According to the main Argentine media, the former coach of Barcelona and the Mexican team has already informed the board of directors of the blue and gold team that he does not accept the offer to assume the position.
The reason for the ‘Tata’ refusal to direct in Argentina would be a family decision, they assured from the country of the ‘Albiceleste’.
Martino was the first choice of Juan Román Riquelme and the Boca Football Council to replace Ibarra, who was dismissed in the midst of a crisis of results and low performance, a few days before the debut in the 2023 Copa Libertadores.
In his cycle of less than nine months at the helm of Boca, the former winger led 36 games, with 20 wins, 7 draws and 9 losses, and won two titles, the 2022 Professional League and the Argentine Super Cup, a few weeks ago.
