Pedro Troglio, former coach of the University of Sports, would be the new technical director of San Lorenzo de Almagro to replace Paolo Montero thanks to his good performance at the helm of Olimpia of Honduras, according to information from TyC Sports of Argentina.
As reported by the aforementioned media, the Argentine strategist would have been chosen over Leandro Romagnoli, who was the other candidate and even had contact with Matías Lammens and Marcelo Tinelli.
TyC Sports said that Troglio would sign a bond for one season and will have the tough goal of lifting a team that has financial problems. It should be remembered that the last time the ‘Cyclone’ lifted a trophy was in the 2014 Copa Libertadores.
The ex-footballer will return as a coach to Argentina after directing Gimnasia and Esgrima La Plata. The fans of that club consider him an idol and in addition, in 2018 he was a finalist in the Argentine Cup under the command of the ‘Lobos’.

In mid-2019, the coach arrived to put on the ‘Albos’ diver and led his team to glory in the 19-20 Apertura Tournament. In a short time, the strategist exploited the best qualities of his team and this was reflected in the following three titles: Apertura 20-21, Clausura 20-21 and Apertura 21-22.
Since his arrival at the club, Pedro Troglio has led 101 games, winning 66 of them, drawing another 21 and only losing 14 times (72% effective). In addition, the DT helped the institution to be a protagonist at the continental level, both in the Concacaf League (semifinals), and in the Concachampions.
