Without a doubt, Guillermo Barros Schelotto's passing as coach of the Los Angeles Galaxy will be easy to forget. He arrived with high aspirations, a high salary of 500 thousand dollars a year for a position whose monthly average is 32 thousand dollars, he hired Zlatan Ibrahimovic with the sole objective of being able to be MLS champion and, despite having the Swede, they were quickly eliminated in the playoffs. And the following season, without the European striker who returned to Milan and who was completely atypical due to the coronavirus pandemic, the authorities of the Californian franchise decided to fire him due to the poor results recorded.
With this curriculum, in the last two years of work, several South American teams were interested in hiring him. First it was Palmeiras, brand new champion of the Copa Libertadores, but he decided to do so because of the economic pretentions of the Twin. Then it was the turn of Sao Paulo, who finally opted for Hernán Crespo. Santos, also from Brazil, asked about the conditions, but signed Ariel Holan.
And in recent days, after Holan's departure from the Catholic University of Chile became official, the Cruzado cast contacted Barros Schelotto's environment to send him a formal offer to hire him as a coach. Knowing that he is a high-profile technician, the U approached him a salary proposal that is around 250 thousand dollars a year.
Juan Pablo Vojvoda, current strategist at Unión La Calera - Chile's runner-up - who led Defense and Justice would also be close to the institution. Finally, the other one on the list of José María Buljubasich, the club's Sporting Director, is Antonio Mohamed. El Turco was in Monterrey, where he left last year. However, beyond the variants and possibilities, the 47-year-old former striker seems to be the candidate they most desire from the three-time Chilean champion, although Radio Agricultura reported that his arrival would not be easy.
This is how Barros Schelotto did in LA Galaxy
After losing the final of the 2018 Copa Libertadores with Bocaagainst River in the memorable match played at the Santiago Bernabéu, Barros Schelotto left Xeneize and signed a contract with the Californian franchise. During the 53 games he was in charge, he only won 21, lost 26 and drew 6. Very weak numbers for an elite coach.
