Friday: Merlo can’t halt Racing slump – all the action (video)


Mostaza Merlo has his work cut out at Racing

The return of Racing legend, Reinaldo ‘Mostaza’ Merlo could not change the current fortunes on the pitch as another limp performance in Avellaneda ended in a 1-0 defeat to Velez Sarsfield. Mauro Zarate’s first half goal was enough but it could have been more. Racing’s 2 points from the opening 12 matches is now the worst start to a season since 1939 and the supporters let Merlo know exactly what they thought of that. Another Manager with problems is Quilmes boss, Nelson Vivas. His misfiring side salvaged a 1-1 draw with Atletico Rafaela and when confronted by one of the upset fans, Vivas threw a punch and needed to be dragged away by police. The 1-1 draw might be his last as there are reports that he will resign from his post. And continuing the theme of crazy managers, Caruso Lombardi will be happier after watching Argentinos Juniors finally get back to winning ways, with a 1-0 win over Estudiantes in La Paternal. Daniel Villalva scored the only goal of the match. SEE ALL THE ACTION HERE….


Nelson Vivas loses his cool….
