Martino is Barcelona new coach
Barcelona has found their new coach....it's Gerardo Martino.
Unheard of him? Well, the man who had led Newell's Old Boys to the Argentinian Clausura title last season, has been appointed after it was announced on Friday that Vilanova was stepping down after a recurrence of his throat cancer.
"FC Barcelona have reached an agreement to appoint Gerardo Martino as the new coach of the football team for the next two seasons. This agreement is pending the drafting and signing of the contract," a club statement read.
Martino, who is also known as 'Tata', will become the fourth Argentine to take the reins at the Camp Nou, following in the footsteps of Roque Olsen, Helenio Herrera and Cesar Luis Menotti.
