Argentina: Boca Juniors name Gustavo Alfaro as new boss

Gustavo Alfaro gave his first press conference as the new manager of Boca Juniors in Buenos Aires on Wednesday. The 56-year-old Argentine coach said he would relish the challenge of managing one of the biggest clubs in South American football. «With Boca, there is no purgatory. It's heaven or hell. You're either champion or nothing,» Alfaro told journalists. «For us as coaches, that's a... Еще silver bullet. And not everyone has a silver bullet. I want to make this silver bullet count.» Alfaro replaces Guillermo Barros Schelotto, who left the club last month after losing to arch rivals River Plate in the final of the Copa Libertadores. Boca president Daniel Angelici — who spoke alongside the new coach — tried and failed to have River disqualified from the tournament, after the second leg was postponed due to an attack on Boca's team bus by River fans.
