From Argentina confirm that Ricardo Gareca’s relationship with Velez Sarsfield will last less than a year.
Ricardo Gareca has not been captain since he was with the Peruvian national team in the Qatar 2022 qualifiers against Australia. After more than six months of inactivity, Velez Sarsfield will be his new team.
And this Thursday, the Argentine press realized that Velez and Ricardo Garica had everything ready to confirm their connection. In this way, the Argentine coach will return to his country, and specifically to a team with his past in the Argentine first division. This will be announced in the coming days.
Journalist Cesar Luis Merlo said on his Twitter account: “Garica has returned to Velez. The agreement between the two parties is already complete and, in the absence of transit contracts, he must sign by December 2023 on Monday.”

It should be recalled that, earlier this week, a meeting was reported on Argentine soil between “Tigre” and the management of the Liners team.
The coach even confirmed the advanced conversations with the Ecuadorian selection, but it is indicated that they did not materialize due to economic differences with “La Tri”.
In this way, Ricardo Gareca would do everything to return to Velez Sarsfield’s shop, with whom he was champion up to four times between 2009 and 2013, before arriving in Peru to take charge of the rubro-negros.
It is important to remember that, at club level, the Argentine has played for San Martin, Talleres, Independiente, Colón, Quilmes, Argentinos Juniors, America de Cali, Independiente Santa Fe, Universitario de Deportes and Palmeiras.
Gareca and the hard work he will find in Vélez
DT will have a tough job as “Fortín” is going into a hacked Pro League box. Last Saturday, they lost 2-1 at the José Amalfitani Stadium against Boca Juniors.
So far in the national championship, the “V Azulada” is the seventeenth ranked with just five points to the same number of days played.
