Tigre’s Ledesma becomes 6th Superliga Argentina manager to be fired



Buenos Aires, Sep 25: Argentine club Tigre said it has fired Cristian Ledesma, who has become the sixth manager to lose his job during the six rounds of Superliga Argentina play.

"The club's executive committee asked Cristian Ledesma to leave his coaching position. Juan Carlos Blengio will take over the club on an interim basis until a replacement is found," Tigre said in a statement posted on Twitter on Monday, reports Efe.

The Buenos Aires-based club, which has a record of 1-2-3 and just six points, is in 19th place in the tournament.

Tigre is in danger of being relegated to the Second Division along with San Martin de Tucuman, Patronato and San Martin de San Juan, which fired manager Walter Coyette on Sunday.

The other managers who have lost their jobs since the start of the Superliga are Ezequiel Carboni of Lanus; Juan Pablo Pumpido of Patronato; Ruben Forestello of San Martin de Tucuman, Alfredo Berti of Argentinos and Walter Gastón Coyette.

Huracan beat Tigre 2-0 on Sunday. Tigre will play Independiente on Friday in the seventh match day.
