Gago ‘Superstar’

Fernando Gago did it. After receiving countless sticks years ago due to his management at Aldosivi and even during his first stage at Racing, the Argentine returned to La Academia to sign his best season since he assumed the role of coach. This past Sunday he won the Champions Trophy final, 2-1, against Boca Juniors.

The final will always be remembered for being the first raised by Gago as coach and for the expulsion of up to ten players. Racing was eleven meters away from winning the Argentine Professional League because of the penalty that Armani, River goalkeeper, stopped Jonatan Galván. The Academy was not champion despite being the team that added the most points in the annual table, the second that scored the most goals and the one that received the least. That thorn was removed with the conquest of the Champions Trophy.

The tears that the entire squad shed a few days ago for staying very close to the league title became joy at being able to celebrate the consecration of a new trophy. The first after 2 years without winning one, the last was the 2018-19 Champions Trophy. Gago made Racing great again with a constant insistence throughout the season and with an ability to prevail on any stage. The Argentine coach managed to change the mentality of his players so as not to give up before taking the field.
