Abel Balbo, former striker and emerged from the Lower Newell’s, gave a news that surprised everyone. He wishes to direct both in Argentina and Italy and in his coaching staff will be someone who had never been seen in the football environment: the basketball coach Julio Lamas!!!
“He’s a front-line driver”
This is how Balbo defined Lamas when he told the surprising news, since he is beginning to form his own coaching staff to direct. “I am putting together my coaching staff to direct and Julio Lamas is my first choice. He’s a front-line driver. I am convinced, I am not afraid of criticism. Julio is going to be very important as my right hand. It’s a 10“Said the former forward of the Argentine National Team.
How did Balbo and Lamas meet?
They met when they joined the candidate for president of Newell’s, JJ Concina. Balbo was going for the position of manager and Lamas of sports director, they immediately hit very good vibes. Lamas has wanted to go to football for a long time, I thought about it before grabbing the Japan National Team at the Tokyo Olympics.

They met in these days for that issue, to shape it. Balbo wants to direct here and is looking for a team. However, the former Newell’s made it very clear: “I just wouldn’t lead to Central“.
Finally, Balbo expressed: “He (Lamas) is not going to be a coach, he is not going to be training soccer players with me, he is going to be my right hand in everything that is management, he has a very important experience in the world of sport and I want to a 10 next to me“.
Lamas wants to dedicate himself to soccer.
