Boca Juniors head coach left the club after losing to River Plate in the Copa Libertadores final. Guillermo Barros Schelotto is no longer the head coach of Boca Juniors, reports the BBC.

The 45-year-old Argentine left his post several days after his team was defeated by River Plate in the Copa Libertadores final.

The club’s President Daniel Angelici said that it would be better for the team to start the new year with a new coach at the head.

Schelotto led Boca Juniors in March of 2016. In total, the team played 106 matches (58 wins, 29 draws, 19 losses) under his leadership. The coach managed to win the Argentine League twice.
