After the resignation of the Portuguese Pepa, Cruzeiro is still looking for a technical commander for the remainder of the 2023 season. A specific movement in the market may be an indication of the new coach who will arrive in Belo Horizonte to command Cabuloso.
This is Gabriel Milito, former Argentinos Juniors, eliminated by Fluminense in this Libertadores. The commander resigned from the Argentine club last Wednesday (30) and the club’s publication ended up being liked by Andrés D’alessandro, Cruzeiro’s football coordinator, who worked alongside Milito in Spain.
The name of the Argentine coach had a very positive impact on Cruzeiro on social media, who still dream of qualifying for the next Copa Libertadores in 2024.
