Another familiar face from Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s time at Boca Juniors is re-uniting with the manager in Los Angeles. This afternoon the LA Galaxy announced that GBS has decided to bring in Juan José Romero as their new goalkeeping coach.
The 39-year old spent the last two and a half years at Boca Juniors following a four year stint with the Argentine national team that ended with a heartbreaking defeat in the 2014 World Cup final. Romero replaces Ola Nikolov, who left to re-join the Union after an uneventful year at the helm.
In addition to Romero, twin brother Gustavo Barros Schelotto, Ariel Pereyra and Javier Valdecantos have also re-joined Guile’s staff which brought two Argentine league titles to La Bombonera. Now that all the coaching hires have been made, GBS can now focus on preparing the squad for a pre-season that is rapidly approaching.
