Fernando Gago, accused of ‘laying bed’ to the coach of the Argentine National Team

Former Argentine player and current Chivas technical director, Fernando Gago, is facing controversy from his own country following statements made by former National Team coach, Alfio ‘Coco’ Basile. Basile recently revealed details about Gago’s departure from the Argentine National Team in 2008, citing the midfielder’s lack of consistency as a key factor.

Basile, who was eventually replaced by Diego Maradona during the World Cup qualifiers, claimed that Gago’s desire to play and lack of influence in promoting his departure were reasons for his exit from the team. Despite having star players like Lionel Messi on the squad, Basile felt that Gago’s struggles at the time contributed to his own dismissal.

Known for his successful coaching career, which included leading the Argentine National Team to victory in the Confederations Cup and two Copa América titles in 1991 and 1993, Basile has had a long and storied history in soccer. He also coached clubs in Argentina, Spain, Uruguay, and even had a brief stint in Liga MX with Club América.

Gago, who has had a positive start as Chivas’ technical director, will now have to navigate these newfound controversies from his past as a player. Despite his early success with the team, these revelations may add a new layer of scrutiny to his tenure moving forward.
