Vasco signs former Argentina striker Ramon Diaz as head coach

Vasco da Gama have named former Argentina international striker Ramon Diaz as their head coach for the rest of the 2023 season.

Diaz, 63, will replace Mauricio Barbieri, who was sacked in late June this year after the club’s poor start to the Brazilian Serie A season.

Diaz will be joined by assistant coaches Emiliano Diaz and Juan Romanazzi, the Rio de Janeiro club said in a statement.

Notably, Vasco are currently placed 19th in the 20-team standings with just couple of wins from 14 games so far.

Capped 22 times for Argentina’s national team between 1979 and 1982, Diaz began his managerial career with River Plate in 1995 and has since had spells at Mexico’s America, Brazilian side Botafogo and Paraguay’s Libertad, among other teams.
