‘Pizzi to Valencia? No chance’

Juan Antonio Pizzi’s brother has said that whilst coaching Valencia would represent a pay-rise, ‘now there is no chance’ of him leaving San Lorenzo.

The Argentine-born former Spanish international striker has just won the Argentine League as Coach of San Lorenzo and is heavily linked with replacing Miroslav Djukic at the Mestalla.

Superdeporte report that talks have taken place between Pizzi and his agents, and his agents and Los Che, but the operation for his release from his current contract is complicated.

Meanwhile, the Coach’s brother has also asserted that he is likely not to leave at this stage of the season, with the Copa Libertadores coming up.

“Now there is no chance. My brother is one of his word. He will be staying even though he could earn a lot of money, with Valencia paying 100 where San Lorenzo pay 10,” Fran Pizzi has told Diario Ole.

“It is because of [San Lorenzo President Matias] Lammens and [Vice-President Marcelo] Tinelli, who have not accepted his resignation, because they have relied on him for the project.

“Today, Juan is just thinking about creating a good side to win the next Libertadores. In June, it will be resolved.

“My brother would love to train Valencia.”
