‘The best are from Rosario’

Former Barcelona Coach Cesar Luis Menotti has backed Gerardo Martino to enjoy life at the club and commented on the growing connection with Rosario.

Martino is set to put pen to paper on a two-year deal at Barca to replace Tito Vilanova this coming Friday, when he will become the Catalans’ fourth Argentine Coach in their history and the first since Menotti in the 1980s.

For the veteran tactician, Martino’s arrival at the Camp Nou may be down to where he was born.
