Boca Juniors sack coach Falcioni

Buenos Aires, Dec 11 (IANS) Argentine football giants Boca Juniors are seeking a new coach after parting with Julio Cesar Falcioni.

Former boss Carlos Bianchi, who led the club to three Copa Libertadores triumphs in four years in the early 2000s, is favourite to take over the job, reports Xinhua.

Falcioni was roundly jeered by Boca fans during the team's 2-1 home victory over Godoy Cruz in the last match of the 2012 Apertura championship Saturday.

"I want to tell Boca members and fans that, after a talk I had with Julio Cesar Falcioni, we have decided not to renew his contract, understanding that what happened Saturday has made both of us reflect it would be very difficult to work under so much pressure," club president Daniel Angelici told a news conference.

Falcioni had been under pressure since Boca's 1-3 aggregate loss to Brazil's Corinthians in the Copa Libertadores final in July.

Boca finished Argentina's 2012 Apertura championship in a disappointing sixth place.
