San Lorenzo: due to the crisis they feel that Marcelo Tinelli should already step aside

The crisis in San Lorenzo extends to all fronts. No answers in the game and eliminated from the League Cup, the internal short circuits sprout more and more strongly. Thus, the Cyclone passes crucial hours in which it is expected for the definition of Marcelo Tinelli in relation to the license that was taken as president (it ends in the next few days). In principle, it is intuited that the businessman and television host would not return to his position. But the message is delayed and the rest of the leadership is looking for the decision to arrive as soon as possible. With this, the turbulence in Barça politics could cause changes at any time. Complex times for an institution where everything gets out of hand.

After the last fall against Patronato, from Paraná, the insults and whistles returned. Just like a week ago against Platense, the fans gathered at the exit of the popular tribune of the New Gasometer to protest the terrible sporting and institutional moment that the Cyclone is going through, which tomorrow they will face Newell’s, in Rosario, from 8:30 pm.

Tinelli and Matías Lammens were the main ones targeted by the songs, between the anger and the requests for resignations. Concerned about the general situation, several fans and the opposition already called for early elections repeatedly. It should be remembered that the next vote of authorities is scheduled for December 2023.

Talks and meetings take place permanently at the club after the departure of Pedro Troglio’s technical management, who barely managed 10 games. One of them after the hard fall against Patronato, last Saturday, in the offices of the New Gasometer.

Horacio Arreceygor (the current president), Lammens, Miguel Mastrosimone (secretary) and Claudio Lantarón (treasurer) were there. Once again Tinelli was asked for a definition on his license. Meanwhile, the businessman – oblivious to the effervescent climate that was experienced on the field – uploaded Instagram stories with his wife Guillermina Valdés on the occasion of the birthday of his youngest son.

For this reason, the internal intensifies day after day. “You have to decompress the situation”, is heard in the bowels of the stadium. The fans, too, demand more outings within the ruling party… That Tinelli decided to move away would be interpreted as a good gesture. They believe that it would somewhat alleviate a scenario of constant turmoil.

The last meetings of the Cyclone were a real hive. The classic “Players, the c… of your mother, let’s see if they lay eggs, they don’t play with anyone”, sounds loud during the games. But where it is fully targeted is the leaders: “The commission, the commission, is going to the p… that gave birth to him.” “Let them all go, let not a single one remain” is another of the chants that has been heard for several months in Bajo Flores.

A conduction that knew how to rescue San Lorenzo from a well in 2012 and also achieved the dream Copa Libertadores in 2014, but that in recent times has been characterized by confusion. That is why the political tension in Boedo reached its peak.

Once Tinelli finishes defining his future –the president does not want to appear framed as the only one responsible for the bad moment dragging the entity–, San Lorenzo will embark on what is to come.

For now, there is no way to find a dose of calm that could modify the climate of tension in which he is involved. In the corridors, someone thought of Mario Husillos as the new sports director. The former Ciclón and Boca striker has lived in Spain for many years and worked successfully alongside Manuel Pellegrini. And the next coach? No one has a concrete answer. In the surname dance, Juan Ramón Carrasco, Alexander Medina, Mauricio Pellegrino, Néstor Gorosito and even Julio César Falcioni are heard.

Like everything that surrounds the club, there are no certainties. And in the face of this, a detail emerges that cannot be ignored: the generalized economic crisis and the readjustment that San Lorenzo is going through will force once again to sharpen ingenuity. We will have to see how far the Cyclone can stretch on the monetary plane.

For some time now, the Barça leadership has stressed that it has been facing a stage of economic and financial reorganization. Nevertheless, behind closed doors, another problem was added since the issue of averages began to be looked at with concern. In the League Cup, San Lorenzo has just 11 points in the 12 dates played in zone 1. It no longer has a chance of qualifying for the quarterfinals. Of the greats, it is the worst placed and the only one that does not participate in an international competition, neither the Copa Libertadores nor the Sudamericana.

For all this, a ghost that already stalked them in 2012 is viewed with distrust. The concern is not immediate, but for the 2023 season. In the way the results are presented today, the entire Boedo neighborhood would start in 22nd position (in total there will be 28 teams) and four clubs would go down. The distance with Platense, the last of those who would go down to the First National, would be only six points.

Finally another source of tension appears. One more, yes. Is that the club’s commitment to Richard Centurion, that arrived in January of this year, did not work either. The player with the cyclothymic career and a personality that closed the same doors for him that his talent with the ball opened for him. Who was always given one more chance. The truth is that yesterday the footballer missed training for the second day in a row. On this occasion he alleged “personal problems.”

Without going any further, it was not the only absence in Centurion’s practices. And one of them had been last week. There it was officially said that he had low back pain (back pain), but many doubted that notification. In the last games, the midfielder did not travel to Santa Fe to face Unión and the interim coach, Fernando Berón, sent him to the bench against Patronato. On loan until December –his pass belongs to Vélez and Racing in equal parts–, Nobody rules out that the link will be cut as soon as this tournament ends. All very confusing within a hostile climate. San Lorenzo has no peace.
