MEXICO CITY - Argentine coach Ruben
Romano, victim of a kidnapping in 2005, is returning to
Guadalajara-based Atlas on a one-year deal, the Mexican club
said on Thursday.
"Atlas FC informs it has reached an agreement with Mr Ruben
Omar Romano to coach the red-and-blacks of Atlas. The Argentine
coach comes for one year," Atlas said.
"(Romano) has a style of play in which his teams show a
great attacking commitment and good ball control, he puts his
faith in the juniors and, most importantly, gives them chances
to play," they added.
It will be the 53-year-old Romano's second spell at the club
after coaching them in 2006/07 and he replaces Benjamin Galindo.
Romano, a former midfielder who has spent all his coaching
career in Mexico since 1998, steered Santos Laguna to two
successive league finals last year but was sacked in February
for making an insulting gesture to angry Saints fans.
He was kidnapped when he was coach at Cruz Azul in Mexico
City in 2005 and held for 65 days before being freed by federal
