side Argentinos Juniors from a hospital bed after suffering
multiple injuries in a car crash.
The 47-year-old crashed his pickup truck in the early hours
of Saturday on a highway on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, hours
before his team lost a league match against San Lorenzo.
"Today, the coaching staff led by Nestor Gorosito handed in
their resignations to the board. These will be evaluated jointly

Gorosito in September midway through the Apertura, first of two
championships in the season.
Picking up a team with no wins in seven matches, he steered
them to five victories and three draws in 11. Argentinos have
picked up only one point from three matches in the Clausura
