sacked in little more than two months in the 20-team Argentine
Pumpido, who played for the team captained by Diego Maradona
that won the 1986 World Cup, resigned on Sunday from Godoy Cruz
after Saturday's 3-0 defeat by San Lorenzo left them with one
win in 10 matches halfway through the Clausura championship.
"Unfortunately, cycles come to an end and mine's finished,"
the 54-year-old, who steered Paraguay's Olimpia to victory in
the Libertadores Cup 10 years ago, told reporters on Monday.
