Gallardo appointed Nacional coach

Marcello Gallardo has been appointed the new coach of Uruguayan outfit Nacional.

The Montivedeo outfit won the Uruguayan championship last year, and have moved fast to appoint the former midfielder.

“I welcome it when such options come up. That a club like Nacional, whose colours I was defending as a player up to a short time ago, should look to me to give me the responsibility of being their trainer makes me proud and is a big challenge. I’m looking forward to getting started,” said Gallardo.
