Sebastián Beccacece announced as Elche DT

Argentine Sebastián Beccacece was announced on Tuesday as the new coach of Elche, until the end of the 2023/24 season.

The departure of Pablo Machín from Elche after arriving at the team in November and managing 12 LaLiga matches forced a new relief on the LaLiga Santander bench so far this season.

Elche’s chosen coach is the team’s sixth this season after Francisco Rodríguez, Jorge Almirón and Pablo Machín in addition to the club’s interim coaches who managed one game, such as Alberto Gallego and Sergio Mantecón.

Beccacece, 42, began his career as assistant to Jorge Sampaoli, who was recently sacked from Sevilla, at Peruvian, Chilean and Ecuadorian clubs. Between 2012 and 2015 he followed the coach to the Chilean National Team, where they did well in the 2014 World Cup, conquered the 2015 Copa America.

As head coach he took his first steps in Universidad de Chile and Defensa y Justicia, to return in 2017 as Sampaoli’s assistant in the Argentina National Team, which was eliminated in the round of 16 of the 2018 World Cup. In that period he took charge of the Albiceleste U20.

From there he continued his path in Defensa y Justicia, Independiente, Racing and again in Defensa y Justicia.
