It was two-game losing streak in crucial matches. He’s not used to experiencing these kinds of frustrations. The first, with Palmeiras (0-3), put him in a difficult position in the face of revenge for the Copa Libertadores final. And the second with Independiente (0-2), eliminating him from the Maradona Cup. River coach Marcelo Gallardo focused this tension at the end of the match at Banfield, and got into a fight with the lines assistant Hernan Medina.I talked about more and He was fired.
Gallardo protested against the play at the end of the match. “Don’t be silly. He covers him with his arm like this,” said River coach Hernan Maidana’s streak, mimicking an elbow movement.
When Medina explained to him that the Independiente player’s arm position was low, Gallardo replied: “No, not like this (with his arm down); it was like this (and his elbow raised up). You see nothing damn.”

Line’s response to something River Coach didn’t hear in the video, but this only made him even more angry: “Don’t be nice to me clown. Clown, clown! You are playing clown here.”.
At that moment, referee Diego Appal approached the position of River’s head coach and showed him the red. Gallardo took a few steps back, intent on continuing to watch the match from the side, but the referee ordered him to go to the dressing room.
Next Tuesday, 9:30 pm, he will face River Palmeiras in Brazil and try to reverse the opposite result of the first leg to play again in the Copa Libertadores final.
