The exporter German Burgos, who was Diego Simeone's assistant at Atlético de Madrid and Racing Club, made his debut this Friday as coach of Newell's Old Boys with a goalless draw as a local before Union of Santa Fe.

In a match that opened the sixth day of the Professional League Cup, the Rosario team led by Germán Burgos registered an equality, which leaves it in the last place in Zone B with just two points.

In this way, the rosarino cast continues unable to win in the tournament although this Friday he had one of the few undefeated who remain in the gaucho contest in front of him and that adds ten units.

With a tactical scheme of four defenders, a central referent, another line of four midfielders and a forward, the 'Mono' Burgos began to define the style and imprint of the game that he intends to give to his Newell's.

Although Burgos arrived in Rosario on Tuesday and was only able to direct three practices before this premiere, the first impressions of his team mark the search for a defensive solidity although he still lacks surprise on offense.

The 'Monkey' was shown very active in the indications throughout the match and maintained a visceral and outgoing style that characterized him both in his playing stage and when he was Diego Simeone's main assistant.

The sixth day of this League Cup will continue into the weekend and conclude on Monday with various featured encounters: Vélez Sarsfield-Independiente, Boca Juniors-Talleres de Córdoba, Godoy Cruz-River Plate, San Lorenzo-Aldosivi and Racing Club-Argentinos Juniors.
