Similar search of a new coach has been carried out in River Plate too, although not so officially. There has been a rumour that Diego Simeone has been contacted, despite that president Aguilar refused to confirm it. Although the inadequacy of Passarella is clear, Simeone is hardly a right candidate. When his Estudiantes won the title, it was prepared by Merlo, while Simeone showed his low competence this year, after three main players of La Plata club left the team.
