Argentina's Gorosito begins coaching career

BUENOS AIRES, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Former Argentina midfielder Nestor Gorosito began his coaching career when he took charge of struggling Nueva Chicago on Thursday.

The 38-year-old, who played for his country in the 1993 Copa America and the qualifiers for the 1994 and 1998 World Cups, was optimistic he could lift Nueva Chicago out of trouble as he replaced Francisco Ferraro, who resigned two weeks ago.

"We've got the raw materials to change the team's fortunes," said Gorosito after his first training session. "I want simple, attacking football."

Gorosito, who won 18 international caps and scored one goal, began his playing career at River Plate before moving to local rivals San Lorenzo, where he played on three separate occasions.

He also had two stints at Chile's Universidad Catolica and played in Japan for Yokohama F Marinos and in Austria for Tirol.

Nueva Chicago, who face fellow strugglers Huracan on Sunday, are 18th in the Apertura championship, having taken only seven points from 10 games.
