Patricio d’Amico, who served as analyst and translator for Jorge Sampaoli at OM in the spring, will bounce back according to Le Parisien in Ivry, in National 3, as a coach.
He had left the Olympian club almost anonymously a few weeks ago. Landed in March at the Commanderie in the new staff of Jorge Sampaoli, Patricio d’Amico will have had only a short experience with OM.
The former analyst and translator, twin brother of ex-Lille player Fernando d’Amico, was recently replaced by former defender Felipe Saad. But the Argentine didn’t take long to bounce back.
D’Amico will aim to climb to N2 with Ivry
This Wednesday, Le Parisien announces that the 46-year-old will take up a new challenge by taking up the torch of a Ile-de-France club, Ivry, playing in National 3. A daring choice of the Val-de-Marne team while other names, including that of Alain Mboma, seemed to have been studied. Especially since the experiences on the bench of Patricio d’Amico are not legion: apart from a stint in the Uruguayan club of CD Maldonado or in Italy at the Academia Pavese, the background is, for the moment, rather thin.
But he will be able to count in the 94 on a seasoned group which will still fight for the rise in National 2, after having played the leading roles last season. Not without forgetting to keep an eye on OM, like this Wednesday evening for the preparation match against SC Braga – with most of the Olympian recruits for the summer.
