Paraguay's Cerro Porte?o names former star as sporting director

Asuncion, Dec 8 (IANS) Roberto Nanni, who as a striker helped Cerro Porte?o win the Paraguayan first division in 2012, was introduced as the new sporting director for the Asuncion football club.

"This is the biggest challenge I've ever faced," the Argentine said at a press conference on Friday with coach Fernando Jubero and just-elected club president Raul Zapag, who described Nanni as "someone who left it all on the field for Cerro Porte?o," reports Efe news.

Nanni joined Cerro Porte?o in 2009 and was the league's top scorer in 2010. He was also playing for Cerro Porte?o when they won the title in 2012.


Looking ahead, Nanni said he wants to find a proven goalkeeper to serve as backup to starter Anthony Silva.

Cerro Porte?o has qualified for the 2019 Copa Libertadores, but supporters have been unhappy to see arch-rival Olimpia win the last two league titles.

Jubero said that he was working to get Cerro Porte?o "back to where it belongs" and create a team that is "as competitive as possible."
