Gerardo’s season at Barcelona was a total failure
Gerardo took over the head coaching post replacing Tito Vilanova in July 2013, but the odds were sometimes not in his favor.
Gerardo admitted that his season at Barcelona was a complete failure and that if Barca would have had a different profile, even though they wouldn’t have won the title, it would not have been a failure.
But they didn’t win it, and above that, they didn’t play well. He said that Liga would have been a title that would not have brought anything to the club.
Furthermore, he also added his departure was pre-decided before the end of the 2013-14 season, so his decision to leave would not have changed either.
According to him, one can’t hope not to receive any criticism if there is no win and on top of that if one is foreign and if one does not have a past with the club.
He said if the manager asked him for advice in a similar situation, he would suggest they pass through the club first.
The reason her husband left the AFA
Gerardo was appointed the manager of the Argentina national team in 2014, taking over from Alejandro Sabella, who had led the team to the World Cup final.

They first lost on penalties against Chile after reaching the final in the 2015 Copa America.
During an interview, he said he still wanted to be the coach of the Argentina National Team at the World Cup in Russia and that in terms of football, he was satisfied with what happened with Argentina as they played in Two Copa America finals and lost them against Chile against penalty kicks.

He made his debut at 17 and won three titles as a player.
With appearances in a total of 505 matches, he emerged as the best player and was even selected in a fan’s poll as Newell’s best player throughout the club’s history.

During his season at Atlanta United FC, he led the team to an honored in their second season and was honoured with MLS Coach of the Year.
