Guillermo Barros Schelotto was introduced as the new coach of Argentine football club Boca Juniors. He said he wants to take the outfit “to the top”.

The 42-year-old confirmed on Wednesday that he will manage his first match with the team on Thursday against Racing Club in La Bombonerahere. The match is the second fixture of Copa Libertadores de America group stage, reports Xinhua.

Barros Schelotto’s next match will take place on Sunday in Monumental Stadium against Boca’s biggest rivals River Plate in the local league.

“Soon we will try to give the team the things we want and take them to the top,” said the former forward, who played for the club for 10 years.

Barros Schelotto said there was little time to develop his ideas before the upcoming matches as they are so close. However, things will change as the matches go on. When and what position star player Carlos Tevez would play, the coach replied “up front”.

“It is in these areas that he (Tevez) has made a difference. He can play more or less up front but this is the position for him,” said Barros Schelotto, adding that he was very excited to return to Boca.

“It is great but we should keep our feet on the ground and think about what is coming,” added Barros Schelotto, whose brother Gustavo will work as his assistant.
