Playing careerEdit

Néstor Pipo Gorosito began his playing career at River Plate, and subsequently had 3 spells at San Lorenzo where he scored 72 goals in 241 appearances. His other main club was Chile's Universidad Católica, where he contributed with 149 appearances and retired with the side in 2000.

Gorosito had a spell playing for Swarovski Tirol in Austria between 1989 and 1991, and in Japan with Yokohama Marinos in 1996. He also made 19 appearances for Argentina national team between 1989 and 1997.[1]

Managerial historyEdit

Gorosito started his managerial career at Nueva Chicago in 2003, avoiding relegation with the side in the play-offs. He was subsequently appointed at San Lorenzo de Almagro, but was sacked in 2004 after a poor run of results.

In 2005 Gorosito was named Lanús manager, but his reign only lasted two months. He was appointed at the helm of Rosario Central in the following year, being relieved from his duties in March 2007.

In 2008 Gorosito guided Argentinos Juniors to a qualification for that year's Copa Sudamericana, the club's first international tournament since 1996 Supercopa Sudamericana. Appointed by River Plate on 8 December 2008, he resigned on 4 October 2009 after underachieving in both Copa Libertadores and Primera División.[2]

On 19 January 2010, Gorosito was named Xerez CD manager, with the side being dead last in La Liga.[3] Despite suffering relegation, he achieved seven wins out of 19 matches, but left the club in July after failing to agree a new deal.[4]

In September 2011 Gorosito returned to Argentinos Juniors, but resigned on 28 February of the following year, after suffering intestinal damage and a fractured vertebra in a car crash hours before his team lost against San Lorenzo.[5] On 23 October 2012 he was appointed manager of Tigre.

Gorosito took Tigre to the final of 2012 Copa Sudamericana, but stepped down from his role on 6 July 2013 after having altercations with the club's board. In October 2014 he returned to Argentinos, taking the club back to the first division at first attempt.

On 23 December 2015 Gorosito was appointed manager of UD Almería, ranked last in Segunda División.[6] On 16 May of the following year, he was sacked after his side was still in the relegation zone.[7]

Personal lifeEdit

Gorosito has also worked in TV, as a consultant manager during 2005, on Fox Sports Latin America.
