Carlos A. Mannucci's season has been very irregular, with a common denominator: he had a bad start in the Apertura and now in the Clausura. In the current League 1 competition, the club suffered three defeats in the same number of games and the board of directors of the Trujillo team decided to end the relationship with coach Mario Saralegui.
Let us remember that the Uruguayan DT arrived at the northern sports entity in March of this year, after the crisis of results during the brief process of Enrique Meza. Shortly after taking office in the 'Carlistas', the experienced strategist reaped good results, although he also had negative stages.
Due to the recent losing streak, the Mannucci authorities announced the determination they made. “We inform the sports community that the functions of the technical command headed by Professor Mario Saralegui have concluded, thanking him for the services provided and wishing him success in his next projects”, indicates the statement on Twitter.
In the same way, it was known that the squad will be in charge of Óscar Gambetta and José Cruz, on an interim basis, while the next coach is chosen. Let's remember that the team will play against the Cantolao Academy, at the Mansiche Stadium, next Sunday, July 31, for the fifth date of the Clausura.
On the other hand, Mannucci also reported that Raúl Lozano, president of the club, and his board of directors were present at practice this Thursday. The intention of the highest authority of the 'Carlistas' was “provide a clear and firm message to the campus, demanding the greatest commitment and professionalism to get the institution out of the uncomfortable situation on the table”.

Carlos A. Mannucci has had a lousy start in the Torneo Clausura and has three losses in as many games. During these presentations, the team received six goals and did not score any, which is why they are complicated in the lower part of the table: for now they are saved from relegation by the 20 points added in the Apertura.
