Loffreda takes the reins at Leicester

New Leicester boss Marcelo Loffreda believes the experience he gained at the World Cup will stand him in good stead at Welford Road.

Loffreda is set to take up the reins at the Tigers next month after leading Argentina to an incredible third-place finish at the tournament in France.

The Pumas coach also revealed he will be recruiting one or two new backroom staff faces to help his cause.

“I’m starting to prepare myself and think about this new, difficult challenge I will have as head coach,” he told the Clarin newspaper.

“I will try to take profit from what I have lived in the World Cup.”

Loffreda said one or two of his fellow Argentinians might come along as backroom staff, such as Daniel Baetti, who worked alongside him with the national team.

“Firstly, I have to land, know the environment. I will move around. Then, if I can, I will be able to call up somebody,” he said.

“I’ve always been comfortable with people who worked with me, such as Daniel.

“However, he is not a person who would change his life completely. He will keep on working in medicine, his profession, and he might not help me. Maybe Diego Cash could help me too.”

Loffreda admitted he was already missing coaching the Pumas after seven years at the helm.

“We’ve been walking the same road for years. The technical staff have always worked all together serving players, as I always demanded,” he said.
