The 51-year-old, who represented Argentina at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, was a part of Avispa Fukuoka’s first-ever J.League squad in 1996.
He has managed a number of local clubs since his retirement as a player, including boyhood club Argentinos Juniors, Atlanta, and San Martin (SJ).
“It’s an honour to have been hired by the club and I’m excited to come to Yamaguchi. I want to focus my efforts on earning victories and hope our fans will continue to support us.”
Renofa are currently last in the 2017 MEIJI YASUDA J2 League with a record of just two wins and 11 losses after 17 rounds.
