Racing Club supporters around the World are celebrating the club winning an historic treble after the club secured the Superliga title with one game still to play. The club have not looked back since Diego Milito returned to the club he once played for to become the manager. Milito who won the title with Racing in 2014 as a player he is now a title winner as a manager. The Milito Years have started off better than expected with the club winning 5 trophies in 2 seasons under the man dubbed the prince by the Racing faithful. Milito himself was pleased with the double cup wins last season but this season Racing have been on fire and blown the opposition away with a change of style so what changed?
Welcome to my latest post which is the first post of season 2 with Racing Club. Has I write this post I am still buzzing from this afternoons FM game time which I experienced the full emotions that this game throws at you. Has you have already figured out from the title of this post we have won the Copa Libertadores the pinacle of South American club football. I have redesigned the cover of El Grafico to celebrate our famous win which is the clubs second Copa Libertadores title after winning it in 1967. Lisandro Lopez with 13 goals in the competition was our hero has he turned back the years with some clinical finishing that gained him the golden boot with the pinacle being in the 2nd leg of the Final were he scored an hat-trick to bring the Libertadores home to Avellaneda.
Welcome to the latest events in Avellaneda were Diego Milito has inspired Racing Club to continental glory in lifting the Copa Sudamericana to go alongside the Copa Argentina victory. My last update took us up to the Semi Final draw were we were paired against Brazilian club Fluminense with the 1st leg taking place at home in Avellaneda. I knew that this would be a big test and I was proved right with us grabbing a slender 1-0 win in the 94th minute courtesy of Lautaro Martinez but it was our midfield trio of Federico Vismarra, Arévalo Rios and Diego González who put in a fine display of industrious team work to overpower and contain the Fluminense midfield. I would obviously have liked another goal cushion but I was happy to see the boys performance against a strong opponent. The result spurred the board to offer Milito a new contract which was signed without hesitation giving the rookie manager a 2 year extension.
