One of Argentina's most well known clubs, Boca Juniors, appointed Julio Cesar Falcioni as their new coach on Wednesday. The board are attempting to get the club back on track after it's downward spiral in the last couple of seasons.

Falcioni was chosen to replace Claudio Borghi, who resigned a month ago following the team's 1-0 loss to fierce rival River Plate. After a dismal season in Argentina's Apetura where they finished 11th out of 20 teams, the club decided to change things around.

Boca Junior's president, Jorge Amor Ameal,said they already had a great team and with the signing of Falcioni they now have a man that can return Boca Juniors to the the top. Falcioni takes the reigns following his decision to step down a week ago from Banfield, which finished a lowly 15th in this seasons Apetura. The 54-year-old played professionally as a goalkeeper, coached Banfield to the 2009 Apertura title.
