    Municipal, Trossero part ways

    GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala – Municipal will hire its fourth head coach in less than two years, announcing Monday that Enzo Trossero will not be returning to the sidelines for the 2015 Guatemalan Apertura season.

    Six months after the Argentine returned for a second stint with the club, both parties decided mutually to discontinue the relationship.

    From the 2004 Apertura – 2006 Clausura, Trossero led Municipal to a then-record five consecutive league titles.  That mark fell in May, though, when rival Comunicaciones captured its sixth straight crown, overcoming the Rojos, 4-3 on aggregate, in the 2015 Clausura final.

    "A determination was arrived to on the part of the Board that the head coach will not continue for the next campaign,” the club said in a statement.

    In his most recent spell, Trossero guided Municipal to a 14W-5D-5L record and a place in the 2015/16 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League.


    • Municipal previously announced that players Marco Tulio Ciani, Osmar Lopez, Maximiliano Callorda, Kevin Santamaría, Dario Gomez, Hessler Archila y Hamilton Lopez will not be returning, while Wilber Perez (Petapa), Dany Lopez (Guastatoya), Manuel Moreno (Antigua GFC) and Sixto Betancourt (Plaza Colonia/Uruguay) have been added to the roster.
