    TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – Olimpia announced Wednesday that it has named Hector Vargas as head coach, replacing Oscar Salgado, who departs after slightly more than one month in charge.

    The move was made only days after the Lions were eliminated from the Apertura playoffs at the semifinal stage by Real España, ending a run of four-consecutive domestic titles.

    In order to accept the position, Vargas, 54, stepped down from his managerial post with fellow Honduran-side Victoria, which – like Olimpia – participated in this season’s CONCACAF Champions League.

    The Argentine has coached in the Central American country for 16 years with clubs such as Platense and Vida.

    Salgado is expected to remain with the club in another capacity.
