Former Argentina coach Alfio Basile will remain in charge of Boca Juniors despite a poor run that has brought defeats in their last three matches.

Basile second spell at Boca has resulted in one win and three draws in seven matches, and the coach handed in his resignation after the match.

“After the meeting held by the (club) directors, Basile was ratified as xeneize trainer,” Boca said on their official website (www.bocajuniors.com.ar).

The 65-year-old, who missed the post-match news conference at Boca’s Bombonera stadium, resigned as he was unable to make the team perform.

Basile had quit the Argentina job a year ago after a similar string of poor results in World Cup qualifiers.

Boca are 13th in the Apertura championship with five points from five matches and eight off the pace. They were eliminated last week from the Copa Sudamericana, South America’s equivalent of the Europa League.

Basile returned to Boca in July amid high hopes that he could repeat his previous spell at the club from 2005 to 2006, when they won two league titles and the Copa Sudamericana.
