Omar Pastoriza is to return to former club Independiente for the fifth time.

Pastoriza is now the fourth man to take the reigns of the club in under a year.

The 60-year-old played for the club in the 1960s and had previous successful spells as coach during the 1970s and 1980s.

Pastoriza replaces Osvaldo Sosa who was sacked last week after only 11 games at the helm.

Independiente had a disappointing campaign last season, finishing 14th in the league and managing only five wins.
