Carlos Bianchi in the Frame For Valencia Job

Valencia sacked their manager Quique Flores last weekend after a poor run of form, culminating in a 3-0 defeat to Sevilla on Sunday.

Their search for a new manager now begins and amongst those mentioned was former Boca Juniors coach Carlos Bianchi.

Bianchi endured a tough time in Spain with Atletico Madrid in 2005, but is still highly regarded throughout the game, having won four Copa Libertadores and three Intercontinental Cup titles during his time in charge of Boca and Velez Sarsfield.

He was recently linked with the soon to be vacant managerial position at Velez, but is thought to have turned down their approach. If Valencia come knocking, you cannot help but feel Bianchi would relish another opportunity to prove himself outside of Argentina.
