Marcelo Gallardo may have lost the Copa Libertadores final to Jorge Jesus’ Flamengo but he is still River Plate’s most successful coach ever, having won the trophy twice before, as well as one Copa Sudamericana and three Recopa Sudamericanas, among others.

In an era when it’s harder than ever to build a successful dynasty in Argentina, because players are so regularly signed by European clubs, Gallardo has found consistent success in one of the continent’s highest profile coaching roles. His ten titles include seven international trophies, more than had been won by River in their history before his tenure. At the age of only 43, the former River Plate, Monaco, and Paris Saint-Germain attacking midfielder is being linked with top jobs in Europe, none more so than Barcelona.
