Gareca is an Argentine football manager and former player. He currently manages Vélez Sársfield in the Argentine Primera División.

During his playing career, Gareca played for four of the most important teams in Argentina (Boca Juniors, River Plate, Vélez Sársfield and Independiente). He also had a successful experience in Colombia with América de Cali, winning two league titles and being runner-up of three Copa Libertadores.
Since 1996, Gareca works as a manager. He has won one league title in Peru (with Universitario de Deportes) and one in Argentina (with Vélez Sársfield); as well as a second division championship and a Copa CONMEBOL with Talleres de Córdoba.

Gareca started his professional career in 1978 with Boca Juniors, he only played 16 games in his first three years with the club. In 1981 he was loaned out to Sarmiento for the 1981 Metropolitano, but he returned to Boca for the Nacional where he played alongside Diego Maradona with a contribution of 8 goals.

In 1985 Gareca earned the eternal hatred of many Boca fans by transferring directly to their fiercest rivals River Plate along Oscar Ruggeri. Unlike Ruggeri his time with River was limited, he joined América de Cali in Colombia later in 1985. Gareca won two league titles with América, in 1985 and 1986. He also had the misfortune of being on the losing side of the Copa Libertadores final three times in succession (1985, 1986 & 1987).

In 1989 Gareca returned to Argentina where he played with Vélez Sársfield until 1992. In 1993 he joined Independiente for the last few years of his career, making him one of a select band of players to have played for the four most successful teams in Argentine football.

Gareca made his debut for the Argentina national team in 1981 against Poland. He went on to win 20 caps for his country, scoring 5 goals.


América de Cali:

Colombian League: 1985, 1986
Copa Libertadores: Runners Up 1985, 1986, 1987 Semi Finals: 1988


Argentine League: 1994

He deserved a 86 in ATK , el tigre always was more a aggresive player that a good senser forward.
Also the era can be shorted , in America de Cali he was a shadow that who was in Boca.
