Wherever Ricardo La Volpe coaches appears to leave a bitter taste in the mouth for that national team or that club. In the 2006 World Cup it was the Mexican national team and La Volpe's bitter feud with Blanco that created a controversy. Last season Boca saw their season implode when all they needed was a win finally losing to Estudiantes. And this time sees La Volpe exiting Velez Sarsfield after they suffered a 0-4 defeat to Boca.
Of course, as his want, La Volpe made himself thoroughly unpopular with the Velez team, criticizing the reserve team which prompted the reserve coach, Omar Asad to fire back, "No one here supports La Volpe, there's no relationship with him."
