Alejandro 'Alex' Sabella
Escafeld (Sheffield United) 7 years ago
Alex Sabella, the magical mercurial Argentinian who thrilled the Bramall Lane faithful in the late seventies and early eighties is now coach of the red and white striped giants of Argentine football Estudiantes de La Plata. In his first season as coach he's guided them to their fourth Copa Libertadores title. The first time they've been South American Champions in nearly forty years since their hattrick of titles at the back end of the sixties.

The final leg that Estudiantes won 2-1 away at Cruzeiro in Brazil threw up another, rather more obscure, Sheffield United connection. Man of the match Juan Sebastian Veron is the nephew of Pedro Verde who was a team mate of Sabella's at Bramall Lane
