Antonio Mohamed

'''Antonio 'El Turco' Mohamed''' (born 2 April 1970 in Buenos Aires) is a retired Argentine football striker, and current manager of Colon de Santa Fe. He started his career in Argentina with Huracan, but played the majority of his career in Mexico. His climax was in Toros Neza when they had made it to the final against Chivas in the Verano '97 season alongside other famous players at the time such as Nildeson, Rodrigo Ruiz, and German Arangio. Mohamed left Toros Neza shortly before the club dissolved and went on to play for Club de Futbol Monterrey. After playing shortly for several other Mexican football clubs from 2000 to 2003, he officially retired.

After retiring as a player, he returned to Buenos Aires to become the manager of Club Atletico Huracan. He then had spells as manager of Mexican clubs Zacatepec, Morelia, Queretaro FC and Jaguares de Chiapas. Mohamed returned to Argentina and in 2007 he guided Huracan back into the Primera Division Argentina for the first time since their relegation in 2003, only to be replaced by Osvaldo Ardiles six games into the season.

Mohamed then returned to Mexico to take over as manager of CD Veracruz and he is now back to Argentina as manager of Colon. He wears former Turkish clothes and he carries tasbih during the matches. So everyone calls him "El Turco"..
