Dario Franco

Dario Javier Franco Gatti is a naturalized Mexican football manager and a former Argentine international football (soccer) player. He is currently inactive such as manager.

Franco made his football debut in his native country briefly playing with Newell's Old Boys, and later with Spain's Real Zaragoza. He arrived in Mexico in 1995 and enrolled with Atlas. After three years with the club, he then transferred to Monarcas where he obtained huge success, winning the 2000 championship.

He played also with the Argentina national football team, scoring two goals in the 1991 Copa America, and winning the competition. In the 1993 edition of the Copa America he was to play regularly in order to replace banned Claudio Caniggia, but unfortunately for Franco, he was tackled in Argentina's first match and had ruptures of tibia and fibula, which effectively brought his career on the backfood.
