Juan Antonio Pizzi

Juan Antonio Pizzi Torroja (born 7 June 1968 in Santa Fe) is a former Argentine-born Spanish professional footballer, and a current coach.

Pizzi started his professional career with Rosario Central, before transferring to Mexico's Deportivo Toluca. After only one season he moved to Tenerife, with great individual success (30 goals in his first two seasons combined), while also helping the Canary Islands outfit qualify for the UEFA Cup in his second year.

This performances prompted interest from fellow league club Valencia. Highly unsettled, Pizzi returned after only one season to Tenerife. In the second season in his second spell, he fired the club into another UEFA Cup qualification, topping the goal charts at 31, in 41 contests, also good enough for the European Golden Boot.
