Juan Carlos Lorenzo

Juan Carlos ("Toto") Lorenzo was an Argentine football player and coach. He is an icon for Boca Juniors fans, as he coached the club to its first two Copa Libertadores titles.

In his teens, Lorenzo played for Chacarita Juniors, and made his professional debut in 1940. He was transferred to Boca Juniors in 1945, and after two years he joined Italian side Sampdoria team, where he remained until 1952. His next clubs would be now-defunct French F.C. Nancy, and Atletico Madrid, Rayo Vallecano, and RCD Mallorca, where in 1958 he was coach and player. Then, he quit play but remained as coach.

In the next two seasons, Lorenzo achieved a rare feat: Mallorca was promoted from third to second division and to first division in consecutive years. Mallorca fans still cherish Lorenzo's achievement.
