Football – Abroad – World Champion José Luis "Tata" Brown is deadAugust 13, 2019
Argentine football is in mourning, and has just lost one of its legends. José Luis Brown died on Monday at the age of 62 following a degenerative illness, as announced by the Argentine Football Federation and its former club Estudiantes de La Plata. "A day of extreme sadness for the Albirroja family, our gladiator José Luis Brown has passed away. His memory and his love for the club will remain forever, "tweeted the Argentine club, where he was trained and spent most of his career (1975-1983).
World Champion and former Brest Armorique
The one who was nicknamed "El Tata" also passed by the Atletico Nacional in Colombia, and played some matches for Boca Juniors and the Spanish Deportivo during the year 1985. A few tracks sufficient to keep the confidence of the coach of the Albiceleste Carlos Bilardo, who selects him for the 1986 World Cup. Brown takes advantage of the injury of Daniel Passarella to play the entire tournament. In the final, he opened the scoring against Germany, registering at the same time the first (and only goal) of his career in selection.
He was then one of François Yvinec's key recruits in Brest Armorique, who wanted to set up a high-level team with a South American accent. But the project runs out and Brown only spends a year in Brittany, where he nevertheless leaves an unforgettable memory. He had stopped his sporting career in 1989 to become a coach, without obtaining convincing results in the clubs where he went. At the beginning of the year, he had been hospitalized urgently, suffering from the consequences of Alzheimer's disease. His condition had been deteriorating ever since.
