Uruguayan fans want plaza as team coach
MONTEVIDEO: Football fans here have launched a campaign via the municipality’s website to name a square in honour of national team coach Oscar Washington Tabarez.
As of early Tuesday, the initiative had gathered 225 signatures from users registered with the Montevideo Decide platform, but it needs 500 supporters to be considered worth of a “viability study”, reports Efe.
Proponents have cited a number of reasons for the proposal, according to the Montevideo municipal website, including the need to “honour in life” Tabarez, known as “The Teacher,” for his work leading the national football team since 2006. (IANS)
