GOAL - Ryan Tolmich


Juan Carlos Osorio has left his role as Paraguay manager after just five-and-a-half months on the job, the federation confirmed on Wednesday.

Amid reports of his unhappiness with the role, Osorio called a press conference on Wednesday with federation president Robert Harrison.

The two confirmed Osorio's departure at that press conference, ending his stint as Paraguay boss after just one match.


"I would like to tell you that today we've been speaking with manager Juan Carlos Osorio where we made the decision, together, to annul his contract with the Paraguayan Football Association," Harrison said.

"We want to thank Osorio for all the good things he taught us in this short stay in national football. Also, we'd like to clarify that both he and us have complied fully with the contract that united us until today."
