Martino quits Paraguay

ESPNsoccernet staff

Gerardo Martino stepped down as coach of Copa America runners-up Paraguay on Friday after four years in charge.

Martino, whose side lost 3-0 to Uruguay in last weekend's Copa America final, also guided Paraguay to their first-ever World Cup quarter-final in South Africa last year, where they were beaten by eventual winners Spain.

The 48-year-old Argentinian had been linked with the top job in his home country, but the AFA opted instead for Alejandro Sabella. It is reported that Martino is set to be replaced by Francisco Arce.
