Can European managers succeed in South America?

“‘Would any South American nation,’ asks reader Craig Thompson, ‘consider appointing a European coach (specifically Italian), and would the coach succeed with a South American team?’ There are a few precedents here. Jack Greenwell from England took Peru to victory in the 1939 Copa America. More recently, Xavier Azkargorta from Spain qualified Bolivia for the 1994 World Cup. And at around the same time Dussan Draskovic from Montenegro played an important part in the early stages of Ecuador’s rise.” (BBC – Tim Vickery)
