Andrés Guglielminpietro (born 10 April 1974 in San Nicolas, Buenos Aires province), nicknamed Guly, is a former Argentine football player and current manager of Douglas Haig. A midfielder, he has been capped for the Argentina national football team, and represented his country at the 1999 Copa América.

Club career[edit]

Guglielminpietro's club career reached its peak at the Italian club A.C. Milan, where he shared the limelight with some of the game's most notable stars, such as Paolo Maldini, Demetrio Albertini, Roberto Donadoni, Alessandro Costacurta, Leonardo, George Weah and Oliver Bierhoff. Guly scored the winning goal against Perugia that won the 1998–99 Scudetto. His play declined during the following seasons due to injuries, and he was transferred to different clubs around the globe, never recovering his top ability. His first port of call after leaving Milan was at rivals Internazionale whom he joined in 2001. He scored his first and what tunred out to be only goal for the club in a UEFA Cup tie against FC Brașov on 27 September 2001.[1]

In 2004, he won the Copa Sudamericana with Boca Juniors. After a short spell back in his youth club Gimnasia in 2005, he retired and was added in June 2007 to the coaching team of cross-town rivals Estudiantes de La Plata, under coach Diego Simeone, with a third former Argentine international, Nelson Vivas, as assistant coach. Guly also took up the same position with the same coaching staff at River Plate. Diego Simeone left Estudiantes de La Plata in December 2007 claiming a supposed lack of the club's commitment to sign appropriate reinforcements for the 2008 Clausura and Copa Libertadores. On 27 February 2014, Guly was named as manager of the Primera B Nacional side Douglas Haig.

International career[edit]

At international level, Guly was capped 6 times for Argentina, although he was unable to score a goal. He was a remember of Argentina's 1999 Copa América squad that reached the quarter finals of the tournament, losing out to eventual champions and South-American rivals Brazil.
