Julio Daniel Asad (born 7 June 1953, in Buenos Aires, Argentina) is an Argentine former footballer and manager. As a player, he played as a midfielder, and participated with Argentina in Copa América 1975.

The nickname 'El Turco' is because Asad has Syrian and Lebanese ethnicity.[1] In Argentina, Arabs are usually mistakenly called Turks since they came to Argentina with Ottoman Turkish documents in the 1900s.[2] After he retired from professional football, he became a manager. He has coached clubs in Argentina, Ecuador, Saudi Arabia, and El Salvador. He's been very successful in his era of coaching.

He is the uncle of Omar Asad, who was also a successful player of Vélez, in the 90s.[3]
