Julio César Toresani (born December 5, 1967 in Santa Fe) is a former Argentine football midfielder. Toresani currently is a coach.

Club career[edit]

Known as El Huevo ("The Egg") because of his egged shaped head, he played as a right midfielder and was known for his rough playing style. Many fans consider Toresani to be a traitor in football terms, since he played for both Boca Juniors and River Plate, which are rival teams, as well as for Colón de Santa Fe and Unión de Santa Fe, also rivals. Toresani is one of very few players to have played for all three of the biggest teams in Argentina; he has appeared for River Plate, Boca Juniors and Independiente.

Managerial career[edit]

Colón fans, though, hold him in high esteem. Julio coached Colón until August 28, 2006, when he was fired because of the team's poor results, losing all four games he played. In 2007, Toresani took over Aldosivi from Mar del Plata, team which he managed until mid October of that year, when he was dismissed from his duties.[1] In January 2009, Toresani agreed to undertake a new challenge in his coaching career, and relocated to La Paz to be the manager of Bolivian popular team The Strongest.[2] On May 31, 2009, the club announced the rupture of the relations with Toresani, after he decided to resign from his responsibilities.[3]
