Víctor Hugo Andrada Canalis nicknamed Copito (born 25 December 1958 in Santa Fe) is a former Argentine football midfielder from the 1980s and 90s. He is currently a football manager for Club Atlético Ciclón in the Liga de Fútbol Profesional Boliviano.

Club career[edit]

In his native country he played professional football for Colón de Santa Fe, Gimnasia y Esgrima de La Plata, Racing Club de Avellaneda and Unión de Santa Fe, but the neighbouring country of Bolivia is where he spent most of his extensive career, playing for teams such as, Blooming, The Strongest, San José, Destroyers and Real Potosí. He also made a short spell in the Liga Chilena de Fútbol with Unión Española.

Managerial career[edit]

Following his retirement, "Copito" pursued a career as a football manager in Bolivia. In 2005 he took over club Real Potosí, but he was sacked due to poor results. In 2007 he made his comeback with Nacional Potosí, but the team fell short from winning the promotion after losing in a two game series to Guabirá. Nevertheless, Andrada got his recognition in 2008 as he took the team back to the Copa Simón Bolivar finals; only this time, his team came victorious. Therefore, gained promotion to the Liga de Fútbol Profesional Boliviano for the first time in the club's history.[1] The next year Andrada had an explosive start in first division with Nacional, leading the standings during the first ten weeks; however, the team began to stagger and eventually fell behind. On June 14, 2009, after 18 games into the season, Andrada resigned from his job in protest to constant intrusion of the board of directors in team affairs.[2] On July 6, 2009 he assumed his managerial duties with Blooming,[3] where he won the national league title of Clausura 2009, defeating Bolívar in the final match.[4]
