Gustavo Barros Schelotto (born 4 May 1973) is an Argentine former footballer who played as a midfielder. He was the assistant manager of Los Angeles Galaxy.

Playing career

Born in La Plata, Barros Schelotto came through the youth system at Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata with his twin brother Guillermo. Gustavo made his Primera debut against Club Atlético Vélez Sársfield on 4 October 1992.[1] They helped the team to win the Copa Centenario (the AFA Centenary Cup) in 1993.

In 1996, Guillermo was signed by Argentine giants Boca Juniors and Gustavo followed him there in 1997. He was part of 3 national leagues winning squads and helped the team to win the 2000 Libertadores Cup and the Copa Intercontinental later that year. Barros Schelotto played 65 games for Boca in all competitions, scoring 6 goals.

In January 2001, Barros Schelotto had a small La Liga stint, joining Spanish side Villarreal CF, before returning to Argentina to join Racing Club de Avellaneda where he won the Apertura 2001. He then went on to play for Rosario Central before returning to Gimnasia de La Plata.

In 2005 Barros Schelotto joined Peruvian outfit Alianza Lima, and in 2006 moved to Puerto Rico Islanders of the USL First Division in the United States where he played 23 games and scored 3 goals.

Coaching career

In March 2009, Barros Schelotto became the assistant manager of Gregorio Pérez at Club Olimpia.[2] He left the position together with Pérez in July. Pérez and Barros Schelotto continued together the next year, where they joined Club Libertad in April 2010 before leaving in July 2011.[3] In September 2011 they joined Peñarol still with Barros Schelotto as Pérez' assistant.[3]

In July 2012, Barros Schelotto was appointed as the assistant manager of Club Atlético Lanús in Argentine alongside his twin brother Guillermo Barros Schelotto who became the manager.[4] The two brothers finished the 2015 season before leaving to seek a fresh challenge elsewhere.[5] In March 2016, the two twin brothers joined Boca Juniors, with Guillermo as the manager and Gustavo as the assistant manager.[6] They left the club again at the end of the 2018 season.

On 9 January 2019, Gustavo and his twin brother joined Los Angeles Galaxy, again with Gustavo as the assistant manager under Guillermo.[7] They were relieved of their duties on October 29, 2020 due to Galaxy’s poor performance near the ladder part of the season.

Personal life

Barros Schelotto is the brother of Guillermo Barros Schelotto.[8][9][10] Their father, Hugo Barros Schelotto, was one of Gimnasia y Esgrima's presidents in the 1980s, while his nephews Juan, Salvador & Tomás Cataldi and Bautista Barros Schelotto are footballers.[8][9][10]
