Some inspiration information on the relegation situation

Grondona wades in on relegation fight as Quilmes & Olimpo managers get angry

If Saturday wasn't already going to be a maddening enough day for fans of all the clubs involved in the relegation dogfight in Argentina, events on Friday made sure it would become just a little more nail-biting for fans of two clubs in particular.

Solari to Olimpo!
