Hugo Daniel Tocalli (born 21 January 1948) is a former Argentine football goalkeeper and coach. He played over 400 games in Argentine football and went on to coach a number of clubs and Argentina U20.

Playing career

Tocalli started his playing career in 1970 with Deportivo Morón. In 1971, he joined Nueva Chicago where he played until 1974.

In 1975, Tocalli started his first spell with Quilmes before moving to Argentinos Juniors in 1977 where he was a team-mate of the young Diego Maradona.

Tocalli returned to Quilmes in 1978 and was part of the team that won the Metropolitano championship in 1978. He stayed with the club until 1983.

Tocalli had short spells with Unión de Santa Fe and Atlanta before retiring in 1985.

Managerial career

After retiring as a player Tocalli worked with the youth team of Vélez Sarsfield and had a brief stint as caretaker manager during the 1988–1989 season. In 1989, he became the manager of Quilmes. He then had spells in charge at Tigre and Deportivo Italiano before returning to Quilmes in 1994.

In 1994, Tocalli became involved with the Argentine youth team, alongside José Pékerman.[1] After Peckerman became the national team coach, Tocalli took over as Under-20 coach, leading the team to the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup title. In October 2007, he resigned as head coach of the U-20 team and, in December 2007, he became the manager of Velez Sarsfield.[2] On 21 April 2010 the Coach has left Colo-Colo due to family reasons.[3] Quilmes Atlético Club hired Tocalli as coach on 3 June 2010.[4] However, he resigned after the 11th fixture of the 2010–11 season, as Quilmes was unable to win any games under his coaching (6 draws, 5 defeats).[5]
