New Boca Juniors coach Carlos Bianchi says he will try to convince popular midfielder Juan Roman Riquelme to return.

The mercurial Riquelme left the club five months ago after Boca lost the final of the Copa Libertadores to Brazilian club Corinthians.

Bianchi spoke to celebrating fans at Boca's La Bombonera on Wednesday, two days after the 63-year-old Bianchi was named to replace Julio Falcioni.

This will be Bianchi's third stint coaching Boca. He won the Copa Libertadores three times with Boca, and also won Latin America's top club title with fellow Buenos Aires club Velez Sarsfield.
