Luis Zubeldia has been named to replace Alfio Basile as coach of Argentine club Racing.

Basile resigned on Saturday after a humiliating 4-1 loss against archrival Independiente. Club officials said Monday that Zubeldia would take over immediately.

Racing is one of Argentina's most popular clubs but has struggled in recent seasons. It is near the bottom of this season's first-division standings with only nine points from 10 matches.

The 31-year-old Zubeldia will be the youngest coach in the first division and arrives from Ecuador club Barcelona.
