BUENOS AIRES, March 29 (Xinhua) -- Boca Juniors have parted ways with manager Hugo Ibarra after a lackluster start to Argentina's domestic football season, the Buenos Aires club said on Wednesday.

The 48-year-old will be replaced on an interim basis by assistant coach Mariano Herron, according to a Boca statement.

"The reserve coaching staff is going to take charge for now, hopefully only for a few days," club director Mauricio Serna said.

"It's not easy, but we are already working to bring in a new head coach."

Ibarra led Boca to 20 wins, seven draws and nine defeats after replacing Sebastian Battaglia last July.

Boca are currently 14th in Argentina's 28-team Primera Division standings with 11 points from eight games.
