Sergio Neveleff enters his third season as an international scout for the New England Revolution after joining the technical staff in December 2018. Neveleff brings two decades of extensive scouting knowledge and experience, much of it in Argentina’s SuperLiga, including stints as the Director of International Development with Estudiantes de La Plata (2003-08) and as a founding member of the International Youth Scouting and Development Program at Racing Club de Avellaneda (2013-14). Since 2014, he has been working as an independent scout representing multiple clubs across the world.

The Argentina native began working with U.S. Soccer in 2008 following his time with Estudiantes. His first role with the federation was assisting current U.S. Soccer Technical Advisor and then-scout Scott Spencer, before later being hired to establish continuing education programs for A-licensed coaches in Argentina and Brazil. In that capacity, Neveleff led multiple tours of Argentine soccer experiences for international coaches, helping them develop a better understanding of the game in his native country.
