Football. Other leagues. Santos – São Paulo.
“Santos” under the direction of Dorival Júnior this season, too, did not catch the stars from the sky. “Fish”, though passed a group of the Copa Libertadores, but they failed in the state championship, and in Serie A after four rounds fell in the lower strata of the standings. As a result, Dorival and “Santos” terminated the contract by mutual consent, and “fish” started coaching Levira Kulp. That is thanks to the good work of the last “Santos” and moved to the top of the table, and on Thursday in the Copa Libertadores beat “Atlético Paranaense” – 3: 2.
In the “São Paulo” we decided to take the risk to entrust the post of head coach of its long legend – Rogério Ceni. Such a move, no doubt, was quite nice, because the goalkeeper is clearly deserved. However, Rogerio this job was too complex. Under the leadership of Seni “Sao Paulo” flew from all tournaments in which he participated, and in Serie A gradually dropped into the relegation zone. By the derby with the “Santos”, “tricolor” fit with shestimatchevuyu lose-lose series.
