Former international Crespo leaves as coach of São Paulo

Former Argentina international Hernán Crespo no longer serves as coach of Brazilian football club São Paulo. The 46-year-old South American has to resign because of the disappointing results. He signed a contract in February of this year until the end of 2022.

At the beginning of this year, Crespo led the modest Defensa y Justicia to the overall victory in the Copa Sudamericana, comparable to the Europa League. He then won the regional title in the state of São Paulo in May with his new club São Paulo.

In the Brazilian and South American competition, however, the performances have been disappointing in recent months. Crespo’s team dropped to thirteenth place in the Brazilian championship and failed to win in the last five games. The club management then decided to break with the triple World Cup participant (1998, 2002 and 2006).

A month ago, the board also terminated the employment of Brazilian international Dani Alves. The former player of Sevilla, FC Barcelona, ​​Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain demanded that the management first clear a significant payment arrears in his salary before he would start training and playing for São Paulo again. After Alves rejected a settlement, he was suspended.

It is more common in Brazil for clubs to fail to meet their payment obligations to players or trainers and then break off cooperation.
