pressure by a coach

Although this is not the main reason for the visit, Vasco’s bad moment in the second division and pressure for a coach should be discussed with the executives. The interim leadership of Emilio Farrow, who completed his sixth consecutive game for the team in the loss to Bahia, has come under fire from both inside and outside the club.

Fans were vying for some of Emílio’s options, such as the line-up and changes during the match, as well as the board’s decision not to appoint an effective coach. These are questions that resonate among people inside the club: After the defeat in Salvador, Otto Carvalho, President of the General Assembly, used his social network to protest and request an “urgent technician”.

However, although SAF shares have yet to pass to 777, the decisions in club football are made by duo Paulo Brax and Luiz Mello, sporting director and CEO of Vasco SAF respectively. As in previous matches, the two were part of the delegation that went to Salvador.

Vasco has suffered two straight defeats for the first time in this Series B and has won only three of his last 12 games in Series B. And his fifth-place advantage, which came to nine, is now four.
