O saints chose to fire the coach Fabian Bustos after elimination in Copa Sudamericana before Deportivo Táchira (Venezuela)which took place last Wednesday night, the 6th, in Vila Belmiro – on penalties, Peixe fell in the round of 16. After a strong protest of the fans and in the bad moment of the team, the board of Santos has preferred to dismiss the Argentine, who was in office since the beginning of March – the information is confirmed by the report of Young Pan Online. Under the coach’s command, Alvinegro Praiano played 30 matches, accumulating 9 wins, 13 draws and 8 losses. In addition to the early decline of competition from CONMEBOLBustos leaves the team in 10th position in Brasileirão and with almost no chance to qualify in Brazil Cup – in the first match against Corinthians, Santos was defeated 4 to 0, at the Neo Química Arena.
The one who also left Vila Belmiro was the idol Edu Dracena, who handed over the post of football manager after the elimination in the Copa Sudamericana. “I had been evaluating my departure for a long time and yesterday after the match I asked the president and handed over the position”, the former defender wrote on his Instagram account. In the post of October last year, Edu Dracena recalled his trajectory, praised his achievements and thanked the club for the opportunity. “I took the team into the relegation zone in Brazil 2021. In 11 rounds and with a fantastic recovery of the team, we reached tenth place and removed the risk of relegation. This year, after a bad Paulista, we are in the middle of the Brazilian table, we reached the last 16 of the Copa do Brasil and the South American Cup. And we failed. I am aware that Santos fans deserve more,” declared the Santos player. See the full text below.
Santos is having a bad moment, inside and outside the four lines. In a severe financial crisis and without a budget to make big investments in the transfer window, the management of Santos also did not see the team improve after exchanging Fábio Carille for Fabián Bustos. Proof of this is that, in Peixe’s last thirteen games, the team managed only one win against Juventude, one of the worst teams in the Brasileirão. With the negative sequence, Alvinegro from the beach returned to focus attention on the fight against contagion. Despite being in the middle of the table, the team from Baixada Santista has only two points more than Goias, which opens the relegation zone. The expectation, now, is that the Santos board will quickly find a coach to avoid the asphyxiation of last season. The next match is scheduled for this Sunday, the 10th, against Atlético-GO, in Vila Belmiro, for the 16th round of Nacional.
