This Wednesday (13), the fans of the São Paulo was taken by surprise with the technician’s dismissal Hernan Crespo, who finishes a job of about eight months at the club, with a title from São Paulo in his bag. For Tricolor, the Argentine led the team in 57 games, with 24 wins, 21 draws and 12 defeats, and 54.4% of success. See below five names that are free on the market.

1. Rogério Ceni

The biggest idol in the history of São Paulo, Ceni has been without a club since July this year, when he left Flamengo after about eight months. After 25 years as a goalkeeper, the spell as coach of Tricolor was shorter: just six months, between January and July 2017. In Fortaleza and Flamengo, he accumulated three State titles, a Northeast Cup, a Series B, a Super Cup of Brazil and a Brazilian Championship.

2. Mano Menezes

Fired from Al-Nassr, from Saudi Arabia, after five months, Mano hasn’t accumulated good recent work in Brazilian football. In 2019, he passed by Palmeiras, and was fired after losing 3-1 to Flamengo at home. In Bahia, in 2020, Mano had about 36% of success in 24 games, leaving the club in 17th position in the Brazilian Championship.

3. Roger Machado

With a career of few titles, Roger accumulates failures in important clubs in Brazilian football, with ups and downs. The most recent was by Fluminense, this year. He was fired after being eliminated from Libertadores for Barcelona de Guayaquil, with the team in the 15th round of the Brazilian Championship.

4. Luiz Felipe Scolari

World champion in 2002 and with spells at Chelsea and the Portuguese national team, Felipão has lived ups and downs since 2010, when he returned to Palmeiras for the first time. Since then, he has accumulated titles in the Copa do Brasil and Brasileirão with Verdão, and failures such as 7-1 against Germany and the weak campaign commanding Grêmio in this Brazilian Championship.

5. Lisca

Known as “Lisca Doido”, he was successful in clubs with less investment, such as Náutico, Ceará and América-MG. Tickets for big clubs, however, were not good. In 2016, Lisca was hired to save Internacional, and was not able to, although there were only three games left in the competition. This year, commanding Vasco, he left the club in ninth position, with about 36% of success.
