Staying alive? Life's going nowhere for Antônio Lopes

Staying alive? Life's going nowhere for Antônio Lopes

On Thursday afternoon, Vasco de Gama confirmed the departure of coach Antônio Lopes following the 2-0 home defeat to Coritiba. His dismissal had been announced by club directors on Wednesday evening but Vasco president Roberto Dinamite stepped in to stop the sacking. However, after a board meeting at Vasco today, it was confirmed that the 67-year-old had left the club. Former Vasco coach Tita is being lined up as a possible replacement. 

Things could get worse for Vasco after PSV scouts who were at the game said they were interested in Leandro Amaral and Wagner Diniz. The Dutch representatives though might make a move for Coritiba’s highly-rated, Keirrison.
