São Paulo turn to ex Monaco coach
São Paulo have wasted no time in replacing Muricy Ramalho and have announced the arrival of Ricardo Gomes.
The 44-year-old coach was most recently with Monaco but has experience with Brazil’s Olympic team and clubs such as PSG, Bordeaux, Flamengo and Fluminense.
The decision to bring in the ex centreback was apparently already being discussed by the directors before São Paulo’s exit from the Libertadores on Thursday. Club president Juvenal Juvêncio said that the team were not performing as expected and they had been looking at possible replacements for Ramalho for some time.
