Coach Hernán Crespo left his position at the head of São Paulo of Brazil in a decision by “common agreement”, according to the club reported on its official website.
After his successful stint at Defensa y Justicia, where he won the 2020 South American Cup, Crespo ended up in San Pablo. His first stage was acceptable, but the last season was below expectations.
The former River forward led the “Tricolor” in 53 games with 24 wins, 19 draws and ten losses (57.23%) and won the 2021 Paulista Championship.
“São Paulo thanks the professionals for the work and dedication shown throughout the period in which they defended our colors, and for winning the state title, a triumph that had not been achieved since 2005. The Club will open a search process for the new coach “, informed the São Paulo institution.
Crespo’s coaching staff included Juan Branda (assistant), Alejandro Kohan and Gustavo Sato (physical trainers), Gustavo Nepote (goalkeeping coach) and Tobías Kohan (performance analyst).
San Pablo is 13th in the Brasileirao with 30 points, with a difference of three over Bahia (27) which is in the relegation zone along with Sport Recife (26), Gremio (23) and Chapecoense (12).
