Original title: 71-year-old Evergrande heroic coach re-employed! Missed the chance to return to the Super League, once rejected the national football + close to signing Guoan
In the early morning of October 16th, Beijing time, Cruzeiro officially announced that Scolari will be the new coach of the team. The two sides signed until the end of 2022. This means that the Evergrande meritorious coach missed his return to coaching in the Super League. He once rejected the National Football Team and was close to signing Beijing Guoan, but he failed. Now Scolari is finally employed again after being unemployed for more than a year.
Regarding Scolari's return to coaching, as early as October 10th, the Fox Brazilian Sports Channel reported that he was ready to coach again. Now in less than a week, there is finally news. Cruzeiro of Barracks Club announced that Scolari has taken office, and the contract is not short, but Scolari's pressure is not small, because Cruz dropped from Barra to Barra last season. Cerro, I hope Scolari will lead the team back to Barra. Cruzeiro has a poor record. After 15 rounds, he has achieved 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses, ranking 15th in the standings, close to the relegation zone.
Now Scolari officially coaches Cruzeiro, which means that his plan to return to the Super League has been stranded, and he was very close to signing Beijing Guoan for a while.
After the vacancy of the national football coach last year, Scolari became one of the favorites, but the "Beijing Youth Daily" revealed that Scolari came to Beijing and expressed his attitude that he would not consider coaching the Chinese men's football team for the time being. If he has the opportunity, he will first coach Beijing Guoan. The reason is that Scolari believes that Beijing Guoan is a club with a deep foundation and a positive atmosphere in China. At that time, Scolari came to Beijing for a short stay and met with an old friend of his own.
However, in the end Beijing Guoan chose to renew the contract with Genesio, and Scolari did not succeed in signing the contract, so he continued to stay at home. As the meritorious coach of Guangzhou Evergrande, Scolari led the team to 7 championships, including 3 Chinese Super Leagues, 1 FA Cup, 2 Super Cups, and 1 AFC Champions League. This is the largest number of Evergrande’s leading team wins. The coach of Scolari has expressed his desire to return to China to coach on many occasions, but he did not have the opportunity. Scolari has been free from get out of class last September since Palmeiras.
Now after signing Cruzeiro, Scolari will start to have a good time again, because now Cruzeiro is far away from the top of the championship. If you don’t work hard to improve the ranking, there will be no chance to return to Brazil this season. , Also faces the danger of being downgraded again.
