O São Paulo does not live a good time in the season. Already eliminated from Libertadores, the team is just one point from the relegation zone of the Brazilian championship. This Wednesday, Tricolor visits the strength, for the return match of the quarterfinals of the Brazil’s Cup. Julio Casares, president of the club, guaranteed the permanence of coach Hernán Crespo, even in the event of elimination from the tournament.
“To put away any unfortunate speculation, I reaffirm that regardless of the results, coach Hernan Crespo will normally follow our planning in charge of our team. We will follow our professional conviction and what was outlined with the football department”, he wrote on his social networks.
In the first match, at Morumbi, the match ended in a draw at 2-2. The hosts even opened up a two-goal lead on the scoreboard, but conceded the tie in the final stretch of the game.
Crespo was hired in February of this year and, right away, won the Paulistão, putting an end to a nine-year fast without Tricolor titles. However, the São Paulo players suffered from several injuries, which resulted in a drop in the team’s performance.
