Hired to lead the team on January 29, after Bota had fallen to the Brazilian Championship’s Serie C, Gallo was trusted by the club’s executive director, Paulo Pelaipe, and participated in the assembly of this season’s squad.
Therefore, it is surprising that the commander’s resignation still has a good part of Paulistão to be disputed. Pantera’s board is looking for a new coach and a name is due to be announced later on Thursday and, if all goes well, to be presented as early as Friday.
Behind the scenes, the comment is that the board did not feel the prospect of changing course in Paulistão, especially after the 1-0 victory in training game against Monte Azul, Series A2 team, last Wednesday.
Botafogo is getting ready to face Ituano, in Itu, for the fifth round of the State Championship, paralyzed since March 15th because of the program to fight the pandemic of the new coronavirus in São Paulo.
