Coach Hernan Crespo has just left Sao Paulo. After a 0-0 draw, in the 24th round of Brazil, against Cuiaba, the club decided by mutual agreement to end the relationship with the 46-year-old Argentine.
In Sao Paulo since February of this year, Crespo had a great time at Tricolor Paulista. In Paulistão 2021, the coach won the title over rival Palmeiras and broke the 15-year taboo without a state championship.
Since then, the coach has experienced turbulent moments at the club, being eliminated in the Libertadores by the same contender in which he was crowned state champion, knocked out in the Copa de Brazil for Fortaleza, as well as courting the relegation zone in Brazil.
There were 53 games under the leadership of Sao Paulo, with 24 wins, 19 draws and 10 defeats.
