After that, Galo overcame the opponent in the first leg, but then returned to show unstable performances and not compatible with the ones we were following.

Who arrives?

Now, Atlético-MG begins the saga to find an immediate replacement that can lead the team in the fight for leadership of the Brasileirão, in addition to the dispute of the quarterfinals of Libertadores, against palm trees. Renato Gaucho and Odair Hellmann were the names considered for the position, but according to information from the “GE” website, the chances of success are minimal.

Besides them, Jorge Sampaoliwhich has been free on the market since leaving the Olympique de Marseille, is the other option requested by the fans on social networks. When he was in charge of Galo, the Argentine took third place in the 2020 Brasileirão, and recently followed the duel between Flamengo 2×0 Atlético-MG at Maracanã, for the Copa do Brasil.
