A Portuguese to replace Sampaoli at Santos
Jorge Sampaoli is immediately replaced by Santos leaders. They have selected the new head coach, naming Portuguese Jesualdo Ferreira, who was free for six months after his departure from Al Saad’s cataracts.
It’s the 73-year-old’s choice for Santos left vacant by Argentine Sampaoli (removed a few days ago) as the new coach signed for a season.
Ferreira has a rich CV as a coach, mostly with the most popular Portuguese teams such as Porto, Braga and Sporting, while most recently leading teams such as Zamalek and Al Sadd.
