Luxemburgo leaves Corinthians after 38 matches, in which he achieved 14 wins, 12 draws, 12 defeats and a success rate of 48% during approximately five months of work. Timao ranks tenth in the Brazilian League.

The coach’s farewell was met with boos again at the New Quimica Arena last Tuesday. The same thing has already happened in recent matches, against Gremio and Botafogo.

Who should be the new Corinthians coach?

There has been speculation about Luxembourg’s departure in recent weeks, mainly due to the team’s poor performances in the Brazilian League and the Copa Sudamericana. Timao had decided to keep him during the FIFA deadline, at the beginning of this month, but he has now changed his mind.

Now, the board of directors is racing against time to appoint a new coach. Tite is the preferred name of president Duilio Montero Alves, but the coach refused to return a few months ago and is now also in goal for Flamengo. Another name being considered at the club is Mano Menezes.
