Cruzeiro: Fans do not approve of Autuori as coach and there are criticisms of Ronaldo

With the resignation of the Portuguese Pepa as coach, Paulo Autuori, current technical director of Cruzeiro, is the favorite to take over the role at the Minas Gerais club. On social networks, the Celeste fans showed their indignation with the possible conservative choice for the 67-year-old professional. There were also criticisms of Ronaldo, owner of the team’s SAF.

Fans claim that choosing Autuori repeats past mistakes and could cost with the team’s fall to the second division. At this moment, Cruzeiro has 25 points in 21 rounds, four more than Santos, the first team in the relegation zone of the Brazilian Championship. But the Celeste club is still in 12th place, with four teams between it and Z4.

The criticisms of Ronaldo and his management at the club are related to speech. By switching from the associative model to the SAF, the fans hoped that the choices would be really technical and not need to appeal to experienced Brazilian football coaches, such as Autuori. Fans agree that the club was right with the hiring of Paulo Pezzolano and Pepa, but that the possible current decision shows “amateurism”.

It’s not just criticism: part of Cruzeiro fans trust Autuori

“Best possible name”, wrote a Cruzeirense. There is confidence in some fans due to the experience of Autuori, a coach for over 40 years, who can help in this delicate moment for the club close to Z4. They also used the professional’s work at Athletico-PR as an example, where he was also a director and, sometimes, appeared as a coach to save the end of the season.

One of the reasons for Pepa’s departure was poor group management. Taking into account the history of the possible new coach, issues of relationship with the cast may be left behind.
