Marcelo Fernandes says he was hired as coach of Santos after beating Vasco

Marcelo Fernandes reported on Sunday that the management of Santos decided to keep him in charge of the team until the end of the season, leaving the interim situation to stay permanently.

Marcelo Fernandes revealed the news shortly after the 4-1 thrashing of Vasco in the 25th round of the Brasileirão.

“Internally, (director of football Alexandre) Gallo talked to me and he confirmed, yes. I’m the coach of Santos today,” Marcelo Fernandes said at the post-match press conference in Vila Belmiro.

In two matches in charge of the team, after the dismissal of Diego Aguirre, Marcelo Fernandes achieved his second victory.

The coach took over Peixe on an interim basis on September 15 and beat Bahia 2-1 in his re-debut on the bench.

This is the fifth time that the deputy so far has led the Santos team in the management of President Andres Rueda.
