Along with Eduardo Baptista, football executive Marcelo Barbarotti was also terminated. Hired in February 2021, the manager was one of those responsible for the formation of the cast that ensured his stay in last year’s Série A. However, he has not been able to keep up with the signings in the current season.

Still in the first quarter, with Juventude’s bad campaign for Gauchão, Barbarotti became the main target of criticism from the fans. With the delicate situation in the Brasileirão, the scenario worsened. After the defeat to Santos, the last match at Jaconi, most of the fans shouted “Out, Barbarotti”.

Behind the scenes, the Youth football board works to announce the new coach this Tuesday. The intention of the portfolio is that the professional is already on the field in the duel against São Paulo, on Sunday, at 18:30, in Morumbi.
