On Sunday, Corinthians announced the signing of Sylvinho, a 47-year-old Brazilian coach. Since leaving Lyon in France in 2019, the Brazilian coach has been without a club. He joins the club with a contract that will expire at the end of 2022.
Negotiations between Sylvinho and Corinthians began quietly last Saturday, after the conclusion of talks with Uruguayan Diego Aguirre, and quickly came to a positive conclusion.
Sylvinho won the Copa do Brasil 1995, Brasileiro 1998 and PaulistÃ£o 1995, 1997 and 1999 after being discovered at the founding of Timo.
He returned to the club as a technical assistant in 2013. In 2016, he took over the same position with the Brazilian team and was appointed the new coach of the Ligue 1 team, but his contract with Lyon was quickly terminated.
In 2016, Sylvinho was also to take over as coach of the Corinthians under the guidance of Roberto de Andrade, who is now the club’s director of football, but he preferred to stay in Europe to finish his UEFA courses. He was working as an assistant for Inter Milan at the time.
He also worked as an assistant for Cruzeiro and Sport, where he met Vagner Mancini, the Corinthians coach who was fired after his team’s elimination at PaulistÃ£o.
Doriva, will also join Sylvinho as an assistant coach and has already booked a flight to Brazil, from Portugal.
It would be interesting to see what becomes of Sylvinho at the club, especially with the Brazilian league just around the corner. The Corinthians will host Atletico-GO at home for the first game of the season.
