Sport announced, this Monday (27), the hiring of Lisca as the new coach of the Pernambuco club for the rest of the season. The 49-year-old has been without a club since he left Vasco in September last year.
However, with the tie, Sport reached the fourth game without a win in the Second Division. Of these matches, three resulted in equality and one in defeat. And the Pernambuco team’s next commitment will be against Cruzeiro – leader of the competition – away from home.
Even without Lisca on the edge of the lawn, Cruzeiro and Sport will face each other in a direct confrontation valid for the 15th round of Serie B. The duel is scheduled for this Tuesday (28), at 21:30, in Mineiro, in Belo Horizonte.
Assistant coach Csar Lucena will be responsible for putting the team on the field against Raposa.
Lisca’s last job
Lisca’s last job also took place in Serie B do Brasileiro, in 2021, in charge of Vasco. He left Cruz-Maltino after 12 matches played. During this period, there were four wins, one draw and seven defeats (36.11% success).
In Pernambuco, Lisca led Nutico in 2014 and 2015. In his first year with Timbu, the coach got involved in a controversy. He celebrated a victory for Sport’s rival by climbing the fences of Ilha do Retiro. The celebration was understood as a provocation by the red-black fans.
