The negative results, which followed after the derby, caused coach Gustavo Morínigo to be fired. The club did not take long and soon announced Guto Ferreira as a substitute.
So far, the coach has commanded Coxa in eight matches, won four and lost four – 50% utilization. However, without breaking the fast outside the house. The club is the only one that did not win as a visitor in Serie A.
Igor Paixão for sale, change of role
In August, striker Igor Paixão received a proposal and was negotiated with Feynoord, from the Netherlands. The transaction was closed at 8 million euros (R$ 41.6 million, at the current price) for 80% of the economic rights.
The winger had been Alviverde’s highlight this year. In 37 games, he scored ten goals and scored ten assists – he was the athlete with the most goals in Coxa.
The exit opened a space in the attack, which was occupied by Alef Manga and Fabricio Daniel. With Guto Ferreira, the pair scored seven of the team’s last eight goals. A combination that has worked and that is Coritiba’s bet for the classic.
