Cruzeiro rules out Fernando Diniz, and targets Reinaldo Rueda of Atlético Nacional to replace coach Deivid
On a high in the Brazilian market, coach Fernando Diniz, who leads Audax-SP in the final of the Campeonato Paulista, was discarded by the Cruzeiro board on Tuesday.
The name was raised behind the scenes of the club in recent days to take over the vacancy left by Deivid, but has already been ruled out by the board, who praised the coach's job, but said at this time he does not fit the desired profile. According to Globo Esporte, Cruzeiro will start more incisive contacts in the coming days for their new coach, and the intention is to announce the name at the beginning of next week. In the coming days, the board should make official proposals to coaches that are on their agenda. Reinaldo Rueda of Atlético Nacional is one of the names that attract Cruzeiro, and they like the coach's profile. He has extensive experience in international football, coaching the national teams of Colombia, Ecuador and Honduras. In recent days, Marcelo Oliveira, Ricardo Gomes [Botafogo] and Jorginho [Vasco] have turned down proposals to take the job at Cruzeiro.
