Unfortunately, the results didn’t come and our goal was results in the very short term. Since that didn’t happen, I’m leaving the club. I wish the club a great championship final. That I get access to Serie A playing better games, which I couldn’t do with me. It was an opportunity that I sought for 30 years, which was to be at a club like Vasco, but the time has come to have the manhood to recognize that the work didn’t work. So, I made the decision and I’m here to thank all Vasco fans and all employees. I hope to be able to return to this great club in another situation.
