A week to the day after appointing technician Alexi Stival to his bench, Corinthians announced on Thursday that he was parting ways with his new coach. ” Cuca (the nickname of Alexi Stival) left his position at the request of his family, to resolve personal matters. We wish him success in his further career.” can we read on the official website of the São Paulo club.
The arrival of the 59-year-old coach had been disputed among Corinthians supporters, because of a case dating from 1989. The striker from Gremio (Brazil), as well as two other players, had been sentenced in absentia to 15 months prison in Switzerland, for “indecent ***ault with use of violence” against a 13-year-old girl. They were in Bern for a friendly tournament in 1987. The conviction took place when they had already returned to Brazil, a country which does not extradite its nationals.
