Joao Carlos Pereira, Freddy Adu’s coach at Belenenses, given the sack

Joao Carlos Pereira, who joined Belenenses as head coach at the start of the season and managed only one win in fourteen league games, has been fired, goal.com is reporting:

Liga Sagres outfit Belenenses have decided to part company with head coach Joao Carlos Pereira with immediate effect. Pereira got the sack following a string of disappointing results.

Pereira arrived at Belenenses at the start of the season on a two-year contract. However, just one win in fourteen league matches sees the Lisbon club at the wrong end of the table facing a battle against relegation.

The board hopes to have a new man in place by the time the players return from their Christmas break in the New Year. Dauto Faquira and Antonio Conceicao are two names that have been mentioned as possible successors to Pereira.

Considering Belenenses’ complete lack of anything resembling offensive creativity, let’s hope Pereira’s replacement at least gives Adu a shot. In his only recent appearance–10 minutes in a 2-2 draw against Maritomo–Adu played well, and would have assisted on a third goal had Lima been able to finish the golden opportunity that Adu provided him.
