Pedro Correia quits as Farense coach

Pedro Correia has stepped down as coach of Farense after being offered a leading job at an unnamed Chinese club. He is being replaced temporarily by physical trainer Antero Afonso.
The news was confirmed on Monday (November 24) by Farense president António Barão.
“Farense let him (Pedro Correia) go after coming to a two-part agreement. We always like to go all the way with a coach but sometimes that doesn’t happen. He felt like he had a more valuable project both personally and professionally,” Barão told Lusa news agency.
Questioned on whether or not he already had another coach in mind, the president said he was not going to “rush” a decision.
“We have two qualified coaches to take over the transition period. We are going to choose calmly,” he said.
Correia, who took hold of Farense in June, leaves the team in a delicate position, currently placed 14th in the Portuguese Segunda Liga and facing a winless streak of seven matches.
The last time the Faro-based club won a match was on October 1, when it travelled to Olhão to beat rival Olhanense 3-1.
Farense’s next game is this Sunday (November 30) at Estádio São Luís in Faro, where it will take on Trofense, currently placed last in the Segunda Liga.
