Hernan Crespo has signed a two year deal with Sao Paulo as he comes their new coach.
Crespo has been linked with Sao Paulo for a few weeks and as we reported a few days ago, an announcement was expected to be made this week. The club confirmed through their Twitter page that the Argentine has signed with them to become the new coach.
The Argentine won the Copa Sudamericana, his first managerial trophy, last month with Defensa y Justicia before stepping down as coach. Still only 45 years of age, this is Crespo’s fourth managerial job. He has coached Modena in Italy, Banfield in Argentina, Defensa y Justicia also in Argentina and now Sao Paulo.
Histórico vencedor, alma copeira e DNA lutador.
¡Bienvenido, Hernán Crespo! 🇦🇷🇾🇪
