The predecessor did not resist the two tricolor failures in the tournaments that had been set as a priority at the start of the season. Initially, it fell in the opening phase of the South American Cup against Liverpool, Uruguay.The drop of water, however, was the elimination in the Northeast Cup. Taking 1 to 0 of Sampaio Corrêa, on March 30, Bahia failed to overcome the first stage. So the coach himself accepted that he was no longer in a position to hold office and said goodbye to the club’s fans for failing to produce better results despite having more resources than their local rivals.In the Campeonato Baiano, the tricolor is in the final, but the decision with Bahia de Feira de Santana only begins next Sunday, April 14, at the rival’s home. This allowed Roger Machado to have the week off to meet the cast and prepare the team for this Tuesday’s meeting. At the meeting in Maceió, the team was led by assistant coach Claudio Prates.
Elimination in the Northeast Cup was not only fatal for the coach of Bahia. The same happened in the CRB, that managed to surpass the first phase. However, it fell on Saturday, April 6, in the semifinals. It was eliminated after a 1-1 draw against Santa Cruz in the penalty shootout.The meeting was very dramatic. Acting at home, the tricolor Pernambuco became common athlete less since the 22 minutes of the final stage. Marcos was expelled. The Alagoanos scored their goal in the 42nd minute with William Barbio. When Roberto Fernandes’ vacancy, qualification and job seemed secured, William Alves added the scorer, forcing him to charge maximum penalties to promote the tiebreaker.The result was the elimination of the CRB and the entry of Roberto Fernandes in the line of unemployment insurance. In that case, the decision was from the coach, who asked for the cap. The filling of the vacancy was fast. Marcelo Chamusca, a former Vitória coach, was announced on Sunday, April 7, but will not lead the team on Tuesday. Will only take over the team on Wednesday, April 10. His first game will be the classic against the CSA, in the Alagoano Championship decision.
