Petit announced this Tuesday morning, to the Belenenses squad, the decision to abandon the project, you know. More football. The coach had been dissatisfied for several weeks with some situations related to the organization of professional football and decided to break the link that had lasted since the 2019/20 season.
After the hard-fought victory at Berço, for the Portuguese Cup, Petit was even more convinced that this was the right time for separation. The meeting with Rui Pedro Soares, on Monday, did not change his mind, despite the director’s attempts.
In the coming days, the 45-year-old trainer will negotiate with the blue SAD the terms of the contract termination.
Petit leaves Belenenses after having managed to keep the team in the I League for two consecutive seasons. After another summer of many entries and exits in the squad, the team’s limitations were clearly highlighted in this initial phase of 2021/22.
Belenenses have four points in the first eight games of the League and have not yet won; in the League Cup he was eliminated by Mafra and in the Portuguese Cup he is still in the competition.
