Botafogo Manager Forced To Resign


Oswaldo de Oliveira, who was recently admitted to a local hospital due to chest pains, has been forced to resign from his post as manager of Botafogo, stating that he was no longer fit enough to keep going in the job.

The 62 year old released a statement today and wished the club the best for the future. He said to ESPN, "It comes with great regret that I announce my resignation from my post at Botafogo.

"But with my recent healthcare, it would be unfair on the club to put them in this position," he said. "I wish the club all the best in the coming seasons."

Early frontrunners for the job are Celso Roth and Alexandre Gallo. Roth is the more experienced option but the club's board may look for a younger outlook in Gallo, who is the manager of Brazil Under 20's.

His skill at working with youngsters, something which Botafogo contain in big proportions, may just be the decisive factor which may persuade the club's hierarchy into offering him a contract.

The Botafogo board have yet to release a statement on where they are with their new manager chase, but many believe they need to pull out all stops for a new employee, with the upcoming season approaching thick and fast.

Mano Menezes Linked To Botafogo Vacancy


Former Brazil manager Mano Menezes has been linked to the vacant role at Botafogo. Since being sacked by Brazil and then surprisingly resigning from his position at Flamengo, Menezes has not been in a job for a while.

Many fans weren't particularly happy with the speculation, because of Menezes' affiliation with city rivals Flamengo as recently as last season. Many supporters of the club took to social media to voice their opinion.

Menezes has yet to release a statement regarding the matter, which is deepening speculation that he is currently in discussion with the Botafogo hierarchy. Rumours are also spreading that former World Cup winner Mazinho may have a chance at the job.

His only previous managerial experience is at Aris, Greece, in 2009, which could be the only stumbling point for the father of Bayern midfielder Thiago.

Thanks Pauker. de Oliveira has been nothing short of brilliant irl for Fogo. His style of plays revolves around Seedorf with free flowing movement and freedom of decision. I am going to try base it around his style of play in game because I think it will give us big success.

He is, and I hate his style of play. I'd like that to happen but I know it probably won't :P

Mazinho Linked To Botafogo


Mazinho is the latest manager linked to the vacant managerial role at Botafogo, after Celso Roth rejected that he was becoming the successor to previous manager Oswaldo de Oliveira.

With the new season approaching only a matter of weeks, many fans are urging the board to pull out all stops in order to find a replacement, saying that any later and the club will be left in limbo and may have performances effected.

The board at the club have tried to calm loyal fans, telling them that everything will be sorted in a few days time.

Mazinho, who won the World Cup with Brazil, has expressed his interest in the vacancy. "I liked football management, it never really worked at Aris, but I think if I get the time to work [at Botafogo], I can lead them to success," he told depor.pe.

The father of Bayern midfielder Thiago and Barcelona youth product Rafinha may have little experience, but that would not stop him from getting the job, according to numerous football experts.

Seedorf To Play And Manage


In a surprise turn of events, iconic Dutch midfielder Clarence Seedorf has become player-manager at Rio de Janeiro club Botafogo FR. Seedorf signed on a one-year deal and will become the successor to Oswaldo de Oliveira.

The 37-year old was introduced as the new manager in front of a packed press conference at the Engenhao, and revealed his vision to the journalists. "This club is going in the right direction," he started. "I know we can push for continental qualification this year, and so do the players."

After Oswaldo de Oliveira was forced to resign from the post at the Rio club following serious chest pains and health concerns, many thought that a more experienced manager would take the reins.

Seedorf though, who was born in Suriname, told FIFA.com earlier in the year that he was ready to manage after completing his UEFA Pro License. He also said he'd been working with youngsters at lower league clubs Boavista and Nova Iguaçu.

Seedorf said he will continue to promote the ball playing football that de Oliveira was putting in place and said that it could be the start of a new era for Brazilian football. "We don't have squads like Corinthians or Internacional.. but we have a system that is really going to change the way people play here.

"We have a young group of lads here, but they are also determined, they want to win."
