Who Am I?

My name is Marcos Evangelista de Moraes, but in football, I go by the name of Cafu. I played as a full-back in my senior career, venturing from my home city to Europe, becoming one of the most well-know footballers in the 90s and 00s.
I was born in São Paulo, and it was there I started my footballing career. São Paulo has done so much for me, and it is the club I owe my career to. Despite my love and loyalty to the club, I felt I was destined for more, I wanted to play in the Champions League. I joined Spanish club Zaragoza before travelling to Italy and playing for Palmeiras, Roma and Milan. To Brazilians, though, I am best known for my presence in the national team, where I hold the current record of caps, 142.

Why São Paulo?

It is the place my career as a player began, and I could think of nowhere better to start my career as a manager. I want to bring success to a club, that, at the moment are in a bad financial state and haven't won the title for 6 years.


Credit to Blue for the layout idea. :)
São Paulo :) good luck mate! gonna be an awesome story
I love a good Brazil story, good luck :)
A story in Brazil should be intresting. Good luck Toon :)
Good luck Toon, should be interesting :)
Good luck mate! Buy Neymar ;) hahahahha
It seems everyone is starting their story with "Who Am I?" and "Why (insert club name here)?" nowadays. Not that I have any problem with it but it would be great to see more originality, but since you've already started it like this it's fine I suppose.

Will be interesting to see a Sao Paulo story especially one with Cafu. We don't get much Brazil stories, so I'm excited to see how this one turns out :)

Renewal Claims Denied By Franco
Current São Paulo manager, Ney Franco called a press conference to announce that he will not be renewing his short-term contract at Morumbi that he signed earlier this year to take the helm of the club after Emerson Leão was sacked.

"I and the board have discussed my future here, and we mutually decided that I will not be renewing my contract." Franco told the press in an oddly upbeat fashion. "I've enjoyed my time here but I want to move on to something new, and, the board would like a new, different type of manager."

Club President, Juvenal Juvêncio, was cornered by press as he headed home for work, but he happily answered their questions, wishing to get his reasons out to public. "I think that Ney is a top manager and he'll go to a top club, but I, and the rest of the board, would like to bring in some new life. I'd like a bit of experience, but my main aim is to find someone the fans will like."

Franco has somewhat of a reputation for short-lived spells at clubs, having managed 8 teams in total- none of them for over a season. Despite this, he has a relatively good reputation, it is a common theory among fans that he prefers short stints, liking to have a taste of sport all across Brazil, and beyond.

Franco's successor is currently unknown, but there are some evidence that may link ex São Paulo coach, Paulo Autuori to the job. Autuorti was pictured speaking with Juvêncio, meaning it would take a huge coincidence that he wasn't interested in the hob. Autuori recently left the coaching spot at the Qatar national team.

Another rumor that has been mainly spread across the internet, was that ex-São Paulo player and the most capped Brazilian player of all time, Cafu, may well also be looking to be hired, as he was spotted in a cafe close by Morumbi, though, to date, Cafu has no coaching experience.

What remains is speculation, but for certain, this conundrum will be resolved come New Years Day.
Good writing, I wonder who'll be the manager. Probably Autuori :P
