To remove Carlos Carvalhal from Braga, Atletico will have to pay the Portuguese coach’s dismissal penalty
After seeing difficulties in reaching an agreement with Jorge Jesus, Atlético turned their attention to Carlos Carvalhal. The Braga coach himself admitted receiving an invitation from the board of directors of Alfinegro Club to take over the position that Coca left on the 28th.
“The truth is that I have received good invitations throughout my career, including now from Flamengo and Atletico Mineiro, as has already been announced,” he said in an interview with Radio Marca.
Carlos Carvalhal has a contract with Braga. Thus, it will be necessary to pay the termination fine so that he can leave the Portuguese club and take over the leadership of Atlético.
The 56-year-old coach has built most of his career in Portuguese football. In his home country, he headed up Sporting between 2009 and 2011. He has also spent time in Turkey and the United Kingdom.
To date, Carvalal has only two titles in his career. In the 2020/2021 season, he was the Portuguese Cup champion with Braga. In 2007/2008, he won the League Cup, via Vitoria de Setúbal.
