Vanderlei Luxemburgo sacked by Cruzeiro after three months in charge

Former Real Madrid coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo was fired by Flamengo in May.

Former Real Madrid manager Vanderlei Luxemburgo has been sacked for the second time this season after Cruzeiro confirmed his dismissal on Monday afternoon.

The record five-time Brazilian champion was let-go a day after the Belo Horizonte club's disappointing 1-0 home loss to Santos, which dropped the two-time defending champs to 16th in the league table, one spot away from a relegation place.

Marcelo Oliveira brought two straight titles to Cruzeiro but a slow start this season sealed his fate.

SAO PAULO -- Cruzeiro have fired Marcelo Oliveira, the coach who led the team to the Brazilian league titles for the last two seasons, and hired Vanderlei Luxemburgo to him.

Marquinhos got the only goal of the game.

The first legs of the quarterfinals in the Copa Libertadores, South America's Champions League, all ended in single goal victories. But there is no doubt as to who was the big winner of the week.

There were 1-0 wins for Emelec of Ecuador over Tigres of Mexico, Santa Fe of Colombia over Internacional of Brazil and for Guarani of Paraguay over Racing of Argentina. But Brazilian side Cruzeiro's 1-0 win over River Plate of Argentina has much more value. Cruzeiro were the away side. All the others were...

Brazil introduces plan to renegotiate club debts, force fiscal responsibility

Fans of the Brazilian domestic game have had little to celebrate given the clubs' poor management over the years.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Brazil's government wants to let football clubs renegotiate $1.2 billion in debts but in the process force them to start spending more wisely.

The measure signed by President Dilma Rousseff on Thursday gives Brazilian clubs up to 20 years to pay what they owe to the federal government. In exchange, they must manage their finances more professionally.

Congress still has to approve the measure.

In order to take advantage of the government's favorable conditions, clubs have to commit...
