Figueirense announce new manager as old one Fucks off to rivals

What sort of a name is 'Argel', anyway?

Brazilian club Figueirense have announced René Simões as their new coach, replacing Argel Fucks in the hot seat.

Fucks joined Campeonato Brasileiro Série A rivals Internacional last week, and since then Figueirense have had zero Fucks.

Thankfully Simões has now been secured as the new boss at the Scarpelão club.

Internacional finished six points above Figueirense last season – let’s hope they do so again, for Fucks’ sake.
