Brazilian Serie A Champions Palmeiras Announce Baptista As Their New Head Coach

Brazilian champions Palmeiras have announced Eduardo Baptista as their coach for the next two seasons.

The 46-year-old replaces Alexi Stival, who stepped down after guiding the outfit to their first top-flight title in 22 years last month.

“I’m very happy to join a club of this stature,” Baptista told the official Palmeiras website on Friday.

“I’m going to be replacing a coach who did a brilliant job. My task is to carry on that work in pursuit of more titles.”

Baptista’s coaching career has included spells in charge of Sport Recife, and Ponte Preta.
