While on vacation in his motherland Brazil, Francisco ‘Chico’ dos Santos received an email from the Peruvian Federation stating effective immediately he is no longer the coach of the women’s national team.
Termination via email? How
While the Federation insists that Chico’s contract is only good for a certain number of months (like 5 months?) even though they revealed sometime last year that he’s the chosen one to coach the women’s team up to the 2016 Olympics, Chico is shocked and frustrated with the news.
Take note, sources say that the Federation is only making up excuses.
“They hired him up to the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. If they didn’t, then why did they approve his vacation to Brazil and even bought him a round trip ticket? After they emailed him, Federation officials canceled his return ticket.” according to our source.
To control the damage, Peruvian volley officials stated that Chico’s contract was only good until December 31st, 2012 and they’re NOT going to make any further statements in regards to Chico’s case.
We respect their decision but why would they fire someone via email? Perhaps a face to face meeting behind closed doors would’ve been more ideal and more professional. Just our opinion.
We can totally smell some DRAMA brewing in the next few days….
