Previously an unknown name within Brazilian football, Portuguese coach Vítor Pereira became one of the most talked about names in the country after working for Corinthians and Flamengo. Without winning titles in both São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, the experienced coach returned to Europe without being missed by both fans.
Today in charge of Al Shabab, from Saudi Arabia, after long months free on the market, the coach returned to “haunt” Corinthians. According to information from journalist João Pedro Brandão, from ge.globo, the 55-year-old Portuguese has filed a labor lawsuit against his former club and is charging around R$7.5 million.

Vítor Pereira claims he did not receive funds relating to FGTS, vacations and 13th salary during the almost nine months of work at Parque São Jorge. The technician’s complaint was filed this week and is now pending before the Regional Labor Court 2, in São Paulo. Corinthians has not yet commented on the case.
Leaving the club at the end of 2022, the Portuguese cited family issues for not renewing his contract, but soon after agreed with Flamengo, generating revolt among the Corinthians and also the then president Duílio Monteiro Alves. “Persona non grata” at Alvinegro, the coach would accumulate disappointments at Rubro-Negro in 2023.
