Botafogo’s negotiations with Braga for coach Artur Jorge reached an impasse. The Portuguese club is playing hard to release the coach in the middle of the season for the prices offered by John Textor.

“It’s going to be an opportunity for him”, says Loffredo about Artur Jorge at Botafogo

According to the Portuguese press, the difficulty of the Portuguese in reaching an agreement with the target to succeed the current commander, Daniel Sousa, of Arouca, contributed to the club’s halt in the deal.

Artur Jorge has a contract until mid-2025 with Braga and a fine of 10 million euros (R$53.9 million, at current prices). Braga had an agreement in place with Daniel Sousa, from Arouca. However, the club does not want to release the professional during the Portuguese Championship dispute without financial compensation.

The expectation was that Artur Jorge would arrive in Rio de Janeiro next Tuesday. He must still coach Braga in the match against Portimonense, this Monday, at 4:30 pm, and must provide clarification on the situation after the match at a press conference.

Artur spent practically his entire career at Braga. He started with the Guerreiros do Minho under-19 team in 2019, played for the B team, but left in 2013 to coach the Tirsense professional team, in the lower divisions of Portugal. He returned to Braga, to lead the under-15 team, in 2017. From there, he rose step by step until reaching the main team in 2022.

Braga is currently 4th in the Portuguese Championship, with 53 points – five behind Porto, in 3rd. The team played in the Champions League this season, but came third in a group with Real Madrid and Napoli and went on to the Europa League, where they were eliminated by Qarabag in the first knockout stage.
