Palmeiras announces Anderson Barros as new soccer director

by Ace Damon

Ten days after resigning Alexandre Mattos, 43, Palmeiras announced on Wednesday (11) its new football director. Anderson Barros, 51, who was at Botafogo, will take over at alviverde board.

The professional signed a two-year contract with the paulista team. Barros holds a degree in Physical Education (UFRJ) and a bachelor's degree in law from Gama Filho, as well as a postgraduate degree in sports administration from Fundação Getúlio Vargas.

The leader built much of his career in soccer in Rio de Janeiro, where he went through three major clubs: Flamengo (2004-2005), Vasco (2017) and Botafogo (2009-2012 and 2018 and 2019).

He also performed for Figueirense (2006-2008), Bahia (2013), Coritiba (2014) and Vitória (2015-2016).

At Palmeiras, his mission will be to help the board in its search for a new coach. The club has been unmanaged since leaving Mano Menezes, fired along with Alexandre Mattos.

Before closing with Barros, Palmeiras tried to hire at least two other professionals, but could not agree with them.

Diego Cerri from Bahia declined the invitation. "On the afternoon of Tuesday (10), I informed the president of Palmeiras, Mauritius Galiotte, who, despite being honored with the invitation made to take over the club's football direction, made the decision to stay in Bahia, "he said, in a note published on the Bahia team's website.

Besides him, Rodrigo Caetano was another name sought by Palmeiras, but the director of Internacional refused any offer to leave the team from Rio Grande do Sul. "I informed the board of my decision and contacted the clubs that came to me to thank the invitations."
