The 50-year-old coach won the 2023 Copa Libertadores, the Recopa Sudamericana and the Carioca Championship. Marcão will take charge of the team as interim while the new coach arrives.

“Coach Fernando Diniz left command of Fluminense FC this Monday. Diniz leaves as a legacy of his journey not only some of the most important titles in the history of our club, won in 2023 and 2024, but also the legacy of a very successful work in the first stage of his current journey, important lessons about his way of understanding football and a humanistic vision that together provide an enormous contribution to this sport,” Fluminense announced.

Fluminense and the streak that forced Diniz’s departure

After a stellar 2023 in which they managed to win the Libertadores and be finalists in the Club World Cup, 2024 did not start in the best way for Fluminense, despite the fact that they won the Recopa Sudamericana after beating Liga de Quito with Jhon Arias. So far this year they have played 34 games with a balance of 14 wins, 11 draws and 9 losses (4 of these in the last 4 games).

Although the performance is 50%, the leadership took into account the latest results to make the decision.

However, the situation in the Brasileirao was the trigger for their departure, as they have barely won 1 game, tied 3 and lost 7. They have conceded 19 goals and scored 10, which has them in the relegation zone.
