Dorival named new Vasco coach

Rio de Janeiro: Brazilian soccer club Vasco da Gama have named Dorival Junior as the club`s new coach following the resignation of Paulo Autuori.

Dorival will be officially presented to the media at Vasco`s Sao Januario headquarters in Rio de Janeiro Thursday, reports Xinhua.

His appointment comes a day after Autuori quit the club, citing "serious" administrative problems and constant wage delays.

Dorival coached Vasco in 2009 and guided the club back to Brazil`s top-flight after relegation in 2008.

He has since coached Santos, Atletico Mineiro, Internacional and Rio de Janeiro giants Flamengo, who sacked the 51-year-old in March after he refused a pay cut.
