Matías Rojas (Corinthians)

Recruited as a strong reinforcement, the Paraguayan was thrilled to make his debut in the Copa do Brasil quarter-finals and later took over the number 10 shirt from Róger Guedes. However, he ended the season on the bench and did not score a goal.

Arturo Vidal (Athletico-PR)

A world star, he arrived in Furação after leaving Flamengo with starting status. However, Vidal only played nine matches and suffered injuries.

From Ricardo (Cruzeiro)

Hired with a mission to save Cruzeiro from relegation, he was fired after 10 games, three wins and the team in the relegation zone.

Vítor Pereira (Flamengo)

In January, he took technical command of the country's most expensive squad, which won the Libertadores and Copa do Brasil titles. However, he lost all the cups he played in and was fired three months later.

Jorge Sampaoli (Flamengo)

The coach came with a mission to “get the club back on track” and failed to achieve the expected results. Flamengo reached the final of the Copa do Brasil, but was easily overtaken by São Paulo. Moreover, Sampaoli has accumulated some serious problems in the relationship.

Jesse Rodriguez (Coritiba)

During his stay at Real Madrid and big clubs in Europe, he arrived in Coritiba and could not become a regular player. On the contrary, Jesé made just six appearances for the club and scored only one goal.

Alfredo Morelos (Santos)

Recruited as one of the main additions of the year, Morelos was unable to gain form and continue with Santos. Only three matches have been played so far.

Alexandre Pato (São Paulo)

With an international career and history in São Paulo, Pato returned to the club as a leadership figure, but did not perform well on the pitch. The striker was unable to get into the competitive rhythm and played only 10 matches, scoring only one goal.

Maurício Barbieri (Vasco)

The coach was hired to lead Vasco in a new phase, following its return to Serie A and thanks to investment from SAF. However, Barbieri did not achieve the expected results and left the club when Cruzmaltino was second in the Brasileirão.

Orellano (Basque)

This is one of the most expensive transfers in Vasco's history. The striker did not consolidate his position and played only 23 matches this season, in which he scored one goal and one assist.
