The coach has a contract with Juventude, which gained access to the competition in Serie A next season. At the time of publication of the report, people associated with the Rio Grande do Sul club claim that Peixe did not officially ask them to talk about paying a penalty for terminating his employment contract.

Vila Belmiro must pay a termination fee worth approximately R$1 million. Santos still has unpaid salaries of employees and players.

Thiago Carpini was one of the favorites of the new Santos board, whose president is Marcelo Teixeira. Since the elections that took place last Saturday (9), the name has been circulating behind the scenes for Alvinegro, who should soon contact Juventude to discuss the next steps in the recruitment process. The coach also had successful performances in Água Santa in 2023.

In addition to Carpini, Juan Pablo Vojvoda from Fortaleza also liked Marcelo Teixeira. However, the Argentine stated that he would remain in Leão do Pici in 2024.


Thiago Carpini has always been a coach praised by people at Santos even before the end of this season. The professional led Água Santa at Paulistão 2023 and reached the state finals with the team from Diadema of Greater São Paulo.

Since the team had no match schedule for the rest of the year, he left the club and went in search of specialization outside Brazil.

However, Carpini accepted the invitation to coach Juventude, who were in last place in the second division of the Brasileirão. He not only lifted the team from the bottom of the table, but also led the team to runner-up in Serie B and consequently gained access to Serie A.
