Zico leaving Fenerbahce after failing to agree extension

Zico leaving Fenerbahce after failing to agree extension

Fenerbahce coach Zico is leaving the club.
President Aziz Yildirim said Fenerbahce had failed to reach a deal with the former Brazilian star to stay for another season.
"We were not able to reach an agreement following negotiations with Zico," Yildirim said Tuesday. "We have now suspended talks."
A new coach will be announced next week, Yildirim said.
The 55-year-old Zico played in the 1978, 1982 and 1986 World Cups. He joined Fenerbahce in 2006 after having coached Japan for four years.
Under Zico, Fenerbahce reached the quarterfinal stage of the Champions League for the first time this year.
