Atletico MG - statistics & current form

However, the former coach of the Argentine national team was poached by Olympique Marseille after the 2020 season and started his second European adventure (after Sevilla 2016-2017). Cuca, who was previously at FC Santos, was the successor to last season's third-placed team.
