Speaking in a press conference, the president of the club, Tomás Faria, said the Brazilian coach, who has been ahead of the team since 2016, will remain in the lead of the team, despite failing to win any championship title for the team, but to turn the squad into a more competitive group and do not bring down the aspirations of the club.

Petro de Luanda finished runners up in the championship over the last three seasons.  

In 2019 the team aims to win the championship, the Angolan Cup and reach the group stage of the African Confederation Cup, said its chairperson.
