Brazilian coach leaves his port via internet

Palmeiras coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo has used social networking site Twitter to temporarily reduce his network of business contacts. The ex-Brazil national team coach quit his job in a tweet on the site.

He wrote: “I’m no longer the manager of Palmeiras. I was sacked because of disagreeing with Keirrison’s attitudes. Read about it on my blog: uxemburgo.blog.uol.com.br.”

As if to undo the ground-breaking technological nature of his resignation, Luxemburgo managed to get his blog address wrong at the end of the tweet! There should be an ‘l’ before ‘uxemburgo’.
