He son, Edinho, was only appointed as Mogi Mirim manager in April but got sacked after just 4 games, with 2 defeats and 2 draws.

After the draw last week against Oeste, Mogi Mirim are now one place above the bottom of the league, with only one point more than Boa Esporte.

According to Futbol Sapieans Rivaldo said the following in a statement: “Sadly, football depends on results. Edinho showed he has qualities, but the team didn’t deliver what was expected and we decided to make a change before it’s too late”

Fans in Brazil are suggesting the whole escapade was a PR stunt.

During his time as a goalkeeper, Edinho played for Santos, Portuguesa Santista, Sao Caetano and Ponte Preta.
