The coach wanted two seasons as a condition for a new contract, while Petro de Luanda’s board intended only once, according to the president of that sports club, Tomás Faria.

In a recent interview with ANGOP, on the occasion of the Assembly of Partners, or vice-president of the basketball team, Artur Barros, confirmed the disagreement between the parties.

He went on to explain that he has already been on the nationally and international markets, in search of a substitute as a preventive measure.

The new Petro's vice-president for basketball, Anselmo Monteiro, will now have the responsibility to find another coach for the national champions, in a club in which the elections is scheduled this Saturday and the swearing on Monday.

Since 2012, Preto de Luanda, Lazare Adingono, who replaced the Portuguese Alberto Babo, won two National Championships (2015 and 2019), two Angola Cups (2013 and 2014) and one African Champion Clubs Cup (2015).
