Sao Paulo president Carlos Miguel Aidar said Sao Paulo had done all they could to convince Osorio to stay.

“I deeply regret his decision. He was doing a good job,” Adiar said in a statement on Tuesday.

Osorio leaves Sao Paulo fifth in Brazil’s Serie A standings, having led them to 12 wins, seven draws and nine losses since his arrival in May. He has also taken the club to the semifinals of the Copa do Brasil.
