Just two days after introducing their new coach, a Brazilian club has fired him.

Coach Nem was officially introduced by third-division side XV de Jau to fans and local media on Monday. He was let go after the team's 3-1 loss to Flamengo in the third division of the Sao Paulo state championship on Wednesday.

The Globoesporte website said Nem appeared extremely upset in the locker room following the loss, which left the club near the relegation zone.

Club president Jose Construtor said on Thursday ''the team didn't play well'' and Nem ''made poor choices.'' He added, ''We need results, I'll find another coach'' on Thursday.
