OITA (Kyodo) Troubled J. League club Oita Trinita have given manager Pericles Chamusca a stay of execution just days after indicating the charismatic Brazilian was on his way out, team official Yasushi Hara said Monday.

“He will be in charge of the team for the next game,” Hara said, referring to Sunday’s trip to Jubilo Iwata. “At the moment I can’t comment on what will happen after that.”
