“We need the players, the coach, and everyone’s desire on the bigger objective. I need to work on my style step by step because every coach has a style and I have my own”, he added.

“I trust my players too much and before everything I respect my players but again they must respect me. I hope to start a good relationship in order to help the players seize the opportunity and show their capacity. It is not about picking eleven players to start the game but they must show me during the week why they should start.” the head coach explained.
With 25 years of coaching experience, the Brazilian Coach and former player had do make the tough decisions to join the Green Army having several offers across the continent.
