It is already public that he loves our venture, not solely in Botafogo, however in Brazil. He is , however it has been revealed publicly that there have been safety points along with his household, this occurs in a number of golf equipment.

It was a particular state of affairs in the latest sport … Proper accountability and self-discipline, the case had already been determined. I believe that turned out to be a superb skilled train for that individual. It’s time to cease, mirror, and we have been delighted with CBF’s resolution earlier than we obtained there. The assembly was about easy methods to take the subsequent step. Our concept is that if we create a brand new regulation in a brand new period if we will take coaching and ship it to the complete world for instance the implementation of the VAR I believe judges ought to be paid as full-time professionals.
– Athletes ought to apply between sports activities, referees as properly. Some of the conditions that happen for the first time throughout a match, that is a part of soccer. So seeing how the referees interpret and implement this coaching is what ought to occur between video games. In Brazil, that would not occur as a result of the referees have one other job and so they have to organize for the massive sport. They ought to be employed full time, properly paid, watch movies to enhance. We had a superb dialog, and that is an effective factor right here in Brazil. We can clear the desk and begin from scratch. I’m a brand new boy, I’m studying rather a lot about Brazil.
– Brazilian followers have to be very happy, as a result of right here there are nice leaders and clever individuals in soccer. So they’ll additionally see the alternative to start out from scratch, look to the future to be taught what’s going to occur overseas, enhance the sport, not just for Brazil, however for the world.
Is it potential to keep away from confusion?
– There is de facto no strategy to keep away from it, to suppress the feelings of the crowd once they wish to evade safety. In the Crystal Palace sport towards Everton, once they managed to win, a match that assured them a spot in the Premier League, there was a really robust protection. It is a drive of the crowd, nothing to do towards it. Yes, we will work on safety, we’ve got already carried out it and we’ll do extra. however I used to be heartbroken. I noticed what was occurring in entrance of me, as I watched, I misplaced the gamers I used to be attempting to signal. Some of the individuals caught with the cameras are the ones who ship me a message on Twitter saying: “Promise to convey such a player?”. The player may not come once more due to that day.
