If the end of the year goes as we planned, Tequinho Soares He has everything to become one of the greatest idols in our history. Given the quantity and quality of the idols that Botafogo Indeed, this would be something really impressive and would provide the true dimension of the ratio that Tequinho takes.
Over the past few years, we’ve become accustomed to sporadic idols who, in some way, have helped keep the flame of our fandom burning. Unfortunately, players of the size of Jefferson or Loco Abreu, for example, did not play for Botafogo in the period when the club was organized enough to provide these players with all the necessary structure so that they could experience a truly long period of achievement.
It is clear that we want to win the Brazilian Championship to “bury” all the disappointments we have suffered over the past 28 years, but we must also realize the positive impact this title will have on the establishment of new stars. When talking about this topic, it is almost impossible not to highlight the relationship that has been built between Tequinho Soares and Botafogo.
Of course, other players also develop deep relationships with us, but the case of Tequinho Soares is different. It is not absurd to say that many children and young people are influenced by the appeal of our number nine and become buttafogens players because of it. We are witnessing the perfect union between a strong team, excellent results on the pitch and a player capable of combining his superior technical quality with equal quality as a human being. Knowing that many of our children want to be like Tequinho when they grow up reinforces the certainty that Botafogo is on the right path.
Anyone who has had the opportunity to go to Nilton Santos in a match where Tequinho was on the field knows how charged the atmosphere becomes with positive energy and affection when his music is sung throughout the stadium. I cannot fully express how happy I feel when I see Tiquinho wearing our shirt. He’s admired by everyone in our world, including his teammates, and that’s very powerful and valuable.
We are facing a player who can significantly change the image of our fans and, obviously, increase the number of fans positively. The full impact of what Tequinho Soares is building at Botafogo can only be measured in the medium and long term. I hope we are lucky enough to see Tequinho wearing our jersey for the rest of his career, because it will be great to be able to be there for Nilton Santos to thank him in his last game as a professional.
We love you, Tiquinho!
