after A negative tie between Sao Paulo and Botafogocoach Bruno Lage evaluated the debut of Diego Costa and captivated the meeting of the new striker with Tequenho, the top scorer of the Brazilian championship.
– We talked to him, he was a little surprised that he came so soon. But I felt his experience and what he did in just one training session, because yesterday we practically didn’t train, I felt I could go in very well and I did. He is an experienced player, caught the ball, and tried to connect the ends with the midfielder. There was a situation where it was accidentally turned off. We will not give him this responsibility either, despite the fact that he is an experienced guy and he must immediately do what Tekinho does. He arrived in very good spirits.
– The first day they had lunch face to face and at coffee time it was Diego who went to serve tequiño with coffee so I found that curious I don’t know if they knew each other from the past but I think it was weird that they were face to face and that Diego , beyond words, is experiencing that moment. I hope you’ll forgive me for sharing insider stuff, but I think it’s worth sharing. He went to offer Tiquinho his coffee. I hope in the morning he can serve Tekino again, Tekino to Diego, but at this moment we are glad he accepted the challenge. I also feel comfortable in the middle of the team and what we want is this. Of those 20 minutes he’s played, we’ll start to increase so that he has a more sustainable income and more playing volume – he revealed.
Botafogo returns to the field against Bahia, on Sunday, the 27th, at 4 pm, at Nilton Santos Stadium, for the twenty-first round of the Brazilian Championship.
