Atlético-MG could not beat Goiás in Mineirão and ended up losing 1-0 in a match valid for Round 23 of Brazil. In another match played by striker Hulk, the number 7 shirt left the field booed by the fans on the field.
In the press conference that followed the match, coach Coca defended the Atletico Madrid star and stressed the importance of giving confidence to the player. Gallo’s captain said work is what can help him get back to good football for 2021.
“Last year he also complained about the refereeing and it was very important for us. And he continues. We have to give him confidence, but not with words, it is with work, with all the players and every day until things get better. There are his teammates to take their place, as was the match,” Koca said. The last one, as it was today, but the trend is to get good football back and help us again, as he helped us in the past.

The Hulk recognizes the bad phase of the Rooster:
After the match, Hulk spoke about Atlético-MG’s new defeat in Brazil and reinforced that football is an outcome. The 7 jersey also highlighted the importance of turning the chances created into goals.
“We don’t win, but football is. There is no point in creating infinite chances and not winning the match. Football is a result and as a result erases many things. When you don’t win, there is no point in creating infinite chances and controlling the match. People are sorry because they They don’t know what’s going on. We work hard, we create, we play better than our opponents, but we can’t win. In football, when you’re at that point, we definitely have to try to focus and work. Hulk said in an interview with Premiere: We have to trust God Because then the positive things start to come in and we’ll be able to enjoy all our balls.
