“I have to make my decision not based on the name Róger Guedes, not based on what he’s already done, but based on what he’s doing at the moment. My decisions are always like this, both in training and in the game,” he explained.
“I also wanted to coach Liverpool, but I can’t. If you asked me, I would run to coach Liverpool. With all due respect to Corinthians, but Liverpool is Liverpool. Here, it’s not what we want. The concept of the game, it’s not what we want. What the team needs is Rogue’s pity, sometimes on the left, sometimes in the middle, sometimes on the right. And he must have the ability to provide the answer to that, or at least the intention,” he argued.
“He must have a defensive commitment. They say (the shirt) 10 of the old days is gone. Why did he disappear? Because he was waiting for the ball at his feet to give the last pass. You can’t play football with a player without commitment,” he shot.
“He (Roger Geddes) is trying, but I need a stronger answer, an answer that says: ‘I’m here to fight, to play 10 (minutes), 30, 90. I’m here to play left, in the right, in the middle, anywhere.'” For me, that should be the spirit.”
