Loffredo criticizes Tequinho Soares' decision to start on the bench in Botafogo: “It makes no sense to save money at home against Atletico Go”

Arthur Jorge He chose to leave Tequinho Soares On the bench and had to be used 25 minutes into the first half, as Matthews Nascimento was injured in the team's win. Botafogo From 1 to 0 Atletico-GOat Nilton Santos Stadium, in Brazilian Championship. Commentator Andre LoffredoHe, from “Spor TV News”, disagreed with the coach’s decision.

It is also difficult to criticize the fans (due to the audience’s attendance). The team’s production has been declining since last year. These people were shocked by the coach's stance of leaving Tequinho off the field. He could have put Junior Santos inside, packed the midfield more, and many more options, but in reality he relies on four strikers. It could work against Atlético-GO, although in the end they came under a lot of pressure and could have conceded a draw. In any case. Honestly, after the explanations come, he'll save, save, doesn't really convince me. It makes no sense to save money on a home match against Atlético-GO. It would make sense if it happened later, it's the second round of the tournament, guys. There are Libertadores, that's true, but we've started the year, so let's save more for the future. The team changes, the player comes with more touch, participation and movement, and passes well, it's different, Tequinho was one of the best Botafogo players until then. It was very strange – criticized Loffredo.

The commentator views the scheme used by Artur Jorge in Botafogo with reservations.

– Even though the design might work, I don't think it's perfect. You can use it eventually. If the two players on the side reshape the line of four and one of the strikers can return to the midfielder position… but I don't see these players performing these functions. To replace one piece with another, he does not have the piece that can replace Tequinho well. On the other hand, there are good options. As for the midfield, without Eduardo, they can use Oscar Romero, who has good international experience. There are several options from the middle to the front, without changing the layout. He pointed out that what I do not know is whether these players can provide the response he expects.
