– I see this transformation as important, positive and necessary for the club to stay within the football line, which requires professionalism, quality and structure. There is no point in paying the salary on time if there is no structure for the athlete and coach to work. All that is being done is what Botafogo really needed to rebuild. Botafogo reminds us only of its history, but the present was not perfect. Today you are on the right track. “I hope in four, five or six years, the situation can be much better and the athletes who choose another place today will be able to choose Botafogo because of all this restructuring,” said Loco Abreu.
The former striker also told which Uruguayan player he thought looked like Botafogo.
– Everyone already knows, but I do not know if we will succeed. The guy who looks like Botafogo, for being strong, playing well and having that feeling, is Luis Suarez. See everything the people of Botafogo love. But honestly I find it hard to go. Make it happen. Some other Uruguayans are sure to go to Botafogo after – Loco completed.
