Athletes who did not have the necessary playing rhythm were able to start playing and performed very well. “Of course, we will talk Always on the subject of height, but despite this, they appreciated the minutes they spent on the field, gave their best and fulfilled the tactical functions that Nico had previously set,” rated the number 3.

“This is how you create a strong group. This is how you create a group that will compete for the title of champions (Minas Gerais) this weekend and will compete for the Copa Sudamericana title.
