I became emotional, during the match I was touched by the way the team played. But we made a lot of mistakes when we saw these girls playing this happy and cheerful volleyball, but with their feet on the ground, realizing the difficulties we are going through so that everything will get better. There is no lost ball, and the feeling of energy and the way they communicate moves me a lot. To win this match, we had to have the same focus and preparation that we had at Barueri, but I think these girls learn very quickly – said the coach.

The lack of a sponsor for Ze Roberto’s team excited the fans who made #PatrocineOBarueriVolei The most talked about topic in Brazil on one of the social networks tonight.
I’m worried because the project has already lost five players in 2020 and five other players this season and we don’t want to lose anymore, but to continue with this project. It is a source of great pride because my family, my wife and my daughters are so dedicated. Many people have helped and supported us. We need help and support for this beautiful project so that it does not die
