Shirt number 37 did well, did not concede, and gave a consistent performance in attack and defence.

– Tchê Tchê actually played that role with me, in Palmeiras e Fluminense, and I remember at that time he played well. That’s why, within the improvisations, I did the thing that actually got a positive result. He has done a very good job. This proves the value that we have from the players – the most prominent coach.

Led by São Paulo, Tchê Tchê was the only appointment Cuca requested in the early months of Atlético. He is one of the most present players in the starting lineup, and his versatility is one of his greatest assets to earning the confidence of the coaching staff.

In other stages of his career, such as Audax and in Palmeiras himself (with Cuca), Tchê Tchê was recognized for being a defensive midfielder and also played as a full-back, but on the right side. On the left, the match against Atlético-GO was only the second in their career.

– He’s skilled, he has that potential and he played a great game. She did very well in both attack and defence. He has prepared well and is a player we can trust.

The Brazilian Football Confederation wants the athlete to be available for the national team from July 8 – The rooster tries to negotiate the deadline for the 14th day.

Still without Dodo, who is still injured and has no expectations of a comeback, the 37th jersey is starting to be seen as a good option for the sector.

– Of course, every game you test is not for the future, but for the present. Koca said: If the present gives you the answer, then you trust the future.
