“I don’t get into contracts. I give them my daily opinion. In the field, Cazares, who was once my athlete at Atlético Mineiro, took time to join the team when I arrived here. He knows, I sit with everyone, talk to them. If the athlete is not well physically, reaching what we think is ideal, in terms of aggressiveness, being vertical, having a delivery that the fan applauds, he will not play“, he pointed out, in an interview with Radio Bandeirantes.
“If you don’t have it that way, whoever you are, you won’t be playing. I say why it is the reason I’m here. I try to be as fair and loyal to the athletes. Khazars are still a bit overweight. When he regains his form, he has full conditions to play because he is extremely talented. And that goes for other players“, completed.
In social networks, the biggest questions about the absence of Cazares are directed to Jô. For part of the crowd, the striker also does not seem to be in the best shape and has been a starter with Mancini. The coach admits that the striker has lost mobility and could grow a lot with time to train, but comes out in defense of his importance in some matches.
“That would be the ideal scenario (to put him off for specific training), but we don’t have time for that. I also think that Jô lost a little mobility, but he is under his weight, he does everything we ask, just like Cazares. We have no problem with the cast in that regard. What I said is that it took him a while to get back from the injury, it wasn’t even the athlete’s fault. And Jô’s case is more or less the same. We have to give Jô mobility conditions. Only the years go by. Today, Jô cannot be compared to that of five years ago. Within this evolution, we have to understand.
“Jô is extremely useful in some games. Ponte Preta, Palmeiras, Willow. It was too useful. Because the field demanded a different game. We have to understand. You can’t use it in every game, we’ll use it when it’s important. We recognize all of that. We have tried together with him, applying more after training, for them to develop what is asked for, “he added.
The pair, it is worth mentioning, can benefit from the period without games of Timão. The team trained throughout the week and continues with no set date for the return of matches.
