Flamengo’s devastating win by “traitor” Vitor Pereira further exposes newcomer Lazaro at Corinthians. Tite’s shadow appears – Prism

Sao Paulo Brazil

Maracana and the stadium Nabi Abi Chedid have by no means been so united.

The fallout from what occurred to Flamengo and Corinthians had a direct influence on Duilio Monteiro Alves’ board of administrators.

The debuts of Vitor Pereira and Fernando Lazaro confirmed the awkward tactical distance, stance and depth of Brazil’s two hottest golf equipment.

Corinthians’ very poor soccer towards Red Bull Bragantino, which pressured Cassio into three unbelievable saves and nonetheless watched in despair as a ball kissed his publish earlier than Arthur’s purpose that sealed a deserved defeat, contrasted with what occurred at River.

The opponent, the Portuguesa of Ilha do Governador, was a a lot weaker opponent, little question, however Flamengo’s posture was thrilling, vibrant, imposing. With its outlined technique, the precise reverse of the unstable staff within the palms of Dorival Junior, whose tactical simplicity now not works at the tip of 2022, even with the most effective staff in Brazil.

The victory of the crimson-blacks with 4 to 1 was timid solely on the scoreboard. The soccer was spectacular for the staff to attain at least three extra instances.

What occurred in Rio de Janeiro and Braganza highlighted the distinction between a staff led by a novice coach sharing energy with veterans and one other skilled, nicely-rounded one used to dominating star-studded groups.

What hurts Duilio is that Flamengo’s commander is the coach who betrayed his belief, deserted Corinthians and him, whom he known as “brother”.

And so was his response, which many members of the board of administrators and the advisory board discovered to be hasty, nonsensical. Hand over the place to Fernando Lazaro, a brief participant with simply seven video games underneath his belt.

The Portuguese coach continues to be known as a “traitor” by board members. But he has 20 years of expertise as a staff chief.

Fernando Lazaro is already making a predictable mistake for anybody who follows the day by day lifetime of Corinthians. Try to adapt to the gamers, make them play the place they need. This is usually not potential and hurts the staff itself.

Roger Guedes, one of the crucial complained about gamers within the nation and who acquired on very badly with Vitor Pereira, acquired his want in Bragança. He performed extra centrally, not as a left winger. The similar occurred on the fitting with Moraes, who was once more very dangerous.

In midfield, Fausto Vera in entrance of the protection, Du Queiroz on the fitting, Maicon on the left and Giuliano in entrance. Likewise, Red Bull Bragantino’s Portuguese Pedro Caixinha was not conscious of this distant, outdated tactical construction that may have labored with Tite in 2012. Not ten years later.

With an alternating 4-3-3, Red Bull pressed the Corinthian ball, with persona. He created a number of scoring probabilities. The defeat with only one:0 was unfair, towards the background of aggressive and really nicely-coordinated soccer.

It felt like a staff from 2023 towards a staff from 11 years in the past.

“Cascio performed an amazing sport and stored us alive within the sport till the tip. We might have appeared for a draw even with the prevalence of the opponent all through the match. We labored onerous to begin the race nicely. We are making ready the group.

“Of course, because the season goes on, the riders shall be in higher form. The absences shall be smoother when we’ve issues, however the absences at this time weighed. We know it is nonetheless an early stage, of data, with different gamers coming into the group,” mentioned the Corinthians coach after the defeat.

Fernando Lazaro blamed Corinthians’ struggles in defeat on the absence of Renato Augusto, who continues to be enhancing his health, Adson, suspended, Romero and Bidou, newly signed.

But even when the coach solely had underneath-11 boys, Corinthians wanted to have a aggressive, trendy tactical construction. They did not have. We do not forget that Fernando Lazaro was going to be an observer of Brazil’s opposing groups within the Qatar Cup. Not as a result of he took over Corinthians.

Lazaro solely took over as a result of Tite was consulted in Qatar and didn’t need to return to Corinthians after the World Cup. The session came about shortly after the departure of Vitor Pereira, who mentioned he would maintain his mom-in-regulation’s well being in Portugal.

The coach nonetheless dreamed of constructing Brazil a six-time world champion after which working in a giant staff in Europe. mentioned no But he made it clear that when he decides to return to Brazilian soccer, he’ll prioritize the membership the place he was happiest, Corinthians. And he gave his blessing to Fernando Lazaro.

The umbilical relationship between Tite and soccer director and former president Roberto de Andrade makes advisers sure that if the highway with Fernando Lazaro is as dismal because it was on his debut, the previous Brazil nationwide staff coach will land for the fourth lap across the Parque São Jorge.

A state of affairs that Lazaro understands and wouldn’t even put an impediment in working as an assistant to the coach he admires.

Meanwhile, in Gávea, the arrogance of the Flamengo administration after swapping Dorival Junior, champion of the Libertadores of the Americas, for Vitor Pereira.

For the primary sport I favored the persona. This is a relaxed staff on the ball that has moments of offensive high quality. We additionally had good moments of strain and high quality in defence. But we should make these moments final and develop over time.

“Basically, Flamengo must be extra affected person to hurry up the sport, discover areas, not shut areas which can be already closed. We have to step up the sport at the fitting time after which have a extra organized and coordinated strain. There have been instances once we left. We additionally develop into harmful as a result of the gamers up entrance can resolve the sport at any time. We will evolve.”

“Flamengo is a staff that is aware of easy methods to preserve the ball. We had good moments of nicely-executed strain. Regarding the followers, I do not know what to say: 51 thousand followers on a Sunday afternoon, with solar, with a seaside to go to, it is ardour.”

The bold speech, which radiates confidence, was echoed within the press, within the crowd, within the board.

Vitor Pereira has not solely the offensive, constant, trendy tactical imaginative and prescient that the administrators have been searching for, but additionally the agency stance of a dwelling coach, filled with scars, necessary wins, defeats, good and dangerous moments.

That of a commander who is aware of what he’s doing as a result of he has been proper, fallacious, received, misplaced.

Fernando Lazaro, no. He’s a rookie. With a privileged view of the sport, however theoretical. In apply, an excessive amount of is determined by the attitudes, on the bodily situation of the rivals he instructions.

Not a lot expertise, at the same time as an assistant. He held that place for simply 11 video games with Silvinho at Lyon. He began work within the IT division of Corinthians. After the failure of the job in France, he grew to become head of the Football Intelligence Center at Parque São Jorge, which monitored athletes from different golf equipment for potential signings.

He then began working as interim coach after Wagner Mancini was sacked.

With the arrival of Silvinho he returned to Chifut.

Until he was chosen to switch the “traitor” Vitor Pereira.

Your inexperience is horrifying.

The survival of the publish will depend upon the provision of gamers. More than your instructions.

The approach Corinthians behaved yesterday was a poor present card.

It harm much more towards the background of Flamengo’s efficiency, with coach Duilio wanting to remain at Parque Sao Jorge.

Everything continues to be very early.

But it could not be worse for Lazaro, who does not even dare to call a title Corinthians most need to win.

As Vítor Pereira started to achieve the belief of managers, followers and the press.

With a hard and fast purpose.

The dream of constructing Flamengo a two-time world champion.

The distinction within the environment of the 2 hottest golf equipment in Brazil is large.

And it has its coaches by origin.

One with 20 years expertise.

And one other with eight video games underneath his belt…

It isn’t any coincidence that the shadow of Titus appears on the jap horizon.

Just the rainfall commentary…
