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 impression 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.

Corinth’s very poor soccer in opposition to Red Bull Bragantino, which compelled Cassio into three unimaginable saves and nonetheless watched in despair as a ball kissed his crossbar earlier than Arthur’s purpose sealed a deserved defeat, in distinction to what occurred in Rio.

The opponent, Portuguesa da Ilha do Governador, was undoubtedly a a lot weaker opponent, however Flamengo’s posture was thrilling, vibrant, imposing. With its outlined technique, the precise reverse of the unstable workforce within the palms of Dorival Junior, whose tactile simplicity now not works at the top of 2022, even with one of the best workforce in Brazil.

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

What occurred in Rio de Janeiro and Braganza highlighted the distinction between a workforce 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 referred to as “brother”.

And additionally his reply, which lots of the members of the Board and the Advisory Council thought-about to be hasty, meaningless. Hand over the place to Fernando Lazaro, a brief participant with simply seven video games below his belt.

Board members proceed to name the Portuguese coach a “traitor”. But he has 20 years of expertise as a workforce chief.

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

Roger Guedes, probably the most complained about gamers within the nation and who received on very badly with Vitor Pereira, received his want in Bragança. He performed extra centrally, not as a left winger. The similar occurred on the correct with Moraes, who was once more very unhealthy.

In midfield, Fausto Vera in entrance of the protection, Du Queiroz on the correct, 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 possibilities. The defeat with only one:0 was unfair, in opposition to the background of aggressive and really nicely-coordinated soccer.

It felt like a workforce from 2023 in opposition to a workforce from 11 years in the past.

“Cascio performed an awesome recreation and stored us alive within the recreation till the top. We may have seemed for a draw even with the prevalence of the opponent all through the match. We labored exhausting to start out the race nicely. We are making ready the group.

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

Fernando Lazaro blamed the struggles Corinthians placed on the absence of Renato Augusto, who continues to be bettering his health, Adson, suspended, Romero and up to date signing Bidou.

But even when the coach solely had below-11 boys, Corinthians wanted to have a aggressive, trendy tactical construction. They did not have. We keep in mind 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 wish to return to Corinthians after the World Cup. The session came about shortly after the departure of Vitor Pereira, who stated he would care for his mom-in-regulation’s well being in Portugal.

The coach nonetheless dreamed of creating Brazil a six-time world champion after which working in an enormous workforce in Europe. stated 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 director of soccer and former president Roberto de Andrade makes advisers sure that if the street with Fernando Lazaro is as dismal because it was in his debut, the previous Brazil nationwide workforce coach will land for a fourth tour at Parque São Jorge.

A scenario that Lazaro understands and wouldn’t even be an impediment to work as an assistant to the coach he admires.

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

For the primary recreation I favored the persona. This is a relaxed workforce on the ball that has moments of offensive high quality. We additionally had good moments of nicely executed stress 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 are already closed. We have to step up the sport at the correct time after which have a extra organized and coordinated stress. There have been occasions once we left. We additionally turn out to be harmful as a result of the gamers up entrance can resolve the sport at any time. We will evolve.”

“Flamengo is a workforce that is aware of easy methods to hold the ball. We had good moments of stress, good issues executed. As for the followers, I do not know what to say. 51 thousand followers on a Sunday afternoon, with solar, with a seaside to go, it is ardour.”

The formidable speech, the beneficiant self-confidence mirrored within the press, within the followers, within the board.

Not solely does Vitor Pereira have the offensive, constant, trendy tactical imaginative and prescient that the leaders have been searching for. But additionally the agency place of an skilled coach, filled with scars, vital victories, defeats, good occasions, unhealthy occasions.

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

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

He does not have a lot expertise whilst 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 doable signings.

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

With the arrival of Silvinho, he returned to CIFUT.

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

Your inexperience is scary.

The survival of the publish will rely upon the availability of gamers. More than your instructions.

The manner Corinthians behaved yesterday was a poor present card.

It damage much more in opposition to 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 wish to win.

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

With a set purpose.

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

The distinction within the ambiance of the 2 hottest golf equipment in Brazil is big.

And it has its coaches by origin.

One with twenty years of expertise.

And one other, with eight video games behind him…

It is not any coincidence that Tite’s shadow appears on the horizon of the East Zone.

Just the rainfall statement…
