former director of Botafogo, Andre Silva detailed the hazy 2014 that noticed the membership’s relegation to Serie B and the sacking of the quartet Edilson, bolivar, Julio Cesar and Emerson Sheikh by the then president Mauricio Assumpsao. The former soccer vice-president revealed that a player, whose identify has not been launched, asked to leave because he didn’t agree to soften.
He additionally defined the behind-the-scenes of the foursome’s dismissal.
“Unfortunately, the whole lot was deserted.” For everybody. The membership was no imply feat. There he (Mauricio Assumpção) had to do (the reduce). I informed him he ought to have introduced what the boys did to the media. Left alone as a villain. He reduce the better of the staff, however there was a purpose. For me, it was his fault that he did not deliver (Wagner) Mancini out. There is one player I like a lot, I will not point out his identify, he trusted me a lot, I had introduced him to Botafogo, he referred to as me and stated he was going to ask to leave because the boys had been asking him to be soft. I do not know who asked, he did not inform me. But he asked to leave because he was both taking part in proper or he most popular to leave. He left, he was criticized by the crowd, however he left to keep out of it. The boys started to disrespect the entire establishment of the membership. “Oh, you are not going to pay me, I’ll drive to the locker room. They opened the doorways to the corridors and went. They drove to the annexed camp. The wardrobe with materials arrived, they stated “if they do not pay me, I’ll take the materials”. How will you get together with such gamers? There had been folks who walked collectively because they had been very linked, however they weren’t in that group. I’ve solely spoken to certainly one of these guys to date, I do know I’m not. Mauricio was fallacious not to deliver this up, he ought to have,” commented Andre Silva on the Glorioso Connection podcast.
Even with out a place at the membership, Andre Silva made himself accessible and tried to contribute in the latter half.
– I attempted to assist, I sought out distinguished folks from Botafogo to assist them replace their salaries, we had dinner at the Jockey, Botafogo is blessed because there are nice folks from Botafogo, actually nice. I’ve seen two nice folks from Botafogo give R$1 million every to Botafogo at no cost. I referred to as to ask for cash, his spouse stated “Andre, we love you, however he will not give one other R$1 to Botafogo”. I’m ashamed right now. When you are in the middle of the storm, keep there, he reminded.
– There is a match, Botafogo x Fluminense, in Brazil, I took care of the field workplace and the dressing room on my own, I was not vp, nothing occurred. The different day a sick deputy from Botafogo introduced me a milk jam from Minas Gerais, he gave it to me in a little cardboard bag. As I entered the locker room, certainly one of these began yelling, the animal man has arrived, have a look at the animal in the bag. The man barely knew me. It’s loopy, I leave with the cash from the until, go to the resort, line up with gamers and pay the guys. Look how archaic. Then the cash runs out, two gamers are lacking. I give my examine to them, Tanque Ferreira and Bolivar. Total amateurism he continued.
The former supervisor believes the greatest mistake was not sacking the coach Wagner Mancini.
– I see a scenario, because then the player has to consider in the coach, it is a utterly totally different career. We could not belief our bosses, get the job executed and it’ll movement. In the case of the player, no. You have to consider in the coach, in the undertaking, in the sport plan, in the ways. I’ve skilled that when the coach will get the group to consider in him, after a whereas it is exhausting to maintain. There the earnings drops drastically. In the case there, I noticed the determine yelling at a player in entrance of everybody else, calling them the worst names you possibly can consider. There I noticed that I was already utterly misplaced. Any coach that has had the group can be challenged because when a player likes the coach they problem him however after they do not care they leave him. Worst of all, subsequent Wednesday he took the man out of 10. Do you assume that man will run into him? There was a drawback there, Mauricio (Assumpsao) wished (Wilson) Gottardo to ship Mancini off. Gottardo was between a rock and a exhausting place because Mancini agreed not to. But it was no use, in the finish they even fought. And what occurred occurred – he concluded.
