Chosen by the Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport to defend eleven of Europe’s under-23 stars, the guilista left the former Botafogo coach full of pride.

The Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport has named Andrew Silva the best under-23 goalkeeper to have played in nine major European Championships, giving himself the title of an all-star team with names like Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandes and Manchester City’s Haaland “. .

The choice was received with great enthusiasm by Andrew Silva’s former club Botafogo (Brazil). Marcelo Inácio, who was Chilista’s goalkeeping coach for almost a decade, did not hide his pride: “I already told him that here at the club we were very happy. Me especially. Andrew was 11 years old when we started and he stayed with me until the age of 20, I am very happy to see this growth in the first year in Portugal”, comments O JOGO.

The coach adds that the evolution, and now this Italian praise, does not surprise him, nor does the recent interest of the national champion: “I never had any doubts that this could happen. I am sure that this is just the beginning and that he will shine much more. He has the potential to be in an even bigger team, as is the case with Porto. He has many technical qualities and an excellent reading of the game, but the main thing is his focus and ambitious personality. Of course, he is still very young, he is 21 years old, but he takes this first opportunity very hard.”

Also João Paulo Marangon, Andrew’s manager, emphasized the precocity: “I work a lot with goalkeepers and I know it’s rare to see someone so young playing with such consistency and regularity.” He also suggested that the news of the alleged interest from Porto spurred him on further: “We heard that his name is strong there, he has a personality and that was the impetus to keep working in search of a great club in the future.”

Property caught in the light
It was Ricardo Soares who bet on Andrew, launching him into the starting XI on February 2 at the Da Luz Stadium, to the detriment of the then owner of the establishment, Sige Frehli, and the club’s young player, Brian Araujo. Gil Vicente won that game (2-1) in a perfect baptism because the goalkeeper was one of the best on the field. Since then, he has already made 21 appearances in eleven and was also Ivo Vieira’s first choice, a situation which, combined with Kritchuk’s return to Barcelos, led to Ziga Frelich’s loan to Chaves.

René Simões: "If Luis Castro were Brazilian, he wouldn't be here" - Brazil



Former Botafogo coach notes the “rigidity” of the work of the Portuguese coaches

René Simões worked at Botafogo as one of his last jobs, especially in 2017. The Brazilian coach, who was Coritiba’s football coordinator until last August, expressed regret that the directors were more understanding of the Portuguese coaches and cited Luis Castro’s case. “I see that the Portuguese coaches are very strict in some things that they do not refuse. The fact that they don’t “rock the waist” makes this adaptation a bit more difficult. [Luís Castro] If there was a Brazilian coach and the direction would be Brazilian, the coach would not be here for a long time,” René Simões assured in a statement to the Samba que é goal program, quoted by Lance. The 65-year-old Coach even showed ignorance towards Luis Castro, who was the champion of Ukraine with Shakhtar Donetsk.

“I don’t know much about the Botafogo coach. It seems to me that he did not coach any team. I think he has always been a coordinator or director, and these are completely different positions. In addition, they attracted many players at the same time. It’s all very complicated, but Brazilian human culture has to adapt to it. It is necessary to adapt to the culture of the country,” he stressed.

In the second season at Brasileirão, Botafogo Luis Castro is in 10th place with 34 points from 27 rounds.
