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.

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.

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.

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.
