Before the arrival of Vanderlei Luxemburgo, Cuca cut a lightning passage through the Corinthians. O the coach asked from six days after being announcedafter strong pressure from fans, who did not accept his signature because of the conviction for the rape of a 13-year-old girl in 1989 in Switzerland.
And in the opinion of Alessandro Nunes, (Site notre bureau spécialisé) coach of the São Paulo club, Cuca was unfairly « cancelled » by the fans.
All and participating in the program F90 This Monday (19), the manager came to the coach’s defense and reiterated that Corinthians believe he is staying at Parque São Jorge.
“There was no intention of the Corinthians for him to leave. It was his initiative because everything he went through. Very unfairly, he stayed with us for a short period of six days,” he began by stating.
« We had no doubts it would work very well because he’s a very capable and successful coach for what we have there that was important to have, but he was canceled and he didn’t not had the opportunity to experience the Corinthians a little more”, finished.
Cuca arrived at Corinthians to fill the position vacated by Fernando Lázaro. And, according to Alessandro, the choice of the coach’s name was made on the basis of « risks », which, in the opinion of the board, would be well managed with good results from the team on the field. .
« Every decision, in a large institution like ours, is made on the basis of an analysis of what can happen immediately. Many times they point to risks, signs of small risks, that over time and managed well with the results, we would go over the top,” he said.
“What I can say is that the risks to Cuca’s name don’t even compare to other people who have passed through here. That’s why we were very calm, that maybe a more negative situation could arise, but thanks to the confidence in the work, in the competence and in the results, it ended up working. And I have no doubt that the results would come,” he noted.
Finally, Alessandro regretted what he called a ‘surge of negativity’ over Cuca and again stressed that the choice of the coach was made based on criteria beyond the four lines.
This wave came, who let’s face it, there was so much negativity as to cause a very bad emotional situation and, even if we all wanted him to stay, for Cuca, it was the last straw for him to retire and think about it, family and other things,” he said.
“These analyzes are very delicate, done by many people. I guarantee that Cuca does not reach me the feet of many other coaches who have passed through the club and nothing has happened. Our analysis covers everything, sporting, personal, institutional, it does not simply cover the exterior or the technical part. It involves many things, difficult to do, to study. It is a document that you write about the professional and plan to study on all these fronts, ”said the leader.
