Not so holy for Santos, maybe.
Santos of Brazil announced his new coach for the 2019 season: Jorge Sampaoli.
After staging a resounding failure in Russia 2018, the Argentine will take the reins of a club that needs to get back on track in the local championship. In addition, it has one of the best squads of the continent and will play the next Copa Sudamericana (yes, that nobody sees).
The coach’s perspective aims to seek redemption as a coach. Everything good that he has done seems to have been forgotten, like the historic U. De Chile.
The recent failure marked. That’s how toxic the Argentine team is.
The club, for its part, needs prominence. Brazil has to host a Peixe that fights the league and represents when leaving to international competitions.
The Rodrygo trampoline
In the midst of hiring, there is one aspect that stands out more than others: the role of Rodrygo.
Sampaoli is a modern technician with experience in Spain. The Brazilian jewel is an intelligent player and in months it will depart to Iberian soil.
If you ask me, this is a good combination.
The work is not completely done, because the sale of the player is not the end of the cycle. Santos, as a training club, will always want the best for his squad.
And so they do not want it, literally, there’s a lot of money involved.
It goes without saying that nobody wants Rodrygo to be the next ‘Gabigol’, so it will be important the positions and schemes of play that he can prove under orders from the Argentine.
The equation looks good. It did not seem impossible to get the X.
Not every day you get technicians like Jorge for South American football, and not every day this technician has his eyebrow back to the old continent.
Point in common: both parties need to perform well.
And this, my friends, can be the beginning of a beautiful (and short) story.
