“No budget frenzy”

Ronaldo’s goal, until the end of the year, is to raise expenses to the level of 35 million Brazilian riyals. without making any more expenditures than the heavenly budget allows.

Football is a priority, but we won’t do any budget frenzy. What we want to build is a long-term sustainable club. And to build this, it is impossible not to suffer in the short term.

– We won’t do that. We have very clear guidelines, our budget is very clear, we have a budget that has to be followed in a military way, because we know that is the only way to do it. Sea trip grow in the long term. It has to suffer in the short term to grow in the long term. I can’t tell you this year’s budget, but I can tell you it’s short.

Today the structure of football is the structure that, because of the situation Sea trip Pension, economical, requires a lot of maintenance, and due to the economic situation the maintenance is reduced. It’s normal, but now we have to invest. So we have an investment plan over time, in both Toca I and Toca II to improve these business conditions.

The Philosophy Passed On, What We Want For Sea trip, Pezzolano succeeded in passing that to the field in a very easy way. The players understood the coach’s philosophy, and Sea trip. But Mineiro’s performance did not fool us. The competition is tough. Perhaps one of the toughest League Two in recent years. Very big teams, much bigger investment sizes from our team. People are not fooled. It will not be easy. We have a team that will fight hard on the field. This we will build over the months.

For this transfer period, which ends next Tuesday, Sea trip Five other athletes must score: goalkeeper Gabriel Mesquita, midfielder Neto Moura, attacking midfielder Leonardo Paes, as well as forwards Rafael Silva and Rodolfo. No further reinforcements are expected at this time.
