Eduardo Baroca, who worked as a coach for a team Botafogo NS Atlético jo – This is his last job in Brazilian football – He said in an interview with Data ESPN which player he liked more.

“I have a great story. I worked in the basic categories of Botafogo and Joel Carly, who is now Captain of Botafogo… This story is so great, I don’t think I’ve ever said it publicly before. I was watching Joel Carly play, and in my heart I was saying, ‘If I coach this guy one day, he’ll never play with me. I don’t like playing this guy, I think he’s in trouble.’ Baroca said: “I coached Botafogo, in 2019, before the Brazilian championship, and I had two weeks before the first match against Sao Paulo.

“During this two-week process, I gathered the players and said I would give everyone an equal chance to compete. In those 14 days, I could see that I was wrong with him. On the outside reading I was really wrong I was really wrong because, from the outside, I didn’t have the ability to understand how important he was as a player, to positively influence others, how well he could solve problems – now with reading, sometimes with experience, sometimes with situation The good, sometimes communicating‘, she continued.

“Time passed, besides playing with me, He has been my captain all the time and is one of the players I respect the most in Brazilian football in terms of leadership and character, and I actually had the opportunity to speak with him in front of him.. I put him in front of me and said that before I became a coach, I imagined he would never play with me and that I would break my face and burn my tongue. Today, he’s a man I respect a lot. He added that I love as a player, as a person and as an athlete.
