Richarlison prefers Botafogo's second midfielder Patrick de Paula and asks for patience: 'There is still a lot to talk about'

Richarlison prefers Botafogo’s second midfielder Patrick de Paula and asks for patience: ‘There is still a lot to talk about’

Patrick de Paula scored his first goal in a Botafogo shirt this Thursday, in the victory over Sealandia, but he still faces an uneven start to his career with his new club. For commentator Richarlison, who has had a successful career in the position, BK should play more as a second midfielder and ask black and white fans to be patient.

I’d prefer Patrick to play second, because he’s strong, shooting from outside the box, and coming into the area as an element of surprise. Playing as a midfielder, that’s a little limiting, because you have to worry more about the defensive part. He’s a great player, he’s going to come out like he showed at Palmeiras, but you have to be patient. I have no doubt that it will help Botafogo and give a lot to talk about – said Richarlison, on “Tá na Área” on SporTV.

Botafogo has not lost in six matches and is unbeaten so far with coach Luis Castro on the bench. For the commentator, even with a little time at work, it is already possible to notice positive changes under the leadership of the Portuguese.

Patrick de Paula is in transition like Botafogo. It is important to note that Botafogo has currently had a job for just over a month and is already reaping some positive results. Regardless of this rating (about Ceilândia), Botafogo is a team that is still being reshaped, not only in terms of structure, but also in terms of team – as Richarlison explained.
