The steering wheel Fernandinho said he was satisfied with the start of coach Juan Carlos Osorio’s work at Athletico. The number 5 assisted Pablo’s goal in the 1-0 victory over Cascavel, this Wednesday (7), at the Ligga Arena, for Paranaense.
“It’s been a cool start. The teacher’s ideas are being well put into everyday life, they are being well explained. We are trying to assimilate as quickly as possible. These are good ideas that make us reflect on the game, the opponent and ourselves “These months have been very worthwhile. Our goal is to be as good as possible in April, when the Brazilian Nationals and other competitions begin,” he said.

The midfielder also spoke about preparation and the difference in philosophy with the new commission. The 38-year-old player has been spared from traveling in this State Championship, unlike what happened last year, when he played almost all the matches.
“The preparation is being done very well and we players are trying to assimilate in the best possible way. We understand the fans’ possible anxiety as it is the centenary year. But we had three coaches last year, a new one this year. There are many changes, in addition the arrival of new players, with a different profile. It takes a lot of time to prepare a good team, which is what we want”, he added.
“Last year was an atypical situation. There was a different plan, with the limitation of enrollees in Paranaense. Now it’s a new philosophy. Professor Osorio’s profile is different, he has rotation, and this ends up contributing to us not doing these long trips and can make better, more specific preparation. It’s important, especially, for those over 30, 35 years old. The main thing is that everyone understands that these months in Paranaense are preparatory”, concluded the number 5.
Probably without Fernandinho, Athletico returns to the field against Londrina on Saturday (10), at 4pm, at Estádio de Café, for the eighth round of Paranaense. Furacão is in the lead, with 17 points, and undefeated, with five wins and two draws.
