“For the last two or three years, we’ve been following what was happening. Flamengo with Jesus and Abel at Palmeiras and others like Sampaoli who played for Atletico and Santos. I started to delve into the subject, to study, research and talk to coaches. It’s not an idea now. The foreign coaches that I spoke to.
