Pedriño’s coach Will Dantas once again criticized Jorge Jesus, blaming the Portuguese coach for the Brazilian’s failure to serve Benfica.
Comments from the current coach [Jorge Jesus] They were not very happy, the coach cannot make such comments in public. I’m sure he doesn’t want anyone to say publicly that he’s an ordinary coach, that he has practically not won anything, that he is a coach of a certain age already and has never been an icon anywhere ”, he began by saying about the agent, in statements to Al Nahda Radio راديو.
“Winning the titles he won at Flamengo, who were practically a national team, is one thing. Another thing is to play Corinthians, Sao Paulo, Santos, Gremio, Internacional and win something.”
“You can’t fire a player 20 seconds after the end. This is a coward. Not only with the athlete, but also with the game itself. Will Dantas, whose agreement with Shakhtar turned out to be “good for all parties”, I think is a lack of respect for any athlete.
The businessman also revealed that there was interest from two other “big European clubs” in Pedrinho, but the Ukrainians “were the first to come forward” in hiring the 23-year-old.
Will Dantas praised Luis Felipe Vieira’s behavior throughout the process.
I want to absolve the Benfica president of any responsibility. He was a serious person, very correct, and when I showed my displeasure, and the athlete, he showed an openness to negotiation,” the businessman revealed, reinforcing Jesus’ criticism: “I never excuse the coach. Nobody deserves to go through this (…) The coach that exists is not the owner of the truth and did not invent football. Who hired him? [Bruno] Laji, very ethical, humble, very professional.”
