O Botafogo he lived a nightmare in 2020. He did a bad campaign in Brasileirão and ended up relegating. In addition to the financial problems, a tricky start.

(laughs) When you arrive at a time like we arrived, the insecurity, because things weren’t happening, any name, maybe everyone was afraid of what the coach and coaching staff might deliver. Little by little we show the work. I would like to praise, the main responsible for this achievement are the players, they embraced Enderson and the commission. we feel so at home. They always tried to do what I proposed and what we talked about, about strategy and how to play. I would like to thank everyone for their dedication and commitment. We’ve always been a group, not just 11 players. Our jobs were always competitive, disputed, they increased the level of training. It was fundamental for us to have this achievement”, he exalted Enderson Moreira, who also made a special thanks:

I would like to give a very special thanks to the supporter.. At certain times, it was the goalkeeper, defenders, full-backs, midfielders, strikers, who pushed us through difficult moments that the games could have taken us to another path. The fan was crucial in this decisive moment“, pointed out the technician.
