Luxembourg will be on the program at SBT

One of the most successful coaches in Brazilian football, Vanderlei Luxemburgo will be on “The Noite” program this Wednesday (21). We have at the moment.

“Grincha wouldn’t play today. The way he used to play, where he took the ball, dribbled the guy, stopped, waited for the guy to come back and dribbled again. The coaches didn’t give him a ball.” .. I tell them to dribble. A player without a dribble, football without a dribble, that is not the essence of football,” he said.

With nine Camponatos Paulistas, five Brazilians, one Copa do Brasil and many more state and regional titles, he also won the Copa America with the team and was the first and only Brazilian to command Real Madrid.

Luxemburg also stated that today, Brazilian soccer stars are no longer made as they once were. For him, the essence is over with time.

“Brazil has the essence of playing soccer. People have played a lot of ball on the flood plain. In soccer, there is no point in people wanting to create another solution that is not intended for the least favored. Soccer for the least favored. You are not born rich and you will play. Over time, we have lost the fields that create players. A clay pitch, where the player was born… Football geniuses are born in favelas,” he said.

‘The Noite’, presented by Danilo Gentilly, with the full interview with Vanderlei Luxemburgo, will be broadcast at dawn this Wednesday, on SBT, at 00:30.
