Atletico’s anger has been caught of their throats since the finish of final yr, when Cuca, after main the Brazilian Cup and the Brazilian champions, determined to go away the club. I did not need an improve.
Capture a profitable course of.
Management was compelled to rent a new technician.
And then got here Turco Mohamed from Argentina. It has modified all of Cuca’s strategies. Atlético’s manner of enjoying. Only the miner gained.
But the crew was shipwrecked in the Brazilian Cup.
It didn’t encourage confidence in both the Brazilian or the Libertadores.
The group was unstable.
Turkish was launched. And Cuca returned in July, seven months after leaving.
The consequence was horrible, disappointing.
Cuca was unhealthy when he got here again.
He was talked about to take over the Brazilian nationwide crew.
He would achieve extra morale if he stayed away from Cidade do Galo.
But he couldn’t resist the appeals of Atlético Mineiro’s millionaire patrons who help their soccer.

The males who management Atletico soccer are already contemplating the title of the very best coach for subsequent yr.
Important folks from the soccer scene are on the listing.
Like Marcelo Gallardo, he already stated goodbye to River Plate in 2023.
And additionally Tite, who is not going to be in the Brazilian nationwide crew after the World Cup.
The uncertainty is nice.
The solely certainty is that Cuca is not going to keep.
If he left Atletico at the finish of 2021…
This time it will likely be Atletico’s flip to desert him.
And he additionally stopped being Tite’s pure inheritor…
