– The players themselves are asking for new, quality players to come. They want an absolutely strong, competitive team that will fight with those who are more organized. They don’t want everything to stand still. The more quality it has, the more the possibility of a title, the more joy the group itself has – said the leader in a live on TV Galo.
The charge of the players for a stronger team, capable of fighting for the Brazilian happened just on the day that the Rooster paid a delayed payroll, this Tuesday, May 27th.
This movement of athletes, plus the interests of alvinegro in the market, seems to be creating a harmony in the football department, which aims at long-term goals, even with the difficulty in investing at this time.
Mattos said that even with clubs in debt, it is normal to sign contracts.
– It is not new in Brazilian football, not only in Atlético. Club that owes, including its own squad, including labor terminations, taxes, player purchases. Clubs in a situation like this sign players. The machine does not stop. Every player who is there knows the importance of the year, even because they have owed so far – all of us, I already include myself there – for the eliminations, for everything that has happened in the year – said Mattos, who reinforced the anxiety of the players. athletes.
– The players themselves are anxious. Today I was asked: “When will two, three, four, five” little warriors “arrive there to help us, to make us stronger?”. So, there is nothing new in Brazilian football and world football, in those countries that have financial difficulties. Clubs, even with debt, sign up. Obviously you have to have credibility, and that we do. Especially President Sérgio (Sette Câmara) with this list – he concluded.
