Arthur Jorge will be the new “partner” of John Textor In the project Botafogo. The coach of Bragain the last two seasons, arrived in Rio de Janeiro with the mission of redeveloping a project that went off the rails less than a year ago.

Since arriving at Botafogo, Textor has sought an offensive style of football similar to that of Europe. Although this objective has not yet been achieved, last year the team showed European characteristics in the first round, with positional and mentally strong football. This could represent a complete leap forward in Brazilian football. Furthermore, this change involves not only field tactics but also an internal culture that includes scoutanalysis, technical team, management, among others.

In 1979, Bill Walshupon assuming the San Francisco 49ers, had the mission of restructuring and creating a culture for a franchise that was dysfunctional. He believed that a sporting culture is not created overnight, but is a process. His motto was “The Score Takes Care of Itself” (the scoreboard takes care of itself), indicating that the result is a by-product that will happen naturally from doing the right things within a culture.

We see ramifications of this model in football itself with Ferran Soriano, ex-Barcelona and current City manager. In your book “The Ball Doesn’t Go In by Chance”the importance of an organizational culture that will make results arrive naturally becomes clear.

When Textor mentioned the “Botafogo Way”, he referred not only to the way of playing, but also to the culture to be created at the club. However, this process was interrupted last year, causing significant damage as it was far from solidified.

Arthur Jorge arrives after we miss 90 days of pre-season due to a wrong choice last year. The coach is new and his CV is not as extensive as some of the fans expected, but he is already showing results. It has some predicates that Textor always highlighted in his vision: offensive football, european school, basic experience It is good group manager. He arrives at a time that requires proactivity, as training time will be limited. Any change in the coaching staff involves at least five professionalswhich tend to show fluctuations at first.

According to what was reported by the press, Botafogo will pay R$ 10 million to take off Arthur Jorge from Braga. The Portuguese team is in the final stretch of the championship, competing for a continental spot, and enters the field tomorrow to position itself two points behind Porto (Europa League) and move away from Vitória Guimarães, who is also in the mix for a continental spot. We’re not looking for someone whose season is in limbo. John Textor signals that he was chosen to be the new partner and paid what was necessary for it, removing an entire technical committee from a team with seven rounds remaining in the championship. It is a clear message that the new coach arrives with morale and will have support. Works need time to develop and, year by year, become stronger.

The Botafogo squad this year It’s better than last year’s, and we hope it’s worse than next season’s. Arthur Jorge arrives with the mission of helping the project get back on track. Brazilian football gives room for cat leaps in the short term, but this needs to be a joint effort, including all sectors of the club. What was lost last year was more than just the field and the ball, but a culture that had been developing. May Artur be able to do an excellent job, as he will have a range of interesting pieces to do so. And Botafogo can develop its own culture again.
