With 100% success in five games, the coach Cuca evaluated his work in front of the Athletico. Even with fluctuations in performance during the period and even in the 4-1 defeat of Sportivo Ameliano, in the debut of the Sudamericana, the coach believes he is doing a great job.

“Everyone wants their team to perform at its best. But if you go to Brazil today, look at the other big clubs as they did away from home. And if we value our State, I say we are doing a great job. But it’s not me who has to evaluate my work, it’s you. But I came to Athletico to do my best, get the best out of the players and to have achievements”, said Cuca.

With five wins in five matches, the Curitiba has its best start to work in the last 15 years. The last time he started so well at a club was at Flamengo in 2009, with six straight wins.

Cuca also admitted that he will talk to the board to ask for reinforcements for the Brasileirão, which starts on April 13th. The national window will remain open until April 19th for signings of athletes who played in the state championships. Athletico’s priority is to sign a winger.

“When the championship ends [Paranaense] and just before the Brazilian Championship starts, I will have a dossier that I will deliver to the board, saying ‘look, I have this, I don’t have this’ and we will discuss how we can become stronger for the most important competition and more difficult, which will reward teams that have better squads. And I think we can start with an improvement in the squad”, he revealed.

Cuca explains the use of a scheme with three defenders

Coach Cuca also explained the use of the scheme with three defenders in the match against Sportivo Ameliano. Furacão had some defensive errors in the first half and ended up conceding a goal. In the second half, the coach removed Gamarra and returned to playing with just two defenders (Pedro Henrique and Thiago Heleno).

“When you play with three defenders with qualified output it is more difficult for the opponent to score. You can deepen the wingers and bring the wingers inside. When the wingers play inside… It’s a scheme that gives versatility and the opponent’s marking becomes much more confusing. And there are system changes that we make during games too, as happened today”, he concluded.

Cuca can win his first title with Athletico against Maringá with Paranaense. The final will be this Saturday (6), at 5pm, at the Ligga Arena.
