With the presence of 777 executives in Rio de Janeiro, the decisive Wednesday began for Vasco’s players and technical commission members. The climate of pressure for the results of the round was transformed into more fuel for the next game against Guarani, at 7 pm, in São Januário.
Josh Wander, Founding Partner of 777, Juan Arciniegas, Director of Entertainment, Nicolas Maya, Director of Operations and Don Dransfield, CEO of the 777 football group have already been early with the athletes and all the staff. Soon, everyone will feel a tense atmosphere for a game that took on an air of obligation to beat Guarani. The directors of the American company will make the transition tomorrow of the 70 percent of Vasco saf and will already have to act strongly in important focuses that do not let the rope snap.
The first is the trainer, which will be changed as soon as possible. Emílio Faro will probably be playing his last game in charge today and this has already been recognized. With the group, the new Saf executive, Paulo Bracks, has had daily meetings and the leadership feels a confidence that encourages. The pre-game is considered very good. At home, athletes feel the strength to act. What needs to change is away from home, when playing in the opposing field. But there is optimism and a united and focused group, without vanity, which is sure to reverse the situation of five consecutive defeats outside Rio de Janeiro.
With the transfer of the football command to the majority partner as of this week, Paulo Bracks and Luiz Mello will be able to act with more autonomy and everything they have planned in recent weeks will be put into practice. Wait to meet expectations. Vasco, suspicious and fearful of the past, wants more action and less talk. So is expected. Starting with today.
