After América’s 3-0 defeat to Coritiba, in the middle of Independência, which decreed Coelho’s relegation to Series B, coach Fabián Bustos recognized the terrible football presented by the team, but was confident in the team’s ‘comeback’. team next season.
“Today was a shame, the way we competed. It was the worst game ever under my command”, began the Coelho commander in his press conference.
“Based on the way we had been competing in the last few games, today we did very badly. Me and all the players. In many Brasilerão games we let points slip away, we drew, we lost, but we always managed to compete. The ugliest thing was how we handed the game”, he added .
For Bustos, fans are right to protest what they saw on the field in this Wednesday’s match against Coritiba. “The game was very bad. It doesn’t represent what we, the coaching staff, management and players have been working towards.”
Even without knowing whether he will remain in charge of the team, Bustos believes that América is fully capable of ‘turning things around’ next year.
“I’m not afraid of next season. América will rise again. Whether with me or another coach. América as a club, as an institution, has the prospect of continuing to grow. América will rise again. Compete next year and try to return to Serie A”, concluded Bustos.
