“We discuss a lot about the Brazilian championship, if it should stop, because we have three teams without stadiums and CTs. It changes the calendar a lot, there are players from there in other clubs, with families in Rio Grande do Sul, who worry and who, psychologically, sometimes are unable to do their best […]. So, those who still have the means to continue helping do so because it’s not over.”.
