Corinthians interim coach defends team’s performance and laments: “There’s not enough time”

Interim after the dismissal of the former coach, Raphael Laruccia commented on yet another defeat for Corinthians in the Brasileirão

The defeat suffered by Corinthians last Sunday, 7th, for the cruisedid not bring any concerns to the team’s interim coach, Raphael Laruccia. At least, that’s what the professional said in a press conference after the match, defending the performance of his players, as well as lamenting the lack of time to train.

I always like to look at the context, at the whole. Football is never just one thing. If we look at the game and the dynamics of the game, look at the numbers of the game, also look at the number of shots on goal… Cruzeiro had one more shot on goal than we did. Maybe this shows that there was not much superiority. It may seem that way because we tried to have a slightly more cautious stance, trying to protect the space inside and control the game.“, revealed the coach.

At another point, Laruccia commented on what he has been doing in charge of the team since taking over. He mainly regretted the short time to train, mentioning the game last Thursday, the 4th, against Vitória. According to the interim coach, it has to be based more on conversation and the energy of the players.

What we lack is time to work and train. We haven’t been training. We’ve been resting and talking a lot, but we haven’t been able to train. There are two days between one game and the next. It’s a lot of talking, trying to come up with strategies looking at what the opponent can offer. And trying to bring the guys onto the field with as much energy as possible, but if we look at it, it’s very difficult from a human point of view.“, he completed.
