Brazil reached the astonishing number of 13 foreign coaches in Serie A. It is a record here and in the Western leagues. More than in England, where no Englishman has guided a team to the title since Howard Wilkinson, with Leeds, in 1992. The Premier League has 12 of its 20 clubs managed by coaches born outside the United Kingdom. Among the locals, two Welshmen, one Scotsman and five Englishmen.
Foreigners there are those who are not British: 12.
Here are 13.
There is no problem with the entry of seven Portuguese, six Argentines and one Uruguayan into the Brazilian market. On the contrary, the championship improved. There is more diversity and more tactical variety. It doesn’t mean that Brazilians are worse, or that they need to be worse forever. Or, even, that knowledge cannot be produced here.
Sport is spreading, spreading culture.
It’s no use bringing Olympic champion Ruben Magnano to basketball in Brazil and, 13 years later, it has produced no benefit for the country’s sport. Today, Brazilian basketball has no star player, no coach and no team.
Nothing against the coach of your team, or the national team, coming from outside. As long as there is work, so that the natives evolve.
We complained about the rotation of Brazilians by several clubs. There is already the same phenomenon with Diego Aguirre, Antonio Oliveira and Jorge Sampaoli.
Brazilian coaches of the new generation do not establish themselves because clubs hire and fire as quickly as changing underwear. The sentence was said by the German Jurgen Klopp, in England, about the constant exchanges in the Brazilian.
Santos has just fired Paulo Turra after seven matches. In the last 30 months, it had eight coaches and two interims, who managed the team more times than two of the permanent ones. Corinthians became the first club in history to have four different coaches in the first four rounds of the Brazilian Championship.
We are used to calling this phenomenon “Brazilian football culture.” It should be called illiteracy. Changing coaches is not prohibited. It needs to be done with discretion and understanding that a team can only be formed with patience and continuity. Good team consecrates bad player. Bad team buries good player. If work grows, the stilt you hate may come to be admired.
Here, what matters is changing brand for brand. Big name technician by another imposing name. The adviser presses, the fan protests, the reporter needs news, and then the coach falls. And there goes a few more months to change the marking system, coverage, game output…
When Abel Ferreira arrived at Palmeiras, it was said that he played badly. Against America, in the semifinal of the 2020 Copa do Brasil, for example. Then it was said that the final won against Santos was ugly. Later that he only played on counterattacks. Afterwards, who won by a cool head and a warm heart.
Telê almost fell in São Paulo three months before winning the Libertadores. Luxemburgo lost the first five official games when he arrived at Corinthians in 1998. He was Brazilian champion at the end of that year.
Labor legislation provides for periods of 90 days of probation. In the Brazilian Championship, 9 of the 20 coaches have been in office for three months or less. They say that professionalism began to prevail in Brazilian football in 1933, after the split between those who fought for amateurism.
Professionalism was introduced, and advocates of amateurism win every day.
