In an interview with SporTV, Alecsandro praised the group’s commitment against Xavante and spoke of the sequence that Hurricane has as its principal to trust in the reaction and also to leave the relegation zone – the club is 17th in the classification.
– For everything we’ve been going through in the last few days, without a technical commission and without almost 20 players, it’s very complicated, very difficult. I think at that moment we have to congratulate the guys who came. We played a tough game against Brazil, it is always difficult to play here against them. It is to congratulate the game that we played. It was not possible to leave with the victory, but it was possible to leave with a tie for everything that happened during the week. We now have two games at home to get out of this uncomfortable situation. Everyone is to be congratulated – he said.
Figueirense will not have much time to rest until the next round. On Wednesday, at 4:30 pm (Brasília time), he receives the CRB at Orlando Scarpelli. The next opponent at home is Juventude.
