With Ramirez listed, know what Galiotte thinks about chance of bringing a foreigner


Desired by Palmeiras fans, Spaniard Miguel Angel Ramirez is among the names analyzed by the board to take charge of the alviverde team. For President Maurício Galiotte, more than the origin of the next coach, what is fundamental is the style of play.

At just 35 years of age, the European coach stood out by winning the Copa Sudamericana 2019 at the helm of Independente del Valle. In the current edition of the Copa Libertadores, the Ecuadorian team thrashed Flamengo 5-0 at home and was beaten 4-0 as a visitor.

“The priority is not nationality. Whether the coach will be Brazilian or foreign, that is not what he will define. What will define is the concept of the game, that’s what we’re going to work on ”, said Galiotte, vice president during the unsuccessful passage of Argentine Ricardo Gareca, in 2014.
