Barroca was introduced last Saturday afternoon, when he also commanded the first activity. The commander was hired to replace Ramón Díaz, who didn’t even train the team. The Argentine underwent surgery shortly after being introduced and left the team under the command of his son and assistant Emiliano Díaz.
After three losses in three games, Botafogo decided not to continue the work when they learned that Ramón would need to stay away for a longer time, at least until December 7th. Now the club will have to deal with the absence of the new coach even longer.
There were 418 days between the resignation, on October 6, 2019, until the announcement of Barroca’s return, last Friday. Everything was set up in a few hours. Last Thursday night, the board hit the hammer for Ramón’s departure. Then he made contacts and managed to remove the then coach of Vitória.
The players did not like another change of command. But, having made the decision, the choice for Eduardo Barroca was well received. The moment of good football and results that happened in part of 2019 generated positive memories. The fact that he knew the cast weighed in favor of the new coach. Because despite the many changes, most of the athletes came from the base divisions and have a history with the coach.
