President Duilio Monteiro Alves was another one to comment on the current situation of Róger Guedes at Corinthians. A constant theme in interviews, whether they are his own or not, the player watched from the bench the draw against Deportivo Cali, on Wednesday, and was left out of the field by choice of the coach for the first time since he arrived at the club. – check out the representative’s interview in the video above.
All this in the same week in which he had already commented on the rotation installed by Vítor Pereira, saying that he did not even know which game he was going to play until moments before the kick-off. It’s all part of the profession, in the manager’s assessment, who saw the 9 start in the 1-0 victory over Red Bull Bragantino.
“Róger Guedes is a great player, I think he is our top scorer in the season. He made and plays great games and will help us a lot. That’s all, there’s nothing more to it”, minimized the black-and-white representative in the mixed zone in Bragança Paulista.
Used as a striker against Red Bull Bragantino, Róger has reiterated several times that he prefers to play on the left wing. Against Avaí, after scoring three goals, he said he would work to show that he is right about the sector he wants to play in.
After playing in all the matches in which he was available for Sylvinho and Fernando Lázaro, shirt number 9 lost the condition of absolute starter. Before not entering Cali he had already been a substitute in two of the three Libertadores matches.
“Just as he didn’t play a game, many didn’t play either, it’s part of football and Vítor has made that very clear. He has been managing all the players very well so that we have all of them for all the championships“, Duilio continued.
