The striker did not start the season very well, he fluctuated at various times and began to be criticized by a good part of the white-and-white fans.

“When I was in bad shape at Santos, I didn’t want to leave. My wife wanted to go out to dinner and I was embarrassed. Friends: ‘Where are you? We saw you more in China’. Once, on a Monday, I called 2 friends to a bar and started crying there”, said the player.
Today, the top scorer managed to rescue the admiration of Santos fans and, mainly, the respect. Many even criticize coach Fabián Bustos for taking him out during games.
