I text Dorival before the games, I send him good luck, and he always responds with great affection. After the games here too, he sends me a message, I’m very happy. It’s gratifying to maintain that connection, it’s a sensational group. I’m still in the (WhatsApp) group, it’s a lot of reviews, it’s a never-ending review (laughs). The group is good”, said.
