In December of last year, I had the opportunity to take the risk of buying Cruzeiro – and the truth that I did not doubt. And he was very clear about things as they should be”, he recalled.
“The sporting part turned out phenomenally. But we still have a lot of work to do. We’re moving forward, but we’ve already taken a very important step that is moving up to the first division,” he added.
