Santos receives the “challenge” from Vitor Pereira and has a new way to play at Flamengo – Flamengo – News and Flamengo

Vitor Pereira wants a team that works with higher lines, and Santos will have a new advantage in Flamengo’s goal.

Flamengo lost 1-0 to Vasco da Gama on Sunday (05) for the Guanabara Cup. After the match, Vitor Pereira spoke a little about goalkeeper Santos, who scored a penalty kick in the match. The coach revealed that he challenged the pitcher to act differently: more forward on the red and black goal.

We launched a challenge for Santos to play more advanced. Because if we want to press high we need a goalkeeper like a free player in the back of the defensive line. This is a challenge and adaptation that he made and developed. We asked him for serenity to find the free man in the first phase of construction and he improved. I am satisfied with his work – he said in an interview after the match.

Vitor Pereira’s goal is to block fast counter-attacks from opponents and also demand attacking play starts from the goalkeeper himself. From the point of view of the technical committee, Santos did not have the characteristic of defending the defensive system, when the defensive line was high, nor thinking about the offensive plays of the team.

From then on, Santos began to coach the positions requested by Vitor Pereira. In addition, the goalkeeper took a penalty kick in Flamengo x Vasco, which was taken by Pedro Raul. It is important to note that Archer was receiving a lot of criticism from the fans, due to his defense of some penalties.

The Flamengo goalkeeper is now focused on his next team commitment. Rubro-Negro faces the Fluminense, at 21:10 on Wednesday (08). The match is valid for the final round of the Guanabara Cup, and the two teams are fighting for the title shift. This is because Mengão is the leader with 23 points, while Tricolor is second with 22 points. Whoever wins is guaranteed a trophy. Tie takes the cup to Javea.
