Botafogo has a new leader in the locker room. It was Kanu, the 23-year-old defender, who was responsible for giving the lecture and encouraging his teammates before the match against Vasco, last Wednesday, who gave Alvinegro the classification for the round of 16.
In a video released by BotafogoTV, Glorioso’s YouTube channel, it is possible to see the defender pulling responsibility and pulling the positive current before the players climb to the lawn of São Januário.
– We came to be protagonists, this is our time. Let’s go together. We are champions, we are champions, don’t get that out of your head. Joy, guys. We want more moments like this, each game is final, each game is life. We are winners – shouted Kanu.
With the departure of Joel Carli in May, Kanu became the starter of the team led by Paulo Autuori. Gradually, the 23-year-old defender shows that he is developing a leadership spirit.
