Cuca admitted guilt for the defeat of Santos 1-0 for Atlético-GO on Wednesday night, in Vila Belmiro, for the 16th round of the Brazilian Championship.
The Santos team was better in the first half, but came back worse for the second stage. Lucas Lourenço took Jean Mota’s place at the break. The coach also added Marcos Leonardo, Tailson, Anderson Ceará and Sandry. All from the base.
“First half was good, well played, we had a sin when it came to scoring. We should and deserved to have scored a goal that would change the opponent’s posture. In the second, with the moves I made, the team didn’t fit anymore. We always try a restful player, a new suit to have some advantage. Did not happen. The team got lost in the moves “, he said.
“We gave Atlético a lot of counterattack. It’s my fault for the defeat. I will never play the responsibility for the boys. There is no way to come here and not take responsibility for this defeat,” analyzed Cuca.
Alvinegro felt the absence of Lucas Veríssimo, Jobson, Marinho and Soteldo and lost an unbeaten record of 12 games.
The team will return to the field to face Coritiba on Saturday, at Couto Pereira.
