Brazil was at all times identified for exporting soccer expertise around the globe. However whereas Brazil had many gamers shining in lots of leagues around the globe, the coaches weren’t so nicely regarded. Proper now, the principle coaches within the nation are foreigners. Actually, the explanations are multifactorial, however some are on the core of all the pieces.
The nation had many good coaches, names as Vicente Feola, Rubens Minelli, Oswaldo Brandão, and Telê Santana – most likely the largest of them – whereas not so well-known exterior Brazil, they had been very profitable, producing many good groups and creating ideas that mirrored a interval of Brazilian’s soccer dominance.
Different names have additionally totally different levels of success exterior Brazil, like Otto Gloria in Portugal, Ricardo Gomes in PSG (1996-98) and Bordeaux (2005-2007/2018-19), Leonardo in Milan (2009-2010) and Inter (2010-2011), Vanderlei Luxemburgo in Actual Madrid (2004-2005), who left the nation very nicely regarded and managed Madrid through the Galácticos Period and left as a legacy a sandbox in Valdebebas, that could be very consultant for causes that can be disclosed within the subsequent traces; and eventually, most likely essentially the most profitable Luis Felipe Scolari aka Felipão, finalist of Euro 2004 and 4th place with Portugal in 2006 World Cup and Chelsea (2008-2009).
This reveals us that Brazilian coaches had been good and profitable even exterior the nation and at this time don’t have house within the native golf equipment, with names like Abel Ferreira, Jorge Jesus, Jorge Sampaoli, and plenty of different overseas coaches in Campeonato Brasileiro. In the mean time that this textual content is written, 8 of 20 coaches from Brazilian Série A are foreigners. Tite already introduced he’s leaving the Nationwide Workforce and the Portuguese Jorge Jesus seems to be the favourite to be the brand new coach, after Guardiola’s refusal. However what are the explanations behind that?
One of many fundamental causes is illustrated with Luxemburgo’s sandbox in Valdebebas. Based mostly on the notion that Brazil had the very best soccer on the planet, 5 occasions champions, the established order contained in the nation was: we don’t have to check, we’re the lecturers. Whereas smaller international locations began to check soccer utilizing science to compensate for his or her deficiencies, Brazil slept on its success and saved doing the identical coaching and tactical theories from the 90-beginning to the 2000s. “We don’t must be taught something, we’re the 5-time champions”.
However then, steadily, video games just like the Germany 7×1 Brazil 2014 World Cup semifinal, Barcelona 4×0 Santos Membership World Cup last began to occur. In Brazil, the largest objective, the largest event for a crew, is the Membership World Cup and since 2001 with Palmeiras x Manchester United, no different crew was in a position to play towards Europeans or defend 90% of the time or being massacred. Everybody contained in the nation began to marvel what occurred with the five-time world champions.
One of many conclusions was that our coaches are outdated. Whereas that is too easy for a posh drawback, it’s a part of the rationale. Then, Brazilian coaches began coming to Europe to observe coaching periods from Guardiola, Klopp, Mourinho, and plenty of others. They took an image with these well-known coaches, printed on all social networks, however had been unable to elucidate the whys behind these coaching periods and concepts, and didn’t even have the will to ask. The vital was the photograph to point out the followers that they aren’t outdated, though they saved doing the identical factor they did as gamers within the 80s and 90s.
One other attribute is to place the blame on one thing else, with essentially the most well-known being “we don’t should suppose or practice, simply play”. After the poor outcomes, they began this time doing the identical issues that occur in Europe, however with out understanding, with out intentionality, doing it as a result of they noticed a video of Guardiola doing it. Doing even antagonistic periods in the identical coaching session, as a result of they noticed the video of nice coaches doing it.
Then, the large native groups like Flamengo and Palmeiras began to convey European coaches and dominated the native soccer. The Brazilian coaches reacted defensively once more, saying they did the identical factor as these European coaches. However this time was too late and the Argentinians and Europeans dominated the native state of affairs.
These Argentinian and Europeans have studied. Developed their very own colleges. They used science and know-how of their favor. However CBF has its personal course, which is a requirement to have the license to coach in Brazil. And right here lies another issues. In accordance with individuals who had been a scholar there, the standard of the course could be very low as compared with the remainder of the world, with the lecturers saying truisms. The value of these programs can also be one other drawback, being economically inconceivable for the soccer fanatic to strive a profession. It’s not unusual for workers from large golf equipment going to Argentina to have the identical lessons which might be supplied by CBF, however with higher high quality.
Lastly however not least, it’s widespread in Brazil, after 3 consecutive losses, the coach is fired. That could be a cultural factor in Brazil, the tradition of immediacy. That is fed by the sense in Brazil that we have now many large groups. As an alternative of the English prime 6, the Italian prime 3, or the double in Spain, Brazilians prefer to suppose that Palmeiras, São Paulo, Santos, Corinthians, Flamengo, Vasco, Botafogo, Fluminense, Inter, Grêmio, Atlético Mineiro and Cruzeiro are all large groups and all of them should be champion. Since Brazil is the five-time world champion, in response to the native perception, they’ve essentially the most quantity of massive groups. A lot of them are usually not related for a few years, however that is one other fact that when proven to the locals, can be just like the 7×1, like Dorian Grey trying on the mirror. That is additionally sustained by the truth that along with the continental event, the nation league, and cup, Brazil additionally has state and generally even regional tournaments. As an alternative of three possibilities to be champion within the 12 months, they’ve 5, which makes for the followers nearly an obligation to win silverware yearly.
Brazilians are nonetheless excellent and related for soccer, as their coaches can as soon as once more be, as soon as they face the reality, cease giving excuses and affiliate data, science, and know-how with the native expertise.
