– I am footballer. I have my ideas and opinions that are only mine. And I have a picture that I have proudly in my career. I often express my opinion on football. And when I feel that these topics are presented by the highest figure of the institution (President José Carlos Peres) in a way that I do not agree with, because I have a different opinion … I am sorry to return to the last conversation with you: I used this term. So … that's the decision. I love what I do, the club, the environment, people. We do different things, but I do not understand some concepts, lack of strategy in some situations – the leader corrected.
Autuori felt uncomfortable with a recent statement by President Jose Carlos Peres, who asked Cueva on Sunday to throw himself on the team in terms of value – the club plans to sell the athlete in January.
Cueva was removed from the team in September shortly after he ran into trouble at the Santos nightclub – he was not misused by coach Jorge Sampaoli. Soon after, Autuori clearly stated that the player would no longer be used this year.
– There is only one person who can bet or take a player in technical, tactical and behavioral terms. This is a trainer. I will defend it to death. Until recently, I was a trainer and I will never allow this kind of interference in the trainer's authority and freedom.
Autuori was employed by Santos in July this year and was already the strongest player who had the most time as President José Carlos Peres. Before him the club had Gustavo Vieira de Oliveira (45 days), Ricardo Gomes (two months) and a former Renato player who left the club shortly after the takeover and returned to the club as a technical development coordinator. .
The Football Manager is ahead of plans for the next season and is also responsible for restructuring the basic categories.
