It must be an impolute image, you have to take care of it. It’s a topic worries me a lot. It is something very important to me. They can criticize us because you make the changes wrong, because you pose the parties wrong … For whatever reason, but not for the behavior. It is true that you have to understand people and moments. We are not all equal. Eder is a kid who has a great temper, which for many things is phenomenal. But you have to learn to control yourself. It is in it, try to improve this issue because we have already had situations of these. More and more sporadic, but … But it’s something we don’t like. It is no excuse that these situations are seen on the benches. It is an issue that Eder is trying to solve. He is a young kid, an impulsive kid, who has a lot of energy, which for many things is tremendously positive. But we are on the bench of a club you represent and the behavior should be faultless. It is true that there is an isolated moment in which anything can happen to you, you go crazy and you go down, but this must be tried to control it. “last_img read more
