Atlético line-up against Caldense
New coach of Galo, Eduardo Coudet makes his debut in the team today. Since his signing, the fans have been very excited, mainly due to the daring and demanding profile of the Argentine. Expectations are high to see what the “calling card” will be.
Coudet makes warnings and considerations, but indicates that fans will like the team’s style. According to him, Atlético will not show its best level against Caldense.
– We need time to work, more and more we are feeling more comfortable with the day to day, with the way of training and playing. We can’t relax, we have to keep working. We are going to show things that fans like, we know how Atlético fans are and how they like the team to play. And we are going to pursue this together”, said Coudet.
“Certainly we are not going to see our best version, but we already want to show something and grow. We intend to get closer as quickly as possible to the game we want to make.”
Atlético’s likely lineup today against Caldense is as follows: Everson; Paulo Henrique (Leo Simoni), Jemerson, Bruno Fuchs and Rubens; Allan, Edenilson and Pedrinho; Ademir (Paulinho), Vargas and Hulk.
Atlético signed six players for 2023: defender Bruno Fuchs, right-back Paulo Henrique, midfielders Edenilson, Igor Gomes and Patrick and striker Paulinho. All of them are registered with the IDB and are available to Coudet.
Patrick, the last one hired, was in São Paulo and signed a contract until 2025. The midfielder was requested by the coach, with whom he had worked at Internacional.
“I hope (that the work with Coudet) is the best possible. We made a partnership at Internacional, so much so that this affection for each other continued. I hope it can be put into practice here too and that we can bring a lot of joy to the Rooster”, said Patrick.
Patrick, 30, arrives at Atlético after passing through São Paulo in the 2022 season – there were 55 games, nine goals and eight assists. Before, at Inter, where he played from 2018 to 2021, the midfielder lived the best moment of his career.
