The player ex-Flemish and the Vissel Kobe, Lincoln, arrived at Cruzeiro and is already released to play for Celeste. Lincoln is another bet in the fox transfer window, among other players like Wesley Gasolina, Marcos Cipriano, Bruno Rodrigues. Thus, in his first press conference held on Tuesday (16), he detailed how his physical condition is and also where he can perform more on the field.
Hired on loan from the Japanese team Vissel Kobe, lincoln signed with the team last week. So, since its arrival, it has been doing work to recover its physical form and be available for use as soon as possible. In addition, he also said that he is meeting the standards required by the coach Paul Pezzolano, since not Japan trained differently.
“The players are very qualified, all with their specific characteristics, but very qualified. They are already training that way (with a lot of intensity) and in Japan I was training in a different way. I'm still fitting in the way that Pezzolano asks”, he said.
“I am available and I want to play. I will do everything to help Cruzeiro get access and the title”, he declared.
In the attack of the cabuloso, lincoln will have competitions like Luvannor, Edu, Rodolfo and the Rafa Silva if you want to act as a reference man . If he acts on the side of the field, the player will have to overcome Bruno Rodrigues, Chay, Leonardo Pais and the Sthenium. Even with Leonardo and the Sthenium being in a recovery process, the dispute on paper would be against them.
How Lincoln can help Cruzeiro get the promotion that seems imminent
When I still defended the flamingo, lincoln came to play in all positions of the attack. He stated that he can repeat the tactical variation in the cruise case Pezzolano need during matches, but revealed which is his favorite.
“I'm here to help, but it's obvious that my preference is to play centrally. In today's training, I played as 'number 9' and a little further back too, but I manage to play on the side and play wide. I'm here to help and, whatever he (Pezzolano) needs, I'll be available”, he highlighted.
In this way, the cruise makes another investment for a campaign almost certain in the Series - next year. In addition, not only the early promotion is at stake, but also the title of Serie B champion. O gritty is currently at 53 points, 10 more than the runner-up Bahia, who has the same number of points as Celeste's next opponent, the Guild.
What the table shows is that it will be very difficult not to have the main division of the Brazilian championship with teams like Cruzeiro, Bahia, Vasco and Gremio . The last placed in the table, Basque, is just one point away from the two neighbors from above, this could be the real dispute within the G4, since Celeste is at least 10 points behind any of the other three teams. Still, teams like London and the Sport, who are glued close to the top four look like they will save themselves from relegation.
