It is very important to have a consensus with the coach — Longoria
“It is normal that there are changes in the search for profiles. A player who is comfortable in one style of play, is not necessarily so in another. Last year, we started on profiles to have possession in the middle of the field and we had in particular Boubacar Kamara who had this role of central midfielder. With Igor’s way of playing, the two midfielders will have different characteristics with more intensity, an ability to occupy space. The strategy will therefore change for certain positions. As we said at the last press conference, the objective is to increase the quality of the squad, while giving continuity to the team. With the Champions League, I think we have to sign 5 to 8 players. During the transfer window, it is very important to have a consensus with the coach. I have always said that good leaders are those who have a good ability to adapt, to the club, to the city and to the identity. And also an adaptation to a new coach and his style of play. You must always meet the expectations of a new coach since it is he who will develop the players. » Paul Longori Press conference (05/07/2022).
