Rumors are that Mr Lothar Matthäus himself might be the next coach of Atletico Paranaense. Wow. This should be interesting. He hasnt found much success as a coach so far...his venture with the Hungarian national team was far from successful. But, I think this is a very good opportunity for Brazilian football. One thing that has stuck out to me in recent weeks was Max Bretos, the commentator for Fox Soccer Channel. As he was covering the World Club Cup final between Liverpool and Sao Paulo, he essentially was saying that Cicinho was too good for Sao Paulo and Brazil. I found this notion to be rediculous. People may knock on Sao Paulo for winning ugly, but they won against a European team, and I just cant imagine that a player can be too good for the Brazilian league. If Lothar does find his way to Brazil, I think this will be great. It's a way to elevate our league. I mean, Brazil is arguably the best footballing country in the world. And I think it's just crazy how some people view our league as a joke. Granted, we dont help ourselves with the corruption that goes on...although that's really more of a societal thing than anything else. Whatever. People hated Corinthians for joining the "Darkside" by having MSI invest in them. But hey, that's just the way you compete in the global market. Money has made Corinthians a very good team, and they will only continue to grow with their new state-of-the-art stadium (This is quite painful as a Palmeirense) Anyways, Lothar to Brazil, if it pans out, I like it. Should be good for his career, and Atletico are a solid Brazilian club. And it should be good for Brazil.
