Head Coach Jonathas Candido says, “It was a fantastic weekend of football in Bangkok, and our teams showed excellent performance playing our Cruzeiro style with high intensity, and making very good decisions on the pitch.

“We are very proud not just about the results, but also the tactical application, technical quality, effort, dedication, sportsmanship and very good behaviour the players showed.

“It’s rewarding to see all our teams play using the same football concepts, with all the coaches and players believing and embracing our ideas.

“A massive thank you to the school, coaches, players, and parents for supporting our football programme. We are already looking forward to the next challenge!”

Director Richards Stockings, adds: “I would just like to thank all the coaches, players and parents involved in our very successful weekend of football in Bangkok.

“It takes time to develop a philosophy of football and we are now starting to see the results of the patience everyone has shown with our programme.

“The focus of player performance above winning is certainly a methodology which allows our young footballers to develop and express themselves in a way which is unique to our style.

“As Director of Football, I am immensely proud of everyone who is involved.”
