The Portuguese boss has demonstrated an unlimited passion for working and for winning in six short months, challenging preexisting ideas, and awakening the sleeping giant of Brazilian soccer.
Ask any Brazilian what he thinks of Soccer, and his response will tell you how the nation feels about the sport.
Soccer is a fundamental part of Brazil’s culture. This country has won the highest number of World Cups, is the only country to have qualified for every World Cup tournament, and holds the title of the only country which has scored the most goals of all time. It also holds the record for the highest number of consecutive wins in the World Cup play. The sport is enjoyed nationwide and has deep sentimental value for the nationals. Soccer fever is always around in Brazil, especially since Flamengo’s fate was turned around by Jorge Jesus, a Portuguese professional coach who took up the challenge.
