Oswaldo de Oliveira heaps more praise on his Botafogo star Clarence Seedorf
Botafogo head coach Oswaldo de Oliveira said earlier this week that Dutch start Clarence Seedorf is the leader of this Botafogo team, his representative on the pitch.
On Wednesday, after winning 2-0 over Figueirense, the coach again heaped praise on the number 10, who scored one of the goals in the game, and also commented on the advice that the Dutchman gives on the pitch during the game.
He told reporters: "The opponents are changing and so are we. Seedorf is a guy who knows a lot of football and passes these things on, it's natural."
The 3 points in Florianopolis meant that Botafogo now have 47 points and are in seventh place in the table and still have a chance to gain a spot in the Copa Libertadores for 2013. However, Oswaldo foresees difficulties in the coming games and is refusing to talk up his teams chances.
"It's still early (to talk about the Libertadores). We have some big games coming up. These games will be fierce and perhaps violent. We need to react with calm and reasoning to in our game," he stressed.
Botafogo's next match takes place this Saturday against Atletico-GO.
