Alex is the best player in Brazil, says Santos manager
Santos' manager Claudinei Oliveira believes that Alex is now the best player in Brazil, following his superb performance for Coritiba on Sunday.
Alex scored twice as Coritiba tied 2-2 with Santos, for the eighth round of the Brazilian national league.
His performance impressed Claudinei Oliveira, who told reporters after the game: "No need to comment about Alex.
"Alex is perhaps the best player in Brazil, considering his quality and that Neymar and Paulinho left. He is very smart, always find empty places to play."
Claudinei Oliveira also explained why there was no man marking, he said: "I am not a fan of man marking. If I do so, Alex will know how to deal with the guy."
