Botafogo head coach Eduardo Hungaro on Macaé defeat: We had a bad game
Botafogo suffered an embarrassing defeat to Macaé on Saturday night and head coach Eduardo Hungaro conceded his team had a bad day at the office.
Last weekend they defeated Fluminense 3-0 and secured a good away point in the Copa Libertadores midweek.
Yesterday was a different story however as they crashed to a 2-0 loss to a team that plys their trade in the Brazil Serie C.
Lancenet.com reported Hungaro’s comments, he said: “Last week everyone was praising the beautiful game the squad did against Fluminense.
“It was really not good Saturday. I thought that we would be in a better situation, but there is still a glimmer of hope.”
The glimmer of hope the Botafogo coach refers to is for the Rio de Janeiro side to qualify for the knock-out stages of the Carioca State Championship.
Botafogo are currently 6th in the table, two positions and six points off the final qualifying spot, currently occupied by Vasco da Gama in 4th.
When Hungaro was pushed on what when wrong for his team against Macaé he choose to praises the opposition.
He concluded: “The way they set field, the positioning of the opponents, the opening and we made a bad game.”
