Diego Cavalieri lauds the arrival of coach Borges at FluminenseCavalieri once played for Liverpool in England
Goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri has praisied the impact of new head coach Cristovao Borges as Fluminense continue to make a strong start to the current campaign; the Rio de Janeiro club have won their opening two league games and are scoring goals for fun in the early rounds of the Copa do Brasil.
Cavalieri, 31, told Lance that the arrival of Borges has lifted the team: "I think Borges is a man who has had a great influence on all that is happening."
"He arrived and deployed his his philosophy in a practical way and I think he deserves more credit than the players."
"I do not compare with Renato Gaucho (former coach), everyone has his own way of working and we are very aware that we are only at the beginning."
After winning the Brasileirao in 2012, Fluminense struggled last term and only escaped relegation courtesy of a controversial Portuguesa points deduction.
