Despite a tie with Flamengo last Sunday for the 32nd round of the Brazilian Championship, further reducing São Paulo's mathematical chances of winning the national title, an event served as the encouragement of the triple supporter who went to Morumbi: Helinho. He was promoted to the starting line in the half-time, the young striker took a few minutes to turn the net and claim the status of the "base world".
"I can say it was a childish dream, it was not the team's wish, but we will work during the week to evolve, we will have a difficult game in front of us against the Corinthians and we want a positive result," he said. 18 years old after a good thin left leg at the club's official channel.
Born in Sertãozinho, inside São Paulo, Helinho arrived in tricolor in 2012 and soon became known as one of the most talented and hopeful boys in Cotia, where the Morumbi clubs are housed. Multiple champions and consecutive draws in the core choices of the curriculum, shirt 37 was promoted to the professional cast which was also approved by André Jardine, his former coach.
Nevertheless, with such imagination and expectation for an opportunity, an early premiere of the boy was not expected. Aguirre was very cautious in promoting boys, as he did with Liziero and Luan, who were placed a few miles away. After the fight against Rubro-Negro, including, the coach warned about taking care of the younger.
The project of gradual placement of boys, however, was forced to change and remodel, both by lack of choices in the list and by the athlete's own quality. Luan, for example, surpassed Juicyi in the starting line, while Helinho himself earned a minute because of sectoral injuries, such as Everton Felipe and Rojas, both injured.
With a contract renewed recently until 2023, the 37th shirt, the scorer after four minutes on the pitch, is not expected to be a major part of the tricolor team by the end of the season. This is because internally there is programming for the boy and the understanding that the attacking average needs regular progression to contribute more minutes.
