“I will be eternally grateful to my Technical Committee, more specifically to my direct assistants João Camargo and Virgil López and, of course, to the physical trainer Diego Falcão, as well as to all the people who were part of this working group in its most diverse moments. In addition, all the feeling of gratitude towards each athlete who was part of our path and who spared no effort to further raise the level of Brazilian women’s basketball,” he continued in the note.

“I end with a phrase that I have always used throughout our career: ‘In life there is no reward and there is no punishment. What exists is a consequence! ‘Sowing is free, but harvesting is mandatory!’ “May God bless each and every one of you immensely! Let’s keep moving forward!” concluded the now ex-Brazilian coach.
