[Brazilian tactician, Vanderlei Luxemburgo, admitted that the only superstar currently playing in the Campeonato Brasileiro is Sao Paulo midfielder Hernanes] For me there is only one superstar in Brazil: Hernanes. He has everything a footballer needs. He can play with both feet, he marks, he’s dynamic, and he can get past players with ease. He is a player who is good at finishing, and he also helps at the back. I prayed so that Muricy wouldn’t put on another striker. Roque Junior is returning, and we needed his experience. I had to take a risk. I had to take off Mauricio who is 19 years old and I left on Roque, who is 32

[Vanderlei Luxemburgo tells Flamengo supporters to forget the Ronaldinho of Barcelona] Forget the player from Barcelona or the Brazilian national team. He’s 31 years old, he is no longer a physical force. But he has the talent and we have to take advantage of this. For him, the training sessions aren’t good, playing is the best way for him to find his rhythm

[Flamengo’s Vanderlei Luxemburgo urges Ronaldinho to show his true colours] Taking Ronaldinho off is something normal, I have done the same with other players. The thing is that I need to keep Ronaldinho on the field. He was signed to be the star, the main reference. Taking Ronaldinho off is easy, but he needs to be on the field and feel the fans demanding things from him. I put him on [against Figueirense] because he could decide the match in a set-piece, in an individual play. We need the best Ronaldinho, the player who can make the difference for us

[Flamengo coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo praises Ronaldinho after Internacional victory] We know that this group is very together. They want to take the team into the Libertadores. Ronaldinho, as the leader, called on them to do more. This is still not over. We still have to play the last game, against a rival that is fighting for the title. It is a crucial game and we are still looking for our place [in the Copa]

[Vanderlei Luxemburgo on becoming Real Madrid coach] I was going to Madrid. I got on the plane and I saw Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos. We greeted each other and they said, ‘Cool, you’re going to Spain on holidays’. I said, ‘No, I’m going to Spain to coach you two! They were stunned

[According to the club’s former coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo, Cristiano Ronaldo’s exit is to blame for Real Madrid’s underwhelming start to the 2018-19 season] It does change. Cristiano makes all the difference. I’ve worked for Real Madrid and I know that such a special player worries opponents - big opponents. Real Madrid don’t have a player now that makes the opponent feel they are dead. You know, that feeling of ‘I have to face Cristiano Ronaldo’. Madrid don’t have such a reference in the current squad

[The pressure is on Lopetegui because of their recent poor run, but Luxemburgo - sacked in December 2005 after 11 months at the helm - thinks Perez will not make a hasty reaction] The pressure is always intense there. We are talking about the biggest club in the world. If the results aren’t coming, the pressure will always be huge, but Florentino Perez is a clever and successful man, and I believe that he knew this would be a difficult season for them. It would never be easy to replicate the previous titles. He knew it. So, I believe that he’s calm now, waiting the right time for doing more investments in the squad to make Madrid champion again

[Guarani coach Wanderlei Luxemburgo noted when announcing this weekend that his entire squad would enjoy three days off to take in Carnaval] It is a party in Brazil, rooted in our culture. These games that come in the middle of the holidays should not exist. I love Carnaval and we will see if I take part in the parade.
