Alex: We are succeeding because we are a very organized team
Coritiba's midfielder Alex believes his team's success can be attributed to the team's exceptional organization.
The midfielder talked with FIFA.com about his current team, he said when asked why he chose to return to Coritiba: "To be honest, it’s as if I drew a circle. I started out there then went to Palmeiras, so I want to try to finish my career at the place it all began and go full circle."
When asked the difficulties of returning to Brazil after so long, he said: "The hardest part was off the pitch as my family had put down deep roots in Istanbul.
"I’d been thinking of the possibility of renewing my contract with Fener and ending my career there. I lived very well in Istanbul and my wife loved the city and the country."
When asked about his team's success, he said: "We have a modern coach and a modern coaching staff, who both pay great attention to detail.
"It's a team that has put in a great deal of work in terms of organisation. We know we have our limitations and, with those in mind, the coach has strived to put together a very organised side. Now this is starting to pay dividends. "
