The defender hasn’t played an official match since 15 March and was one of the highlights of the Oriente Petrolero beating
On loan from Athletico-PR until the end of the season with a fixed purchase option, defender Luan Patrick started his career well in a Bragantino shirt during the Campeonato Paulista. With new signings for the position at the request of manager Pedro Caixinha, the youngster ended up losing his position despite good games. Stopped since March 15, in the elimination of Massa Bruta in the Copa do Brasil, Luan was used again in the defeat of Oriente Petrolero, by Sul-Americana.
Team owner alongside Leo Realpe, the defender was one of the team’s great highlights in their 4-0 away triumph. Luan Patrick provided the assist for Braga’s first goal, scored by Sasha. Reciting during the 90 minutes, Luan celebrated the opportunity and vouches that he is satisfied with the individual and collective performance.
– After some time without playing I had a lot of expectations for this game, I prepared very well and stayed focused to be able to play a good game and help my teammates win another battle. Thank God that’s how it went, I was also able to contribute an assist for Sasha and I’m very happy with my performance and also with the whole team,” he said.
For the duel against Oriente Petrolero, Braga only had two native defenders available, given that in the medical department there are Eduardo, Natan, Lucas Cunha and Leo Ortiz. Given the circumstances and good performance, Luan Patrick is likely to be kept in the squad for Sunday’s duel against Santos for the Brasileirão.
– I’m here to help Red Bull Bragantino in the best possible way. Unfortunately we have some injury problems, especially in defence, but we have a strong squad with good options in all areas. I will continue to give my best every day in search of a sequence of matches, I found myself very well against Oriente Petrolero and I hope to continue to evolve more and more to establish myself here at the club – he added -.
