Having brought Luan Peres to Santos, Jorge Sampaoli found him this summer at OM. And the Argentine coach obviously needed the center-back to stick to his philosophy.
This summer has been very eventful at OM . Indeed, Pablo Longoria struggled, offering a dozen recruits to Jorge Sampaoli . Enough to allow the Argentine coach to build a squad in his image, especially responding to his philosophy. This was particularly the case at the goalkeeper post with the arrival of Pau Lopez , claimed by Sampaoli , who wanted a goalkeeper who could play with his feet to start from behind. And still in this philosophy of play, he also brought Luan Peres to the OM .
“Luan Peres came because Sampaoli wanted him”
Previously evolving in Santos, Luan Peres therefore put down his suitcases at OM , meeting on this occasion Jorge Sampaoli , his former trainer. And as explained by Caique Stiva , Brazilian journalist, the Argentinian needed Luan Peres in order to come out from behind as well as possible. “Luan Peres came because Sampaoli wanted him, because he saw him in this process. He has made a lot of progress, especially in his passing game. Luan often occupied the left side when needed, because he has defensive qualities, but also attacking. Even though he's a defender, he knows how to attack, ”he told So Foot.
