Why Vancouver Whitecaps Coach Marc Dos Santos trusts Lucas Cavallini and Theo Bair

Despite the opinion of the fans, who consider that Bair and Cavallini do not complement each other well, coach Dos Santos trusts them a lot.

"That difference between the two players, they could complement each other well. What they need to become better is playing closer to each other. I like my two forwards to play close to each other, almost to have the ability with one or two touches to find the other one. That’s something that comes with habits and it comes with work.”, Dos Santos said.

However, there are many who consider that both have the same forward profile. Its characteristics go mainly through the physical and that is why other skills would be needed to have a more powerful attack.

Dos Santos justified his decision to use them together: “What I liked about Cava and Theo was the differences they have as players, where Cava is a player that likes to be in the box, likes to receive balls around the box”. “That’s an area where we have to grow as a team in our possession to allow now to get players like him closer to the box or in the box. And Theo, what he does well, it’s the way he attacks the space in behind, like the example of the play where a ball was played in behind and he had to make a run with Laurent Ciman, where he got to the end of the ball and played that cross to Cava”, he concluded.
