Palmeiras lost to RB Bragantino 1-3 in the match of the sixth round of the Brazilian League. And at the end of the match, coach Abel Ferreira did not hide his disappointment.
“In March, to make it clear to everyone, I delivered a report to the board of directors with everything that was needed. Palmeiras needed players to compete in the Recopa, the Brazilian Super Cup and the Paulista Final. Now, I don’t have a backup. I have been without hope for a long time. When will the reinforcements arrive? In August? In August, it is already over and it will be difficult”, he shot the Portuguese coach.
A disappointed Abel even quoted Guardiola: “In the Champions League final he was asked a question about Foden. He said, ‘I don’t know what it will be like next year, whether he is willing to listen in the same way, whether he will do his best for the team. He stays on the bench when he has to. “It is this message that I wanted to leave to everyone. I think just like when we won the Libertadores and the Copa del Rey. Not even when I arrived the team was weak as they said, and now we are not the best in the world as some would say.”
With the defeat to RB Bragantino, who led the Brazilian team with 14 points in six matches (Atletico Paranaense, coached by Portuguese Antonio Oliveira also has 12 points in four matches), Palmeiras has 10.
