This “crisis” that is starting to haunt Parque São Jorge got even worse after a post-elimination news.
Annoyed, Benjamin Back said that Alvinegro will not win any titles this year if they continue with the Portuguese Vítor Pereira in charge of the team: “It’s impressive that with this coach, Vítor Pereira, Corinthians won’t win anything. Corinthians runs the risk of losing everything, Brasileirão, Copa do Brasil… because Vítor Pereira’s lineups are worse than the other”criticized.
In addition, as reported by Globo Esporte, the journalist also brought the information that Willian may have played the last game for the team, as he should leave for Fulham, from England. President Duílio Monteiro Alves ended up being questioned about this matter and confirmed that there is such a possibility:
“There is, yes there is (chance to leave). That’s why I don’t want to go deeper, we left it to have this conversation after today’s important game”stressed the Corinthians representative. It is worth remembering that the desire to change places is also on the part of the ace, as his family has not adapted to Brazil.
