Atletico striker vented after defeat to Verdão
O palm trees won Atlético-MG with authority and is getting closer to the title of the Brazilian Championship. It’s amazing how Abel Ferreira’s team knows how to play against Galo de Cuca, who even started well, with a few chances, but wasted and Verdão was fatal in the second half, with a rehearsed play in the corner and goal from the defender Murilo.
In the post game, Hulk gave an interview and made a very curious statement. According to him, Palmeiras always plays a lot closed with Atlético-MG, explores the counterattack and, therefore, managed to win. In the opinion of the Atlético striker, Galo could have scored two or even three goals in the first half.
“(…) It’s an injustice, but it’s football. Merit of Palmeiras, as always, against us they know how to defend well, they come out on the counterattack. They always do it well. It’s a very good team, but it’s very close against us. So, with less space, we create, we could have ended the first half with at least two or three goals scored (…)”, said Hulk.
It is worth remembering that Alviverde still complains a lot about the arbitration. the manager Anderson Barros went to a press conference and listed the mistakes that happened against Palmeiras. There is enormous dissatisfaction on the part of the São Paulo club against the referees’ decisions, especially in decisive games.
Many fans even insistently ask the president Leila Pereira express themselves, given that the top hat prefers to leave the scenario in the hands of the football department, unlike what the other representatives do. On the field, the next commitment from Palmeiras will be against Botafogo, on Monday (3), in Rio de Janeiro.
