When praising Fiel and explaining his identification with Corinthians after the 2-1 victory over Atlético-GO, yesterday (28), coach Vítor Pereira used a traditional expression in Portugal, but little spoken in Brazil and that perhaps the most young people don’t know. The fact generated doubts and jokes among the fans who followed the live broadcast of the coach’s interview.
“I’m bread, bread, cheese, cheese, as it is said in my country. What I feel I say, what I don’t feel I don’t say”, said VP.
But what does “bread, bread, cheese, cheese” mean? The expression used by Vítor Pereira means being honest, frank, of course, not mincing words, going straight to the point.
Over more than seven months of work at Corinthians, this was certainly not the first time that VP used an expression or word that Brazilians are not used to hearing on a daily basis, as the Portuguese spoken in both countries has several differences. , especially in “football” language.
Therefore, the UOL Esporte created a dictionary with Portuguese expressions and words frequently used by Vítor Pereira in interviews. See some of them below.
Vítor Pereira’s dictionary:
- little bit = little
- playing ground = field
- Era = season
- Goal = goal
- Team = team
- Goal = goal structure (example: kicking on goal = kicking on goal)
- first and second part = first and second half
- face = face
- Fresh = rested
- offal = base boys
- spa = locker room
- cap = kick
- I reacted “hot” = express yourself with a hot head
- “We play with a full belly” = we play dazzled
Still with an uncertain future at Corinthians, since his contract expires at the end of the season and he still defined whether or not to stay at the club in 2023, Vítor Pereira has 12 more games ahead of him until the end of the year, two of them being the finals of the Copa do Brasil. Brazil against Flamengo, scheduled for October 12 and 19.
The coach aims to take Corinthians directly to the next edition of Libertadores. If you win the Copa do Brasil title, the goal will be reached. Otherwise, it will remain to seek the spot via the Brazilian Championship. With the victory over Atlético-GO, Timão overtook Flamengo and returned to the G4, with 47 points, two more than Rubro-Negro.
Corinthians returns to the field on Saturday (1), at 9 pm, when they host Cuiabá, at Neo Química Arena. Until the decision goes, Timão will still face Juventude (away) and Athletico-PR (home) for the Brasileirão.
