Interim coach Orlando Ribeiro has a new problem to assemble Santos that faces Internacional, this Saturday, at 3 pm, in Beira-Rio, for the 29th round of the Brazilian Championship.
Madson suffered a fracture in the fourth metacarpal of his right hand during training last Thursday. The right-back is immobilized in place and will train without contact until the fracture heals.

With that, Nathan should continue as a starter against Colorado. The player won the position in Peixe’s victory against Athletico-PR, last Tuesday, in Vila Belmiro. After the match, Orlando Ribeiro explained that Madson had a drop at the technical level:
– He is an athlete that we have a great affection for. We understand that he was not very good technically. At this moment we needed to give Nathan a chance, who had been training well. The Auro had been rising in production. There will be no shortage of opportunity, his will appear again and I’m sure he will recover. He is an experienced, quality athlete and has already proven his football.
In addition to Madson, Santos will not be able to count on defender Maicon. The player felt uncomfortable in the first half of the match against Hurricane. After examinations, a moderate injury was found in the posterior muscle of the right thigh and the athlete still does not have a deadline to return.
Left-back Felipe Jonatan received the third yellow card and will be suspended. The midfielder Camacho, who had pain in his left ankle, has recovered and will be listed for the match against Inter.
