Corinthians has an important match ahead. Timão faces Palmeiras, this Saturday, at Brasileirão at the Neo Química Arena. Although Sylvinho arrived under pressure at the derby, the coach has the full support of his teammates.
In a press conference on Friday morning, midfielder Giuliano commented on the pressure on coach Alfinegro. The player mentioned the nature of Brazilian football and explained why he believed in Sylvinho’s work.
“This impatience is felt not only by the fans, but by the press as well, due to the speed of Brazilian football. There is not much time to adapt to the player’s performance as he pleases. The fact that we have four important signings, there is pressure on the team to respond, but it is a process that takes timeGiuliano said.
“We are looking for a relationship, we have to believe we are doing our best. I understand Sylvinho’s pressure, the fans are excited, but it all depends on how you see it. I see seven matches without a loss instead of three matches with a draw. We are under construction, on a good path, and improving performance. “We must continue in this way,” he added.
Midfielder Alfinegro came to the coach’s defense and also noted how special Sylvinho’s work was. Giuliano noted that the coach works a lot and that the group has a completely different view of the fans, as they experience day after day with the captain.
“Often a fan depends on the opinion of others, he does not live to this day to this day. When you know day by day, how a person is doing, the vision is different. Sylvinho works a lot, gives all opponent information, individual information for the game. It conveys the opponent’s strengths and weaknesses. We have no difficulty with him. The organization of the team is up to him. They say he’s very defensive, but that’s important. We conceded a few goals and it is thanks to him for organizing defensivelyGiuliano explained.
“Our defensive system starts with scoring Joe goals, midfielders and defensive midfielders as well. Playing well, we have more chances to win. We have achieved good results, and the tournament is very difficult. Against the smaller teams, I understand the pressure to win, but we can’t take advantage of the opponent. If they say we can’t play and it’s out of merit, we need to admit it. They manage to compete. I’m not only here to defend Sylvinho, but the teams are doing a great job tooThe midfielder finished.
Not only the players’ support, Sylvinho also had the support of the Corinthians Board of Directors. The coach has not lost seven league games, but recent draws have increased the pressure on the fans.
This Saturday, Sylvinho will meet on the field against Palmeiras, in the 22nd round of Brazil, at 7 pm, at the New Coimica Arena. The coach is looking for his first win in the Classics since his arrival in Corinthians.
