In the current cast, for example, there are names with respectable resumes wearing the alvinegro mantle: Cássio, Fagner, Gil, Fábio Santos, Renato Augusto and Jô.
How does Corinthians arrive for its birthday?
After a first half of ups and downs, with a change of coach, eliminations in the Copa do Brasil and Sudamericana and a poor start to the Brazilian Championship, Corinthians shows signs of recovery for the final half of 2021.
On the field, the team led by coach Sylvinho hit three consecutive victories in the Brasileirão and approached the first squad in the table. With 27 points, Timão occupies the sixth position.
Outside it, the transfer window was a reason for much celebration for Corinthians, who saw the club re-sign after eight months and with strong names. Among the main arrivals are midfielders Renato Augusto, Giuliano and Willian, and striker Roger Guedes.
