Pablo was hired in 2019 by São Paulo after standing out for Athletico-PR, but he couldn’t stand out like before at Morumbi. Last season, he was a reserve most of the time and, despite the 13 goals during the year, he did not convince the fans.
– Pablo was an investment of R$ 26 million. In my possession, São Paulo was notified by Athletico to pay the debt balance. São Paulo, in the previous administration, paid one part and did not pay the other. And it was already running because 40, 50% of the purchase was missing. We pay. But now we want the end to be good for the athlete and, mainly, for the institution – he added.
