VP takes zero for sparing starting defense in the derby

The nightmare experienced by Corinthians seems far from over. Days after being eliminated from Libertadores by Flamengo, Timão suffered a heavy blow this Saturday (13). The 1-0 defeat to Palmeiras at the Neo Química Arena was another blow to the whites, who saw the arch-rivals open a gap of nine points in the lead of the Brasileirão. Coach Vitor Pereira feels the pressure increase, and the game on Wednesday (17) against Atlético-GO, on the return to the quarter-finals of the Copa do Brasil, will be decisive for his future – and the team from Goiás won 2-0 in going

At Live from Corinthiansprogram of UOL Esporte right after Timão’s matches, journalists Vitor Guedes and Ricardo Perrone evaluated the performances of Corinthians players in the classic against Palmeiras. There were criticisms of coach Vitor Pereira, mainly for sparing some of the team’s main players in the derby.

“It was clear that Vitor Pereira does not know what a derby is. He spoke after the match in Goiânia [derrota por 2 a 0 para o Atlético-GO] that Róger Guedes and Yuri Alberto could not play together. He lied as he climbed both of them. The best of the attack was Gustavo Mosquito, who he replaced for the second half. And Fábio Santos, Fagner and Gil, who are holders, stayed on the bench. He saved in the derby again”, criticized Vitão.
