After Sunday’s game, the coach talked about Renato Augusto and Fagner’s tendency to return to the starting lineup next Thursday.
– The indications we had from the medical department is that we could play for around 30 minutes with Renato and Fagner, we couldn’t take more risks, there were two muscular situations. Renato’s by impact, which took time to train, one on top of the other, today at the first moment he took another hit to the same twin, but I hope he actually has conditions, he’s a very important player.
– Fagner as well. Today we had to play with Bruno on the side, who is a defender, in defensive terms he gives us something, but up front he doesn’t get involved in combinations. We were lame on that side. As Rafael has a problem, he came to the game and felt again, the importance of Fagner coming back is great. I hope to count on them,” he said.
A probable Corinthians against Fluminense may have cassio, Fagner, Balbuena, Gil and Fábio Santos; Du Queiroz, Fausto Vera and Renato Augusto; Gustavo Mosquito, Róger Guedes and Yuri Alberto.
