Tension in Palmeiras. Abel publicly calls for expensive reinforcements. Leila, disappointed with what she spent in 2022, says no – Prisma
Sao Paulo Brazil
“Of course we have now to look for reinforcements. We should perceive that Palmeiras is a accountable membership, it has monetary and sporting objectives.
“Finances are met or virtually met. Now we have now to contemplate sports activities as effectively. Of course we’re wanting for a high quality participant and high quality pays.
“They gave 20 million (euros) for Danilo and also you pay for high quality. Of course we’re wanting for a participant for that place. As I mentioned final yr, if no one leaves, no one comes.
“This yr is out and the standard has to return via. But high quality prices cash.”
The outburst got here from Abel Ferreira after the disappointing 0-0 draw in opposition to Sao Bento at Allianz Park yesterday.
Confirming what the weblog superior from final yr, the coach needs new items to produce other play choices.
Even extra the lack of two primary athletes, equivalent to Danilo and Gustavo Scarpa.
He named names that he thought could be ultimate.
But it met with resistance from President Leila Pereira. She stays radical, believing that the grassroots can remedy the workforce’s issues.
Even with the conservative funds, Palmeiras expects to earn greater than R$704 million in 2023, in addition to greater than R$240 million that the membership will obtain, as 60% of the R$400 million , from the sale of Endrik, which can be solely a part of the steadiness for 2024.
Abel is aware of about Leila’s obsession with the bottom. But it was clear that the workforce urgently wanted a energetic, aggressive midfielder to exchange Danilo. Asked Mateus Enrique, ex-Gremio who performs for Sassuolo, a small Italian workforce. And additionally prompt Jean Luca from Monaco.
Sassuolo didn’t need to lend, he solely accepted to promote. The Italians paid €10 million, round R$55 million, in 2022. The participant solely appreciated because the membership stayed in the First Division. The first request was for €15 million, about R$82 million.
Palmeiras tried the mortgage, which was denied.
Monaco didn’t even need to begin negotiations for Jean Luca. He would solely depart if Danilo went to the French membership and never Nottingham Forest to play alongside Scarpa in England.
Abel Ferreira was additionally enthusiastic about Claudinho.
As the weblog stories, he has even reached a wage and permanence settlement at Palmeiras.
But the leaders of Zenit will not be in promoting the midfielder. Not for the ten million euros, about R$55 million, that Palmeiras even thought of paying. They requested for 12 million, 66 million R$, then 15 million, about 82 million R$. And now the mediators are speaking about €18 million, about R$99 million. It’s clear they do not need to promote. Or they’re ready for a proposal they can not refuse.
And this “supply that can’t be repeated” is not going to be from Palmeiras.
Leila Pereira was very disappointed with the results of the gamers the membership signed in 2022.
Jose Manuel Lopez, Merentiel, Navarro, Atuesta, Murillo, Lomba, Jaelson and Rodrigo Tabata.
There had been eight employed.
Only Murillo established himself as a starter.
For a yr and a half they pressured her to hire, for instance, quantity 9. And introduced two without delay. The Argentine Lopez and the Uruguayan Merentiel.
And who begins the yr as absolutely the starter is Endrik.
In different phrases, with the businesswoman imaginative and prescient that Crefisa’s proprietor has, Palmeiras is losing cash.
It due to this fact created obstacles in the face of Abel Ferreira’s urgent requests to soccer supervisor Anderson Barros for reinforcements for this season.
Palmeiras, amongst all 20 golf equipment in Serie A subsequent to Brasileiro, is the one one which has not even signed a contract in 2023.
The coach was affected person.
Seven athletes rose from the bottom to the principle workforce. Everyone from the below-20 workforce.
Non-phenomenal gamers like Endrik.
They want expertise, expertise earlier than establishing themselves amongst professionals.
After a disappointing 0-0 draw in opposition to Sao Bento, Palmeiras will face Botafogo, who beat Portugal yesterday, in Ribeirao Preto subsequent Wednesday. Then there would be the derby in opposition to Sao Paulo at Allianz Park. And on Thursday the twenty fourth, Ituano, in Itu.
Those three video games after which Flamengo, in Brazil, on the twenty eighth.
Evaluating the Brazilian Super Cup.
Abel Ferreira is aware of how strengthened Vitor Pereira’s workforce is, which was already very robust.
Gerson was the nation’s greatest signing at first of 2023.
The Palmeiras coach remembers very effectively dropping the 2021 Brazilian Super Cup to Flamengo.
And it is a title he needs to win, not least as a result of he nonetheless options for Brazil’s nationwide workforce.
Palmeiras has 13 days to name for reinforcements.
Or discipline a “brief” lineup, as Abel places it, in opposition to Flamengo.
We may need to waste the Brazilian Super Cup once more for administration to react.
For now, Leila is agency.
He would not need to signal gamers he considers expensive.
Like Claudinho and Matheus Erik…
