On vacation and in a World Cup mood, Palmeiras closed the year 2022 with a golden key. Once again, the alviverde team proved to be imposing, just as they sing in their anthem and were among the highlights of the year in Brazilian football. Abel Ferreira’s team secured its eleventh Brasileirão cup, the first for the coach in charge of the Club, in addition to great prestige. The mostly high-ranking players also got the highlights they deserved.

In 2022, Palmeiras had seven reinforcements for the Libertadores, Copa do Brasil and Brasileirão disputes, in addition to the Recopa and Paulistão, two other titles won in the first half. Still in the window at the beginning of the year, Verdão signed Murilo, Marcelo Lomba, Jailson, Rafael Navarro and Atuesta. During the season, Merentiel, José López and Bruno Tabata arrived, reinforcements for the second half of the team.

Among those mentioned, one arrived, conquered Abel and the Palmeiras fans as a whole. It is the defender Murilo, who of all the reinforcements was the most used during the year by the coach. Still in February, the player had already taken over the starting lineup alongside Gustavo Gómez, mainly due to the fact that Luan had been injured, so the two formed a solid defense and goalscorer duo.

The others did not have the same protagonism as the defender, they were even triggered by Abel Ferreira, but in Murilo’s view it was ‘nothing’. In all, the player was present in 57 games, scoring 11 goals. In addition to him, two other protagonists who came off the bench were Atuesta and Navarro, but none of them gained as much prominence as the defender.
