Phantom’s coach can also spare some starters due to physical wear and tear
This Friday (13), Operário Ferroviário ended the preparation for the next round of Série B do Brasileiro. In 9th place in the championship with eight points won in six games, the Fantasma hopes to get even closer to the access zone to Serie A. For that, Claudinei Oliveira must promote some changes in the team. And who runs on the outside in the fight for the title is Silvinho, who has recovered from an injury.
In a press conference, the striker made himself available to the Operário’s coach, in addition to showing respect to the hierarchy: “I’m 100% already, I don’t feel the injury anymore. I played in the Campeonato Paulista, I played all the games, I’m fine with the rhythm of the game. Taking two weeks off is a little heavy, but I feel fine. Of course, I want to play, but that’s not just up to me, it’s up to the teacher. He’s a guy with integrity in what he does, whatever he decides is decided. He has good pieces”, declared Silvinho.
As he is coming back from injury, the tendency is for Silvinho to be passed over in the fight with Thomaz for a spot in the Fantasma attack. Due to physical exhaustion, some holders can be spared against the CSA, as in the case of Thales, who has the possibility of going to the reserve bench for the entry of Alemão. The tendency is for the rest of the Operário’s initial formation in the 2-0 victory over Criciúma, at Germano Krüger, to be maintained.
According to the GE, the likely lineup for Claudinei Oliveira is: Vanderlei, Arnaldo, Thales (German), Reniê and Fabiano; André Lima, Ricardinho, Marcelo and Reina; Thomaz (Silvinho) and Paulo Sérgio. It is worth remembering that defender Rafael Bonfim and midfielder Leandrinho are in the transition phase, while striker Jean Carlo and midfielder Fernando Neto remain injured. The Phantom faces CSA this Saturday (14), at 20:30, away from home, for the 7th round of Serie B.
