Coach commented on the possibility of leaving the command of Verdão amid the good moment
After starting losing the match against Atlético-GO this Thursday (16), Palmeiras scored a comeback with four goals in five minutes to emerge victorious from Allianz Parque by the score of 4 to 2, in a game valid for the 12th round of the Brazilian championship. With another positive result, packing the third victory in a row, Verdão distances itself even further in the leadership of the competition.
With 25 points, the team led by Abel Ferreira opened a three-point lead to the vice-leader, rival Corinthians. In addition, the difference in goal difference has increased: both the best attack, with 23 goals scored, and the best defense, with seven conceded, in the entire championship. The good moment cheers the fans, who for some time were apprehensive about the future of the Portuguese coach.
According to UOL Esporte, Abel Ferreira would have a monthly salary of R$ 3 million in his new contract at Palmeiras, information that the club disputes, but does not expose values. After the game, the Lusitanian spoke about the possibility of leaving the club: “I never forget where I came from, who I am, the work I’m going to do. I’ve already said that one of the conditions for staying here is for my family to come.”
“I will fulfill my contract, I will only leave if Palmeiras sends me away”, added Abel Ferreira, who also exposed past dramas in his life. “I’m always grateful, every day, for the opportunity. Just the fact of breathing makes me feel rich. Not everyone knows, but I’ve been hungry. My parents studied up to third grade”, commented the multi-champion coach for Alviverde Paulista.
