“It’s playing with my work”

Corinthians beat Góias 1-0 on Sunday and are second in the Brasileirão, with the same 25 points (but one game more) as leaders Palmeiras. Late in the game, Portuguese coach Vítor Pereira complained about the lack of options (many players injured) and responded to criticism he received for making too many changes to the starting XI.

Lack of choice: “I would like them not to play with my job. Let’s imagine this team that everyone idealizes to play every game. Willian hasn’t played every game and is absent today. [ontem] has a medical problem to solve. Jo is out. From this ideal team that everyone is talking about, let’s analyze it. We have Renato (Augusto), who left with muscle problems, he didn’t play all the time. We’re trying to manage it so it doesn’t turn into chaos, so it doesn’t get worse. Fagner was injured: 11 away games. João Víctor I don’t know how many matches. Gil was also injured for a series of games. Fabio (Santos) too, about three games, I don’t think it’s possible for him to play every three days, it’s not possible.”

Criticism for not repeating the same starting XI: “Whoever talks about finding a team to play every game plays with me, plays with my job, doesn’t see what’s going on. If we didn’t have the kids, Corinthians would be fighting for maintenance, but people don’t want to see the truth. They’re not in reality, at the club, in training, they don’t analyze games and come up with this conversation. It’s messing with my job. How much would be- I satisfied today, when I have, I have to watch the next game and I have almost no one? We have to be honest, because then the fans charge.

Tight schedule in Brazil: “The calendar is what it is. For me to have a competitive team in every game, I need a bigger team, the players have a higher technical level. I watch certain teams and the weapons are different. We can’t compare with anyone, because they have more solutions than us. I did what I could. The club did what they could…”

Don’t come to me with demands. It’s dishonest “A person who demands more from the team is playing with my job, and I can’t accept it. Because of the need we have, we have to play with the versatility of the players and the training. Three days later. This rotation… Honestly, I’m sick of hearing things that don’t make sense. If we didn’t do this rotation, I’d like to see what team we’d be playing with. I’d like to see someone a come here and put this team together to play midweek. It has to be that and valued.”
