Palmeiras ’win against Atlético-GO by 4-2, for the 12th round of the Brazilian Championship, is in the background thanks to a press conference given by Jorginho last night (16), at the Allianz Parque. The coach of the Goiás team harshly criticized the behavior of Abel Ferreira, coach from Palmeiras, claiming that he was disrespectful to the referee and even ironic in some situations.
“If you clap your hands at the referee, you literally want to ‘fuck’ the referee. So, it’s something that upsets me as a coach, as a Brazilian, because he came to our country and didn’t respect for our country, for our referees, “Jorginho said in a quote from the collective.
Jorginho recalled that Abel and other members of the Palmeiras coaching staff had already been fired due to complaints on other occasions and said he was expecting a severe punishment, which did not happen. The club alviverde, in turn, opposed Jorginho and said the demonstrations had a ‘xenophobic nature’.
To take advantage of the theme, we invited the columnists to UOL Esporte to answer the following question: Does Abel Ferreira have reason to complain so much about arbitration? See what they say:
From the outside, the complaints he makes are completely useless, but I know if they have anything to do with the cast. He’s not a fool, he should be fully aware of the abuse he has committed in relation to refereeing every game and, if he continues to behave, it probably means there is an unintended purpose. The continuation of the team being robbed during the game, who knows?
Jorginho lost all his reason when complaining about Abel’s exaggerations, his lack of control over the referee or Palmeiras ’defeat, when he adopted a clearly xenophobic and jealous language. With that “patriotism” so present in his interviews with Dunga in the 2006/10 cycle selection, we know what kind of people are the ultimate refuge.
No. He can contribute more to football if he can break the rule of the majority with refereeing as an opponent.
No, no, we have to control ourselves, even if the Brazilian arbitration is under criticism. But Jorginho only showed his xenophobic side, to divert attention from the four goals his team had claimed in seven minutes.
I think everyone has reason to complain a lot about refereeing, showing that it’s not biased, just bad. It would appear that every coach has his way of going to the edge of the grass and Abel’s is the more serious and enthusiastic way. You’ll keep being warned and fired, of course, but you have to think about maybe the same commitment part that made him coach.
There is no reason. But it’s not the only one. In Brazil, almost all coaches spend the entire game filling the referees ’pacovás. Jorginho’s post-defeat statements against Palmeiras seemed to me more of a shout out to a loser than anything.
Sometimes yes sometimes not. Depending on the game, on the pitch. But my impression is that he adopted the same strategy as most of the technicians working here. The plan is to force the referee for the next game.
No. Abel exaggerated his complaints. Like many other coaches in Brazil, everyone was subjected to the many yellow and red cards they received. But Jorginho’s words are actually very bad. They show the unbridled envy of a coach here for the undeniable success of a foreign coach who is better than him.
RENATO MAURÍCIO PRADO
Abel’s complaint was immeasurable. The referee was terrible overall, but he exaggerated a bit. But Jorginho pushed the bar. Nothing to do with lifting the ball.
No. His demonstrations were almost always exaggerated against the refereeing. The level of referees in Brazil is weak on average. All clubs can benefit or be harmed at times. If all the coaches decided to express themselves like him, the environment on the edge of the field would be even worse.
No. Now, criticism against the referee (an attitude that is the rule, no exception by coaches, Brazilian or not) is something less serious than Jorginho’s worthless and disgusting xenophobia.
