The Portuguese coach amended strong statements when talking about the search for an ideal team. He said reality prevents that and said that, without the rising of the boys, the Corinthians would fight against the fall.
– I wish they hadn’t played my job. Think of this team that everyone dreams of playing every game. Willian hasn’t played all the games and he’s gone, now he has a medical problem to solve. He didn’t play. Jo came out. In this ideal group that everyone has discussed, we will do the analysis. We have Renato (Augusto), who left with a muscle problem, he can’t play all the time. We try to manage it so that it doesn’t become a mess, so that it doesn’t get worse. Fagner has been injured in 11 games. João Victor I don’t know how many games. Gil has also been injured in a series of games. Fábio (Santos) too, about three games, I do not believe it is possible that he will play every three days, no way – according to Vítor Pereira.
– Anyone who comes up with this talk to find a team to play all the games played with me, they play with my work, they don’t see what’s going on. If we weren’t men, the Corinthians would fight the fall, but people don’t want to see the truth. They don’t really, at the club, in training, they don’t analyze the games and accompany this conversation. It plays into my work. How can I be satisfied now when I have to watch the next game and I have almost no people? We have to be honest, because the crowd is charging.

Vítor Pereira also clarified that he sees other teams as stronger than the Corinthians.
– The calendar is what it is. For me to have a competitive team in every game, I need a bigger squad, players with a higher technical level. I looked at some teams and the weapons were different. We can’t compare to others, because they have more solutions than us. I did what I could. The club did what it could, but didn’t have to. We cannot continue to ask if the truth tells us otherwise. The truth is that now, to make a substitution, I don’t have a left winger. I need to install Python. You don’t drive blablabla, trick people.

The coach blamed the team’s injuries and once again expressed dissatisfaction with the excuses for a better performance.
-We need João Victor, Júnior Moraes, Willian, Paulinho … Take a closer look at the squad we have and see what we have now in terms of solutions. Don’t sue me. We were up there, fighting there. This is not honest. Someone asking for more from the team is playing my job, and I can’t accept that.
More response from Vitor Pereira
-We played a quality first half, almost always installed in midfield attack, with interesting combinations. We were lacking in getting to the place to end the situations we were in. There was no presence at the time.
– Róger Guedes is not a 9, to surrender he must show up to play, as he is not the pivot to be seen in the area. I asked him to show up, because to score he had to show up. The fact is that the first part is good. The tasks are small, the solutions we have to do during the game. While we put pressure on the opponent, they didn’t reach our goal. In the second half, we lost capacity, the forward players lost strength, and we had to replace and have no replacement, so we lost quality. We didn’t score the second goal and by the end of the game we no longer had the ability to get the ball and move forward, and naturally we ended the game with the impression that the opponent was better. We didn’t score two or three goals in the first half and in the second half we lost capacity.
-I asked them to score goals, but with the players we have there is no way to cross, because we don’t have players who can win this ball. It had to be a fast crossing, and we worked hard on that, in the sense of anticipation, to create a surprise. We don’t have this presence, and we have this difficulty. In the first half, sometimes crosses come out and no one, everyone outside the area is waiting I don’t know what. It’s an aspect we have to live up to, but it’s also the result of the attitudes of the players we use.
– The club knows we have some problems in terms of solutions. We started the championship with a lot of problems, but the board will do everything possible, I believe. These things (hire) are internal.
– Due to our need, we have to play with their versatility. You need to see who can respond after three days. This rotation … Honestly, I’m tired of listening to things that don’t make sense. If we don’t rotate, we’ll argue and play, and if we don’t have guys to play, I want to see which team we play. I want to see someone come here and join this team to play in the middle of the week. It needs to be it and appreciated. The guys try and try and they help the team. Instead of thanking it, don’t. I mean a team and criticize. I tried to stabilize things, but I couldn’t stabilize anything. Who will be the top striker to play? Roger took the yellow. Giovanni or Felipe? Another man. This is the truth.
– Cantillo with the ball gives us quality. What I ask of him is that he is more aggressive without the ball and that from a defensive point of view he knows how to respond to positioning. That’s what I’m trying to do. Another player can help. We need it all. From men, from the elderly.
