Corinthians did not have a good start to the season, mainly due to the expectation that there was in the team that would be headed by Tiago Nunes. With names like Luan, Ramiro and Víctor Cantillo, Coringão reached the final of the Paulista Championship and ended up being defeated by rival Palmeiras. Since then, things have not found a positive path.
With his position in check, Tiago Nunes even tried some tactical variations, including putting Luan, the main contractor of the season and who did not present a good football, in the bench. However, it did not help. Without a good performance and far from ideal, the commander was dismissed.
To fill the vacancy, the alvinegra board brought Vagner Mancini, who was at Atlético-GO. In his first match at the helm, against Athletico-PR, away from home, a victory in the “Corinthians style”, sweaty, by 1 to 0 guaranteed the three points for Coringão. Already thinking about the next appointment of Alvinegro, the new treiandor should gain an important reinforcement.
Serving the Venezuelan team for the World Cup qualifiers and missing Timão in the last two games, Rómulo Otero should arrive in time to face Flamengo on Sunday (18), at the Neo Química Arena. The information was given first hand by Gazeta Esportiva.
The midfielder should arrive in São Paulo on Friday morning (16) and will participate in the afternoon training at CT Joaquim Grava. With 18 points, Corinthians occupies 14th place in the Brazilian Championship.
