As soon as referee Wilmar Roldan ended the 1-1 draw with Atlético-MG at Mineirão and Palmeiras guaranteed the classification for another Libertadores final (Verdão awaits the winner of Barcelona-EQU x Flamengo, this Wednesday), Abel Ferreira and the Verdão players vent.
Starting with the coach, who before the match showed discomfort when questioned about the defensive way Palmeiras played in the first leg, the goalless draw at Allianz Parque.
After qualifying, the Portuguese shouted a lot towards one of the broadcast cameras and even had to be stopped by assistant Vitor Castanheira and football manager Cícero Souza. In his press conference, the Portuguese says that the message went to a “boring neighbor”.
– It wasn’t for any Atlético-MG player or his coach. I have a neighbor who lives in my building who is a pain in the ass. It went directly to my neighbor, because I’m in charge of my house. Is silent! Who works within the CT is me and my players. I defend my players because they are mine in wins and losses. To my neighbor, “shiu”! – he replied, motioning with his hand as if to close his mouth.
