Due to Data Fifa, Corinthians will only return to the field next Wednesday (28), when they will face Alético-GO. But off the field, Timão continues with the agitated news. One of the main news is about the new shirt debut, in honor of the world title won in 2012.
In addition, the day also had controversy between Arthur Elias, coach of the women’s team, and the Paulista Federation, news about the action brought by former player Jorge Wagner, players called up for the Brazilian team and planning for the Brasileirão Serie A.
Launch of Corinthians 3rd shirt
Images leaked on the internet, not yet confirmed by the club or Nike, of Corinthians’ third kit. The shirt would be in cream color, reminiscent of the tone of the club’s first uniforms, with kanji, ideograms that make up the Japanese alphabet, in honor of the country where the club won its second world cup.
The information is that this new shirt should be used before the finals of the Copa do Brasil, against Flamengo.
Arthur Elias critics against the São Paulo Football Federation
Last Wednesday (21), Corinthians faced Palmeiras in a classic valid for the 6th round of the Paulistão Feminino. Thinking about the Brasileirão final, Arthur Elias chose to start a team full of reserve players, in a duel that ended in a 2-0 victory for the rival.
Before the match, the coach made two criticisms of the São Paulo Football Federation, complaining about the calendar and saying that the entity lacked respect, citing the term “clown” in relation to the fact that the confrontation was played in the middle of the National Championship finals.
The situation was made even worse by the fact that Arthur’s interview, which was requested by the Federation itself, was not aired. Through his official Instagram, the Corinthians coach commented on the fact.
Jorge Wagner’s action against Corinthians
Since 2004, former midfielder Jorge Wagner has been charging in the Labor Court an indemnity related to Arena Rights, which would not have been paid by the club.
The issue is in relation to the divergence of the requested values. The former player, through his representative, states that the sum reaches R$ 566,380.49 while Corinthians, through its lawyers, states that the pending amount would be R$ 165,733.92.
Athletes called up for friendlies of the Brazilian team
This Thursday (22), coach Pia Sundhage released the list of athletes who will face Norway and Italy at Data Fifa in October. And once again Corinthians ends up standing out, with five players called up: Lele (goalkeeper), Tarciane (defender), tamires (left side), Jaqueline (attacking midfielder) and Adriana (attacker).
Brazilian Serie A
Despite the title chance in the Copa do Brasil, Corinthians remains focused on the Brazilian Championship. Today the club is in 5th place, with 44 points.
The title chance is remote, as they are 13 points away from the leader Palmeiras. But Timão seeks to finish the Brasileirão Serie A in the top positions, seeking to return to the G4 in the next round.
For that, the team coached by Vítor Pereira will have to beat Atlético-GO on Wednesday (28), and hope that Flamengo doesn’t beat Fortaleza.
Due to the free week of training, Corinthians should go into this duel with maximum force. There is even a chance that Maycon is at least related to the match.
